I completely understand that sometimes the guys in the band can be having a bad day. As far as Sully last night, it wasn't BAD at all, just indifferent, and that's perfectly cool. I wasn't judging, simply stating the details of the situation. I should mention that just before I got to the table, he asked the security "dude" behind him (one of their crew guys) to stand back a little bit because his, uh, man parts were a little too close for his comfort.) Which was funny. So, by saying he wasn't as energetic as the other 3, I meant that in no way as judgment.
But to carry on the meet and greet argument...I certainly don't expect a specific amount of time for them to spend with ME, but I think what most people can agree on is a LITTLE BIT of time with the group. How about just a 10 minute or so shooting-the-bull time with everyone, while you're signing and taking pics, etc? I completely COMPLETELY understand their busy and have a schedule, I really do. But if their management is going to sell VIPs for that much, can ya at least give us a LITTLE BIT of your time? VIP stands for VERY IMPORTANT PERSON. Being rushed by the powers that be certainly doesn't make it feel that way. (And as a side note, some of their crew guys, or management or whatever they are, I say ARE COMPLETE DOUCHES. I will just say to the steroid, no neck dude wearing the AFFLICTION shirt, that wearing an MMA shirt doesn't make you a badass, k?) Someone needs to remember (and I have a feeling that most of these issues are stemming from management (the powers that be) at least I hope so), that the fans are who makes these guys who they are. If nobody bought the music or came to shows, they'd be baggin' groceries somewhere.
Like I said, overall, not a bad experience, just not worth the cost.
