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.

    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12. Quella Sera (Bonus Track)   Night Pleasure Hotel is:   Alex Mari: Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Sebastiano Barbirato: Guitar, Bass, Backing vocals Gianluca Pisana: Drums, Piano, Backing Vocals
    • Queen Shrike = Queensryche 👍
    • and the new Gunship cd maybe not so much AOR but damn good stuff
    • I've enjoyed pretty much all of their output thus far..inc this  
    • First I've heard of these guys.  A bit of a Danny Wilde vibe on vocals for me.  I like it.
    • New song 'Give The Night Away'.    
    • I can't remember the ins and outs of it, but last year he put up a tweet about how anyone who does cover songs is unoriginal and have no talent, and he would rather listen to the original. I have no issue with the second part of his statement as that is all down to personal taste, but for him to call out bands as unoriginal and lacking talent when bands he listens to have done covers is quite laughable. Every time he posts shit like that I reply and he always ignores me as he knows he is chatting shit. He does it with wrestling as well. Called someone out for instulting a woman wrestler, and saying it's unacceptable to insult wrestlers like that. Pointed out he always calls Brock Lesnar a gorilla and he he should practice what he preaches .. ignored again As I say, always has to pretend he knows everything, but always gets caught out.
