(Did VIP on the first leg of the MF tour, second leg I waited by the bus, and got something signed, but was told not to talk to him, but as I got my item back, I said "Thanks Al!" and he said, "Thank YOU!" so... I semi count that XD)


"but was told not to talk to him"

What's that all about?


The guy in charge of the VIP that tour, that directed people (ect) and was back at the buses the other time was the biggest *cleaning tool* I've ever seen in my life. It honestly kind of soured the experience a little. Hopefully it's someone else this time.

If you're referring to JW, he is still there this tour.

I don't know his name, but thanks for the warning.

Was it just me? Did no one else have any issues with him? (I mean during the VIP time too)

I remember JW and he seemed okay. Of course, by then it was very late in the tour and it must've been past the point where so many people complained that JW was forced to change and I met Al at an early show where the M&G took place before the show.

Not I. He's always been cool to me. He even commended me on my Off The Deep End shirt.

Not as part of Al's signing. If he was, it would just be 'cause he really had nothing better to do.

I feel like this is a stupid question but I'm gonna ask it anyway...

Last time I got the VIP I bought Mandatory Fun on record, even though I don't have a record player, just so he could sign it, and I framed it, and it's hanging on my wall.

This time, I want to get, probably my favorite album, signed, "Running With Scissors"

But.. is it bad to get a CD (Er, CD cover) signed? I mean, just because it's small. Would that be enough room for Al?

Thoughts?

Long as it is important to you! CD's are the easiest thing to carry. The whole band can fit there autographs on a CD.
