Default Meeting Your Heroes

As this weekend sees the feastival of fantastic films in Manchester with Ian Mcculloch (ZFE) in attendance today. I was wondering just who of their Heroes board members had met.

Personally i have met the following off the top of my head

Dario Argento/Goblin
Joe D'amato
Lucio Fulci
Catriona Mccall
John Morgan
John Saxon
Gunnar Hanson
Tom Savini
Jess Franco
Lina Romay
Jean Rollin
Brigette Lahaie
Traci Lords
Ruggerro Deodato
George Romero/David Emge/Ken Foree/Gaylen Ross

there are more but can't remeber all of them without checking

I was lucky enough to attend most of the Euro fests in the 90's plus many other signing events as well.

Mines been all music stars that i met, though i had orange juice with Kenneth Brannagh and James Ellis when they filmed the 'Billy' plays in the next street to mine as a kid.

My greatest time was the first time I met NBZ. Dennis Greaves invited me backstage to meet the band and sign aurographs . A good 20 to 30 mins they chatted for.
That beat meeting Joe Strummer and Joey Ramone put together, as to me Den's 'The Man'.

I've only met a few...Clive Barker is my only horror related one. At a Weaveworld book signing...I was last in line so we chatted for about 10 mins...was shit cool.

I gave Mike Patton an hour long tour of Dublin one day, that was a huge highlight as was a huge fan of Mr Bungle and FNM.

I've been totally lost for words with some...Justin Broadrick(Godflesh) I sat beside him at a bar for about 15 mins and couldn't think of anything to say...was terrified of saying something stupid to a total idol.
Chatted to Ted Parsons of Prong and Godflesh though quite easily the same day.

Same thing happened when I was face to face with Jim Reid of the Jesus and Mary Chain....complete blank, he looked scared!

Had a great chat with the lads from Ash and Mogwai at gigs

I met Lamberto Bava and Ruggero Deodato in Glasgow.

Both were very freindly and patiently singed every dvd sleeve that i brought with me.

I'll be meeting Joe Pilato and Ken Foree over the weekend.
