Like me, you've probably met some famous musicians over the years of going to shows, record signings, or in-store appearances Most I've met were of course at concert halls, backstage, outside venues, etc. Anybody run into musicians in a place where you least expected to ever see them?
Over the weekend I was in a tiny record store in San Mateo, CA (SF Bay Area) when in walks Dave Murray (guitarist) of Iron Maiden! I've been a huge Maiden fan for 30 years, and this was totally surreal. Turns out he was visiting some family here. Not having any IM discs in my car, I re-bought their "Powerslave" CD, which he graciously signed. I acted like a teenage fanboy, gushing superlatives at this metal guitar god.
So let's hear your brushes with greatness (in the unlikeliest of places)!
