I am pretty sure that this topic was already brought up somewhere else and some time ago, but I couldn't find it anymore.

 

Anyway, these HH forum members I have met in person. Here we go ...:

 

PeterS:

Last year december I met Peter in a pub close to Munich. It was pretty icy on the streets and we both definitely had too much to drink to drive home. But well ........ :drink:

 

RichieZ:

I met Rich this afternoon in San Francisco. He picked me up from the hotel and together we went on a CD hunt at a well know used CD shop (Amoeba) and had lunch and a beer together. We talked a lot about "our" music, of course, and had a great afternoon. Thanks, mate ! :drink:

 

 

Anyone else met someone ??

Damn, it was a cold day of golfing but how many times do you hit the course and talk about Warrant, Reckless, Dirty Looks and Icon. All the while listening to the bands cranking from my mp3 player on the cart? Good times. We must do it again Rick.

Ive met 3 members who frequent the HH pages. Two I met a couple years before I joined the forum here. The members I've met are:

 

1.) Recordjnky (Aaron) - Won one of his ebay auctions years ago. I was living in Vegas at the time so we decided to met up and make the ebay transaction. I think the first time I won an auction I actually met him at his house.

 

2.) Retrospect Records (Sam) - After winning another one of Recordjnky's auctions, we arranged for me to pick up my CDs at one of his gigs. At the time Aaron and Sam were playing in a band together in one of the Vegas casinos. At that time Aaron introduced me to his brother, Sam.

 

3.) Lizzy - Where else would I have met him but at a Lizzy Borden show? He and I ran into each other at the Lizzy Borden show at Jaxx in Springfield, VA. on Halloween night last year. Really cool guy.

Can't say I really have. I met Way Cool Jr. at Rocklahoma, but she's more of a Sleaze Roxx person. I'm more than likely going to this years fest so if anyone else decides to go please let me know. I'm sure we can meet up there. Some of you went and didn't let me know or else we could have met up last year. If not for Rocklahoma I probably wouldn't have a chance to meet any of ya.

 

I still find it strange that Tim lives in T-town and I've yet to meet him. Ah well, that's just the way it goes.

I have NOT met Keef yet, even though he only lives an hour+ away. :( Would have met last year if he came to our party, but he pulled the old "my wife might have a baby at any moment" excuse... ;)

 

I HAVE met Wotty, Nick C & Jez when I was over in the UK about a year and a half ago. Spent a really nice afternoon downing a variety of ales at a variety of pubs in Windsor. Thanks for coming out to hang guys, I had a GREAT time, and I look forward to hopefully seeing all of you again on this side of the pond in 2009 perhaps? :drink:

Cold cold cold that day but still a great time nonetheless. Golf, beer and great tunes!

 

I'm thinking that Dakota Rock Fest sounds like a good time if you could make it down this summer.

I actually live pretty close to Rob62972, eaglesfan3000, and apparently Desslar. Maybe someday we'll run into each other.

 

I'm maybe an hour from eaglesfan, about 2 hours from Rob, and not sure how close to Desslar.

 

Anyone else live close to other members?

Not me I think out here in the pacific NW I am farthest from everyone. Even though I herd a rumor that Dark Star lives down Oregon way, but to Portland from me would be a 3 hour drive...

I think I am the lone board member who actually lives on the moon. I will say that if any of you are in the neighborhood, I would love for you to buy me a beer. Seriously, there are a couple of us in Oklahoma, but I never do nothing, so we have yet to meet. Also, if I remember correctly, JLP lives in Houston which ain't all that far.

 

I do imagine alot of you have seen me in your dreams though.

This is true... and damn romantic, I must say. The 'mustard scene' last night was just plain erotica.

 

I have met:

 

Glam Junkie (Lindsay) at a Deadthings/Tuff gig. He said I was the coolest person he'd met.

 

I also (unfortunately) met phaffas (Matt) at a Tesla gig. He said I was the coolest person he'd ever met, then he hugged me. When he went in for the kiss I had to cool things down a bit.

 

In seriousness, both very cool guys and I'd be happy to meet up again in the future beer and rock n'roll.

Unfortunately I have met Nick on a few occassions who is a really bad influence and keeps taking me to pubs and forcing me to drink something called 'Beer'. Wotty of course on a number of occassions, another visit is planned very soon, Pete the guitar god, as he mentioned above, a good afternoon and evenings drinking (once again influenced by Nick). For an American, I was very impressed with him and his drinking capacity of proper ale, and look forward to next year when the Brits invade the US for a re-match!!. TIM (2) Who I met at Firefest in 2006 and had a few beers with is also a top bloke and more beers are being arranged this week.

 

Hopefully the trip to the US will happen next summer, so I can meet a whole load more of the good people here on HH.

As Jez points out...I have met him a few times and he's trying to force himself on me again.....disaster...I don't usually drink <_< but he makes me....pure evil I tells ya! :headbanger::beerbang::lol:

 

The awesome Wotty on a day out to Windsor (what a stressful trip down that was I was wasted when I got there) to meet up with that guitar bloke Pete Fry....oh yeah and that Jez bloke was there again, hard to escape him.

 

I'm hoping to meet Bernd this Summer but with holidays and invasive in-laws it's looking slim but you never know.

    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
