Haha nope it's on the news page. First news article and his quote is on there :lol:
Bill was lovely to me. I was a bit worried as he seemed a bit off with the person in front but he spoke to me for a couple of mins about the wormhole effect (I got that part of the album signed) and about Skye...and he has the tigtest hand shake! Really lovely guy...they all were.

Oh yeah...I really enjoyed them. It was my 5th time seeing Metallica so it was nice to be excited for another band too :lol:

If they really are that friendly, then at their next gig i might try and find and meet them, just to talk about music and gooseberry. that would be awesome.

I thought it was pretty sweet of Bill to pose with us, he looked knackered when Zee asked him to. Top guys. Hope I get to see em and meet em again.

frakk. I didn't bother with feeder. gutted. I'm an idiot, I didn't check the times or anything. Woulda queued up for hours to get some signings n pics n handshakes n whatnot. I got a quick handshake from Bill after the pic but that was it. And also a sly nod from Brann as I walked past lol. I was being a nervous fan boy :lol: he's too good on the drums for mere peasants like me to talk to him :lol:

Bill has a tight handshake...I was thinking "is this really happening?" And he had the biggest grin on his face which made me feel more at ease. But when I was getting my photo took with him I could feel his plug tunnel ring in my hair and I was hoping it wouldn't get tangled and get caught!
Brann said I was awesome :lol: and spoke to me for a while.
Ahh they were all really kind...can't wait to see them again when they return to the UK.

I loved it. seeing Brann nailing every song from 10 feet away was an amazing experience. Especially the Iron Tusk drum solo bit. I've been trying to play it for so long lol, but seeing the master at work was immense.

Oh yeah; I love Branns' drumming. I was at the front...I was chuffed to bits!
It was a shame they only got 35 mins...my friends I went with who have never heard of Mastodon before only got into it near the end!

They'll come back and then maybe you'll meet them!

EDIT: Ooo thanks for the link! They wern't in the grindstore booklet I got sent
