my picture with the band was available on-line the very next day. i would say those pics should be up within days for sure, and they come out very nice. nope, can't take a photos with your own camera.
@indalo they will probably discourage getting more than 1 thing signed. you can certainly bring something - the CD, a shirt...hell, 1 guy brought his guitar and case and got that signed. but they herd you through pretty quickly. they are on a pretty tight schedule, but everyone is very friendly and cordial. its a great opportunity, and a wonderful experience. enjoy the moment!
the M&G in boston (10/10) was awesome. as i feared, this 43 year old guy turned in to a 13 year-old at a bieber concert. i was so nervous around the guys, it was all i could do to keep it together. when i walked up for the picture, JP looked and smiled at me and for a moment i thought he was going to put his arm around me and welcome me in to the group lol. our host gave us our limited edition posters before the autograph line which was cool - someone got the message somewhere! going through the autograph line was cool, but again my words failed me when i tried to talk to the guys. i think i told MM that i looked forward to hearing him with the band for many years to come. JR looked a little preoccupied. maybe he was having an 0ff-day or not feeling all that great. JMX looked directly at me as i blurted out something...not sure if he asked me a question or if he was just giving me his undivided attention, but i couldn't hear him all that well so i'll never know. i joked with JP something about "i told myself i would keep it together here, but i don't know..." to which he gave me a big smile and said "well, don't lose it on me now" LOL. i told him that i really apprecicated the M&G opportunity. i told labrie that i loved his voice, and that i didn't give a shit what the critics say about it, to which he replied "bleh-fuck the critics. who gives a shit what they say, right?" made me grin from ear to ear. the guys were all very friendly and cordial. what an experience. would do it again in a heartbeat.
edit: tried to insert my picture, but failed in doing so or its not allowing me to. sorry!
gosh - it was late 90s or early 00s by the time i became a fanatic.
i was a guitar player in a lame cover band when an acquaintance of mine let me hear a sample of what his band was doing. then, he loaned me his inspiration - images and words. i heard[b] metropols pt. 1, [/b]and that was it for me. i think i then picked up a change of seasons and awake. seasons was awesome, but those covers are phenomanal. awake is still one of my all-time favorites.
i haven't watched score in a while, and it was great as i recall. HOWEVER...
doesn't budokan have "instrumedley" on it? i could watch that over and over again for hours.
