" He nodded and turned his back on me " He nodded , that wasn't cool enough for ya . I never understand why people think celebrities owe us anything .

fan ( noun ) a person who has a strong interest in or admiration for a particular sport , art form or famous person .

friend ( noun ) a person whom one knows and with whom has a bond of mutual affection .


You're a fan not a friend , your a stranger as far as he's concerned . Paying money to see the artist perform does not require them to be your friend , shake your hand, kiss your girlfriend or take a pix with you . Would it be nice ,yes , but to expect it , demand it or complain about it in a negative light . That's bush league .

It was 1991 or 1992 and I don't remember if it was the Super Bowl or the Final Four but Minneapolis hosted both events that year and I was a bartender in a hotel downtown. I was working in the lobby bar and a father of a handicapped kid comes up to me and tells me he just saw Reggie Jackson (former NY Yankee) and he asked Reggie if his son could get his autograph. without saying a word, Reggie signed the piece of paper the kid handed him and walked away. When the father looked at the autograph, it read "Arnold Palmer". The poor guy couldn't believe it. He was stunned.

I get the notion that Reggie doesn't owe anyone an autograph or a picture, etc. but to do that to a kid - a handicapped kid, no less - is disgusting. What a **** .

Got to spend sometime hanging out with a band that got to open for the crowes and they said never got to meet the Robinson s. He said the rest of the band was cool and fun to hang out with but the brothers kept to themselves and they never met them.

But they also said when they opened for Mule Warren was the best. Would give them tips on there craft and play with them. Taught them alot. Opening for the crows was a big break for y hem but they learned alot from opening for mule

It's no secret - I just don't get the Black Crows. Not a fan of them or Chris Robinson. But here's a slight digression that for me, is applicable:

Years ago, I was friends with this guy who was pretty damned rowdy - especially when he'd been DRANKIN!
After he'd already had a snootful, we found ourselves in this real pretentious, sophisticated bar.
Well, he (we) got a little too loud and rambunctious for them, so after a short while the owner came over and told us to leave.
I felt a little embarrassed, but my friend looked at the guy and said, "I've been thrown IN to better places than this!"

Snubbed by Chris Robinson? I hope that's as bad as life gets for ya.

I remember hearing in church awhile ago and I cant remember the exact topic
of it . But the pastor mentioned something about when people are rude,not very
nice and etc along those lines usually there is something going on in their life
or in the past that have effected them to be that way and come across towards
people in such a behavior. Something that is underlying/ an agenda that boils
over and then out and spills onto people. Is that always the case,
maybe not, but thats the impression I get sometimes when I am involved with people
and the general pubic with my line of work. I learned not to take it personally.
It could be a daily or weekly occurance that I would encounter situations like that,
So I have to look at it in that perspective.

It would be nice if there was a morally/ethically/manners police dept to put folks in
line ,huh?!?!

I wonder sometimes if it is a regional thing. People here in the midwest are some of
the nicest folks around. Of course you have your bad apples, but I would say the majority
are very friendly. I wonder if its a regional thing? I have heard comments from other people along those lines. Hopefully I won't offend anyone, but my wife and I traveled, lets just say,to the North East part of the US a couple of years ago . Beautiful country, but just different than Indiana and Hoosier hospitality. I am not saying there werent friendly people....they probably thought I was some goofy hilljack!!!

Ritchie Blackmore was a fairly regular customer at a pub I worked at in Bethel CT in the 1990s, I found out. I was the only person there who was even remotely a Deep Purple fan. I was (and am) actually a fanatic, so I was amazed by the possibility that I could run across one of my heroes.

Sure enough, it happened that I waited on Ritchie and Candace, who was completely unknown to me at that point - this was in 1992-93, pre-"The Battle Rages On." I waited on them politely all meal long, but when I dropped the check, I did have to admit to him that I was a huge fan. He was very pleasant and we talked a bit - he explained that Ian Gillan was back in the band, etc. I told him I got a really big kick out of the "Green Bullfrog" album, which is a jam session album featuring some Purple guys. He smiled and said that the album was rubbish.

After dinner, Ritchie headed to the bar to watch some UK soccer. Another waiter was astonished by my exuberance at having spoken to Blackmore. "Do they do 'Smoke on the Water'?" he asked me. He was a huge Phish-head. Anyway, intrigued, my waiter pal went to the bar and asked Ritchie if he was indeed Ritchie Blackmore. Ritchie said "No." My friend politely continued to ask, but, having no luck, switched the conversation to UK soccer, which he follows avidly. Ritchie was pleased to discuss the sport with a fellow fan, so they chatted for a while.

About 4 years ago I went to see GAB at a casino that has an outdoor amphitheater. I got there a few hours early and was inside the casino. I'm wearing a black T-shirt that says in white letters across the chest "got DUANE?". Some guy (Chank) came up to the side of me put his hands on my shoulders and turns me side-ways. I'm standing there kind of dumb-struck staring at Gregg Allman. Gregg looks at my shirt, extends his arm and we shake hands. We talked for a few minutes, he extends his arm again, shake hands and bid each other adieu.

I dont think people/fans/groupies realize how much they get bugged and baggered. I am sure it gets old after awhile to have people in your face constantly. You may not understand till you are in they're shoes nd probably never will.

With my profession I work with the public on a daily basis and I am no where the stature of those guys. I get people coming up to me in public. It usually does not bother me , but at times, enough
is enough.

Let these artists be. I know it comes with the territory, but come on, have some respect and let people live in peace.


I think that's what it boils down to. They want to left alone. I remember the painful look on look on Marc Ford's face as he shook my hand... man was he pissed I came over and said hi. David Gilmore saw me recognize him and shot me the most ferocious look, like "don't even think about coming over here" and I didn't. I won't mention my profession but I deal with many people as well. And I don't have the balls to turn my back on someone while they're talking to me. Never again. At least my crew had to be picked up off the floor they were laughing so hard.


If you want to be left alone, then work in the private sector. The whole goal in becoming a musician is to be recognized. If you can't take a second to smile and show a little appreciation, assuming the person doesn't come across rude with a sense of entitlement, then you're missing the point of gaining the celebrity status that you have achieved in the first place. Plus, it's just good PR. I ran Into Derek & Susan at the Waffle House last Saturday, and although I didn't want to interrupt their breakfast with their kids, we still said a quick hello, and they were both very nice. And I moved on quickly out of courtesy.

Seems like he did a good job of being left alone and not work in the private sector at the same time.

You might have confused "musician" with "rock star". The rock star wants to be recognized, a lot of musicians just want to play.

I agree with what was posted earlier. He's a stranger, you never know what you are going to get when you approach someone you don't know. Just because he is known to you doesn't mean he is going to be what you expect/want out of him. Yes it is good when people that you are a fan of turn out to be friendly in person, but sometimes they do not. Sometimes you just catch them on a bad day or when they are distracted. Either way just because he is famous doesn't mean he has to engage with everyone that comes up to him, nor should anything more than a nod be expected. It's nice when it's something more, but if not then no big deal.

...then dont...but since you did was Dereks mouth full of "Grannys Country Omlet?"
You know, those awkwards times when your eating out and its inevitable when your waitress/waiter ask you if everythings ok or you need anything.

Wareagle put it good in his last post.

I think from what I heard(maybe part of the reason), Derek wanted to break away from the ABB for more family time.

It's self gratifying for the fan I guess to feel ike they have met someone, or of noteriety, made eye contact and awknowledged them,in the know,part of something. Honestly I dont think it woud hurt Derek or anyone else if they had one day where know one came up to the on the street to greet them. It sounds like they are nice enough guys where they would never be a jerk or rude, which is great for the groupie/fan. Who knows what they think after the fan walks away? They could roll their eyes, immediately go wash their hands, bring out a little book and keep track, or thought maybe you had a profound effect on their lives. Like I mentioned,
I work with the public and do get noticed and approached , I would never be rude to people, just not my character. But that does not mean it's okay to come stand on my lawn or come up to me at dinner with my children and etc. People need to respect boundaries and be considerate/thoughtful, even if its for your own self gratification. The one you approach might be the nicest person in the world and probably would be courteous but it may bug them to. Just to good of a person not to say it.

Now if Ritchie Blackmore chased me down after a show and shook my hand asked me to go get a glass of bourbon and shoot the bull..then I am there. I could ask him to show me how to play Smoke On The Water, then I would get a strat upside the head.

Hey no secret I love the Black Crowes. They've replaced the ABB as my favorite band for a long time. I think Chris Robinson is the best singer, lyricist, front man in rock as well. I sounds to me like he acknowledged the original poster. What more do you want. I've met CR after a CRB show by the bus. He was very fan friendly. He signed everything. Honored every pictured request. Even made funny small talk with those there. There is a time and a place for everything. Bugging someone with family or waiting in line for a Sno-cone probably isn't. The poster didn't say why none of his buddies decided to bug CR.

How nice of you take make assumptions when you don't know what the **** you're talking about. For your uninformed information, there was nothing "awkward" about saying hello to someone who just walked into the restaurant, hence no "Granny's Counrty Omlette" had been ordered yet. Douchebag.

I have to say that Gregg is very personable. I met him at his books signing event at TBH in Macon. While he was signing my book I commented that we should just blow off the rest of the event and go ride our motorcycles. He smiled ear to ear, said that was a good idea and started talking Harley-Davidson's. For a moment, I thought he was going to take me up on the offer, but then one of the staff members put a stop to our conversation and ushered me on.

A few years ago, I did meet Ice-T at a hotel bar in NYC. I asked if he would like to do a shot of tequila with me. He accepted, so I bought the shots and he invited me to sit at his table. He thanked me over and over again for the drink and said it was a real treat. We bullsh*tted and his manager took our picture. As soon as the manager took our picture, others recognized him and started swarming around the table. He said that his queue to leave, but shook my hand, thanked me for the conversation and drink before he left.

72fan: I asked you how you know that Chris Robinson is a drug addict and you reply "it's common knowledge". You don't give one quote from any book, magazine or other source. Then you post a long quote from a former Crowes band member which says a lot about himself and nothing about Chris.

You really sound like an over-critical loose cannon. Ok, Ok, Chris Robinson probably does a few drugs. What and how many is not for you to theorize. Get that word..........THEORIZE, because that's what you're doing. What are you preaching about drug use by musicians for? We all know a lot of it goes on. Do you hang out in front of rock 'n' roll shows with a Bible and a megaphone? I'd certainly believe you if you said "Yes".

Oh, one more thing: I've seen The Black Crowes three times and they've been great every time. The last, and the very best one, was 2009 @ The Fillmore in San Francisco. Chris put on an incredible performance; I and my date were completely blown away by him. And I've seen The Chris Robinson Brotherhood twice...........GREAT live band, and again, great performances by Chris. Chris has proven himself to me onstage. I'll form my own opinion by that, not from some overcritical, self righteous internet pariah like 72fan.
