It was an interesting experience. The whole process however was a little awkward I must admit. I really looked forward to the day, but now that it is over I’m not sure how to feel about it. I personally like the band because of the music they make, especially the lyrics made some days a little brighter to me. I’m not the celebrity loving kind of guy you must know.
Anyway, the room we stayed in was completly empty, and we stood on the wall for about 10 minutes when the band came in. It was so quite that everyone could hear you breathing. I hoped that I would be actually able to have a conversation to them, but you can’t expect more than just smalltalk I guess. Either way, it’s just awkward to me to talk to someone I know through music so well, but personally I have no clue who the guy is who stands in front of me, plus everyone hears what you’re saying so no chance for heartbreaking stories.

Everything seemed like a routine to the guys, they just passed us signing our things. The LPU organisator didn’t even know the city they were playing at. The band members themselves were okay. Chester and Mike were really nice (f.e.: I asked Mike if they could play “The Untitled” instead of the original “In the end”), but Hahn was a little rude to me… But I’m not mad, I’m just one of million faces he sees every day, I think he doesnt even realize how much such a short conversation can impact on me.
I wished the whole thing could have been a little more personal. I wish I could just send them a letter or so, because I think Meet and Greets are just to short for me.
But I also realize that this is not so easy for a band of this size, I mean imagine flying form city to city every two days. Anyway enough of me already, maybe you guys have better experiences! Maybe I just don’t fit for M&G^^
