So, Duff was bringing his "Loaded" band to Inverness, I was soooo excited, one of my hero's playing in my home town!! So I got to the gig to be told that people were being charged £30 to meet him!!! Now I'm a massive fan, I love Guns, Duff, anything to do with GN'R basically but Im not the best paid job in the world and I have a mortgage to pay so I don't have a spare £30, now I know alot of you would probably pay 10 x that to meet the man for like a minute but as much as I love him, GN'R etc I don't think its right that you should have to pay to meet anyone, so I watched the show(which was quite gd, he played So Fine, Dust N' Bones, Its so Easy, Attitude, New Rose etc) and hung out outside hoping to meet him at his tourbus.
So he came out and walked right past all of us, and one of my friends(I don't know why she did it) shouted "asshole", and he came outta the tourbus and started asking "who called me an asshole", and she was like "I did", and he was like "why?", so I thought I would try and do a decent thing and said "well she said it for me cauz I didnt get a chance to meet you earlier cauz I didnt have a spare £30 to meet you" (again, I dont even know why I said that) and he started asking me "do you think I'm an asshole", straight away I was like "NOO!!!!, honestly i don't" and he kept asking me and sayin "you think I'm an asshole dont you", so it was pretty ackward. I did get a photo with him and he signed my Appetite record and we ended on good terms but I was basically kinda heartbroken :-(
My friend(the girl who shouted asshole) ended up having a wee kiss with a member of his band and I did ask Duff "who wrote Don't Cry
" but I'll probably never meet him again and I'll never forget the fact that I made an ass outta myself infront of one of my hero's
So....it was a bit of a wierd night, I did get to meet him(without having to pay) but wasn't how I planned it would be.
You guys will probably think that I'm the asshole but I'm not, I wouldn't even pay £30 to meet Axl, I would rather meet him cauz he wants to meet his fans, not pay for the privilidge.
So there ya go then.
