    I'm still kinda bummed about all this D. Oh, well/ Live and learn. Sometimes I guess childhood idols don't always turn out to be who you think they will be. Mabye he ate a bad pita, ya think?:D

    I shot you some more in an email. For the most part yes. Some of the distance concert shots are grainy as was to be expected.

    The anthony/ball shot turned out okay, and you can see flea there as well.

    Should I post this pic of you with the Plower?!?!

    He is on the "Zone Diet" book plan. He is looking a hell of a lot better, and was great to be around as always!

    I'm only posting this because I can't find any other way to subcribe. I wanna hear the Flea story.
     
  11. Was this in seattle? at the key arena? Im so uninformed.. had to hear about the show the day after it happened. Lets hear this story though... ive met quite aa few rockstars, and alot of em get road worn and unsocial.


    On another note.. you got a shop in spokane where I could stop by and check out some of those basses sometime?

    Well this is Darrin's thread so if he expresses that he wants my opinions shared on this subject in this thread then I will share.

    I first off want to convey that the comment was made totally IMHO and Flea may have been having a bad night. Although in a way I am probably more upset and sad by the other night and its events than I should be. Please keep both of these points in mind.

    Having said that. I still have too much respect for him and the musical contributions he's made to drag his name through the mud publicly on what could have been a personally bad night for him and his band. If he did not turn out like the person I thought he would be that is my mistake and not his.:(

    If Turner or any of you turned out not to be as you potray yourselves for whatever reason I would not share my opinions with your peers and fans since they are in fact my opinions and views.

    Although, I think enough conclusions can be drawn from the above comments I've made above though for you to understand I was disappointed........

    Fixer and I probably first caught him at a bad time to talk to him. He was sitting in his dressing room by himself, the door was open and was sitting in plain site. I said hi and asked if I could get an autograph. He shook his head no so we just moved on. It's the whole you never get a 2nd chance to make a first impression.

    Watt was kind enough to introduce me to Flea, he talked a little to me. I asked for a photo, and it seemed like that was a struggle. SO I didn't bother to ask for his autograph again.

    We could of just caught him on a bad night, but yeah we didn't catch the Flea we were hoping to meet.

    I also got a death stare from Anthony after taking his pic.........

    What a shame, too bad anthony didn't sock you, could of been worth a few bills :D

    I guess you never know until you are on that side of the fence, but it would too make me feel bad.
