    Default My most impressive "I met a celebrity today" thread yet

    OMG. Most amazing day ever.

    We went on BBC Radio today to do an interview (see our myspace for details) and afterwards we decided to go over to Noel Gallagher's house to see if he was home. So we got there and rang the doorbell and then a voice came over the intercom saying "Hello?" and it was Noel! So I said hi and explained that we were a band and fans and wanted to give him a CD etc. and he said "Ok hold on" and then the door opened and there he was!!!!

    And he stood and talked to us for about five minutes, and we explained that there are two Russians in the band, and we gave him a CD, and then we said we'd like to support him in Moscow and he said "That's cool with me but you'll have to speak to my managers, let me give you their phone number" and he did!!!! It was amazing!!!!

    As he closed the front door he said "Cool, well I'll see you in Moscow then..." (the show is on March 23rd).

    AAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!! !!!!!!!

    Congrats Stef. You deserve a big group-hug from the Gallaghers for your continued patronage.

    I would have to say Chris Martin and Trent Reznor were the nicest celeb musicians I've met.

    Chris took flowers I gave him before a Coldplay show and put them on his piano for the Coldplay show. The flowers were on the piano the entire show.

    Trent let me interview him when I was a volunteer DJ at my college radio station. Awesome. (my interview was absolutely horrible).

    I think the story is different. Stef stalks Oasis around quite a bit, and we get different Oasis stories with each stalking occurrence.

    Me too. Also, didn't Steff meet someone from Oasis in a bar once? That's when he told him/them about his band the first time.

    Stef, fucking awesome! Keep us posted on any developments.

    Met many muscians over the years, but the BEST guy, personality wise, was Dave Wakeling. Great attitude. My band had opened up for him, and after the show, he sat and spoke with me for about a half hour. He asked me how they sounded, and actually asked me about some equipment advice. I joked with him that it should be the other way around, and he said basically that no one is ever too good to learn something new! Class act!

    Yes, this was my first time ever meeting Noel. Last time we went to his house he wasn't home.

    I met Gem Archer (guitarist) a few weeks ago in a bar and told him about the band.

    Noel's address is not public knowledge, no.

    Randy - here is the info on the Moscow gig:NME article.

    We called the venue and they said there's no support planned yet, which is why we went to Noel's house today, to put ourselves forward for it.

    To be honest I was as surprised as anyone when he actually opened the door and then said he liked the idea. I will remember that moment to the day I die.

    Stef, want to have a band rivalry once I release a demo EP? We can be Oasis vs. Blur, only be friendly behind the scenes.

    I think it's funny how Wakeling leads a group called The English Beat and Ranking Roger leads a group called The Beat and they each try to claim they are the successor band to the orginal group.

    It's on Malden Road, the same road as the Barfly. Nearest tube is Chalk Farm. Just walk down that road and you'll see the Fiddler's Elbow pub, on your left. We'll be the third band on, around 10pm. Come and say hello if you do come! And I'll put you down as "Randy" on your reduced-price guestlist too.

    Also, I have tickets for that night at the Albert Hall with the Coral, but I can't go cause we're playing a gig that night. So I'm going to the one the night before instead, with The View supporting.

    I swear Tom Waits' drummer is his son now. I might be wrong though.
