This is a fun one! Hmm... It's hard to remember all the run-ins but I'll do my best.

Nick Hexum from 311- seemed nice enough. Didn't get a vibe he was trying to get in my pants or anything.

Tesla- Yeah they all seemed pretty cool but that singer was the biggest burnout I've ever seen! I mean seriously, if that dude wasn't strung out on H when I met him, he is soooo permi-fried.

New Kids On the Block- Not "rock" stars, I know, but whateva. Joey McKintyre was pleasant and seemed frightened by the girls in the office fawning over him.

TSOL- Met them since they've been sober. They're friends with my husband and seem sooo nice (sober anyway, I've heard some horror stories.)

Tony Iommy(?) from Black Sabbath- Very sweet. Was asking his beautiful young gf for "some of that sweet stuff i like, you know, not sugar but like sugar. In the yellow package..."

Gene Simmons- Oh boy this guy if fo' real! He tracked me down on the street and asked for my number, ironically he was scheduled in our office later that day for an interview, so I politely avoided the question. He refused to do the interview until he had my number so I gave him a fake one. He tried calling it immediately and said, "That number didn't work..." Very persistent. He actually has a dude who's sole job is to collect phone numbers for him & keep his groupies in order, getting them to shows, etc. He's got a 1-800 number no lie. It was pretty cool to see a "rock star legend" (like that of rock stars employing people to get them groupies) in action- I thought that was a myth!

Nastiest- Lead singer dude from Queens of the Stone Age. He treats people like dirt when he thinks no one's looking.

Also some dude from that crappy pop punk band Homegrown- true assholes to their fans.

Gerard from emo outfit My Chemical Romance. I knew those guys when they were on Eyeball Records & lived in Jersey. Gerard used to be nice & nice to fans, I worked a booth where they did a meet & greet after they got famous & saw that douchebag tell a little boy "Aren't you cool?" When the little boy said "I got my hair cut just like yours."

Man, I wish I could remember more, I have so many stories...
