I had the same experience with Paul Westerberg. God, he was the nicest rock star I have ever met (and strangely I've met quite a few here in Seattle from Jonathan Richman to Peter Buck). I was so afraid to meet him because I would be crushed if he was rude. But he was incredibly gracious.quote:Originally posted by Liz Taylor:
[qb]Two weeks later I met Paul Westerberg (of Replacements fame), who I've idolized my whole life, after a show and not only did he look just like Paul Westerberg, but he had that "you're my new best friend for the next two minutes" thing that fans seem to crave. He would take all the time in the world you wanted and happily pose for pictures, kisses, anything.
So, although it was more fun to meet Paul overall, Neil is more like I think I would be if I were a rock star, so he's still cool with me ;-)[/qb]
I imagine Neil to be amzingly friendly. But I would be afraid to meet him. He's quite close to a deity in my mind. I think it's the part of my thinking that has decided to remain a teenager.
