Re: FOTE Members vs FrenzForum Members??

frenzwebmistress (Guest) ·
From what I hear from Peter, not every fan club member is into the internet, has decent access, or is interested in the forum. I think there are more like 13,000 Frenz of the Enz members, but being active here is not a must. Also, don't forget that I have it set up so that ANYBODY can read the forum but you have to sign up to post. So maybe we have 1500 members and 13,000 readers.

Re: is it silly to want to meet Neil??

Bean ·
You know SarahBee, I've thought about that many times before. Sometimes I can't muster up the energy or nerve to do it, but when I have, I've never been disappointed. Neil usually takes a half an hour or so to come out and greet people. The crowds are typically smaller, so you'll have a great chance to talk to him and have him sign something if you want usually at the bus or back door. I even caught him at Gourmet Garage (a sort-of prepared food/grocery store)in nyc before a show on the TWT...

Hi Sarah - welcome! Sounds like you're approaching a place similar to where I found myself last summer awaiting my first opportunity to meet Neil after 15 years. It's great that you're generating some discussion here to move that nervous and expectant energy! I echo what all the others on this thread have said, but I'll add my unique experience of meeting Neil. First of all let me say that in the time since I did meet him I've realized that I had a great deal of expectation riding on that...

...whew! I don't go up to Neil after shows, though my husband does and I've had alot of Finn-interaction over the years that has been meaningful. Though I gave advise to the person who questioned wanting to meet Neil, I say this: he is a man, he's doing his job, etc...he's tired after shows and I bet a ton of people give him gifts, etc or say things he's heard a million times. When he tours, his life is in disarray (Who among us hasn't traveled for work and been bummed by it???) and he's...

Re: neil's astrological chart?

I'm kind of an astrology freak and have many books on the subject, but yeh it's hard to do a birth chart if you dont know what time he was born. Anyway, if you combine the sun sign (gemini) with his chinese horoscope (dog) it says 'he often lacks inner balance, as he is always edgy and on the defnsive. He adopts extreme, conflicting attitudes, as if to emphasise the duality belonging to the sign of Gemini. The more he appears fatalistic and clear-headed, going out of his way to be derisive...

I remember when I first saw Neil on the street after a show it was hard to believe that this was the guy who was just BLOWING MY MIND when he was on stage. He didn't even look like I thought Neil would look.(He was much more worn looking than I expected.) I wish I had known then that he doesn't like to sign autographs because I felt like I could only approach him to say hi if I had something to sign. Anyway, he seemed tired and hurried, BUT I think he does sincerely TRY to be nice to his...

Liz Taylor, I agree wholeheartedly with your observations about Neil - I was struck as well the first time I saw Neil with how worn he looked. Much different than the rock star image in my head.

This is an interesting topic. I guess after 22 years (has it really been that long?) Neil meeting fans etc is one area that I've either been part of ,or observed for several decades now. I have so many wonderful memories of things that he has done, and most of it fan friendly and stuff he doesn't have to do...a lot that fans have no idea that he initiated. I remember this gig on one of the last UK tours and it was raining, Neil looking out of the band room window on a 2nd level and says...

Lester...I encourage you to read the review threads from the tour and decide for yourself whether you think the crowds were nice to Neil. In my opinion, I think he had some wonderful crowds (I SO WISH I'd been in Chicago and DC!!!!!) but it sounds like he had some really rude ones, also. And he's always nice enough not to react, but you KNOW it has to irritate the hell out of him. The one instance, where there were 2 people talking right down front the whole time and Neil asked them "what...

The Portland show was ABSOLUTELY amazing. I'm pretty sure "concert going" doesn't get any better than that.

The energy was completely warm and welcoming throughout the audience that night, and...
