Being a MASSIVE Paul Rodgers fan I decided to bite the bullet and spring for the meet and greet package for this Friday’s Paul Rodgers/Jeff Beck show in Boston. $225 later (NOT including the price of my concert ticket) and I am starting to get a bad feeling about what the “experience” will be like.
Initially I was very excited at the idea of getting a Free album or two signed but this morning I got an email from the company that is handling it telling me that I would NOT be allowed to use my camera or cell phone for photos and that they would take the photos and I would have to wait as long as two weeks for them to appear online so I can grab them.
All I need now is an email saying “no autographs” and I will be VERY irate about all this..
Show is this Friday. Keep you all posted
INFURIATING news! Nowhere in ANY literature did the company handling the meet and greet say “No Autographs” yet after paying $225 and missing much of Jeff Becks set in order to get in line, we were treated to “No Autographs” “No Cameras” “we take the photo” and that photo will be online in about two weeks”.
Paul himself agreed to sign Free’s first album for me but the handlers shooed me away after the photo was taken.
After telling me I couldn’t have it in the photo they told me I couldn’t grab it off the table after Paul agreed to sign it..
That's just wrong!
Larry, if you really want Paul's signature on the 2 Free albums email Lucy Piller
who is his assistant and she will get them signed for you...
Her email is email@example.com she also would be able to get Simon Kirke to sign them also I hope this helps
Speaking of Paul, does anyone have a full band signed album by The Firm? Either the first LP or Mean Business.
There is a fully signed debut LP on the current block at RR Auction. Apparently comes with a LOA from Roger Epperson. See the below URL:
Thanks MC...Met Simon many moons ago and he’s great people
they things are handled buy companies and u are treated like cattle
always get in wrinting what u will get
the rolling stones promise u for 25k 45 seconds only of a meet and great
Having said all this.., Paul Rodgers put on a CLINIC tonight on what constitutes being a frontman...
I simply have no words to express his awesomeness.. Set was an even split between Free and Bad Co with some surprises thrown in
And his band was phenomenal as well...
Unbelievable! Many of these "handlers" are just jackasses handed a lanyard and act like stormtroopers. Probably take delight in seeing a fan loosing out on an autograph. Sorry for you.
