Meeting Korn & your experiance~
I won tickets for a meet & greet by a contest from the 97.1 The Eagle "Questions for Korn" I was one of the lucky winners, Munk Kimberly NORTON instead of NORMAN, but that's not that bad.. you can see it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyK0L35RonE
I won 2 tickets, so I had to find a guest. My boyfriend, lamely said he had to work, so the only person who had the time to come was an old friend from high school. She liked Korn back in the day, but I wanted someone to experience meeting my favorite band with me (I should of just found someone waiting in l of the show, someone who would appretiate it:/ )
Anyway, when it was time, all the people who bought the passes online for the meet & greet and us Eagal winners were lined up as the band made their waygn our posters. *The bouncers said NO pics, a sucked*
JD was the first to make his round. My chick friend was first, she's a hottie & dressed as so, "Hi!" she said, Jonathan was really sweer & even padded her on the sholder. I was next, wearing my Untouchables hoodie and all. I was so "starstruck" my favorite singer, I said nothing... therefore- I guess- Jonathan said nothing back... He just signed my poster & went to the next guy, who him up... I was kinda disappointed and heartbroke.
Munkey was next & was the coolest one to meet next to Ray. He signed my Ibanez poster. "I hope the bouncer doesnt see I sneaked this in for you to sign.. they said they would kick anyone out who did or takes pics" Munk repiled, " I won't let them kick you out." That made my night :) Fieldy, who did't really seem to wanna be there, he was silent. Last, but not least was Ray, "You from Dallas?...I love this city" He was really cool & nice.
All in all, with my experience, if you meet your favorite band/actor/idol- say something, anything. Because if you don't, like me, you will always regret your silence & wonder what they would of said. This was probably the only time I will meet my favorite band.
Anyone have any stories to share?

Re: Meeting Korn & your experiance~
I met JD, Fieldy, Head and Munky this year while at the airport awaiting a flight (Was flying home from seeing them play a festival the day before)
I noticed a small group of fans hanging around with Korn stuff, realised that the band must have been flying out that day, and thought I would join them and try my luck.
Jon and his bodyguard came though first. He appeared to be in a hurry and couldnt stop for long but he did sign my TPS cd. His bodyguard said no photos though. I thanked JD for the music and said that I hoped Zeppy was doing ok with his diabetes. He said he was doing better now which was good :)
Later on Fieldy, Head and Munky came through, Fieldy was pretty quiet and seemed tired but signed stuff and took photos and was nice. Head was hilarious! He thought one of the fans there looked like Kirk hammett and acted all excited about having a photo wth him, which my girlfriend took. He was super nice. I told him how great it is to have him back in KORN and its great to see him happy. He said that its been awesome being back with the guys and that he really appreciated it.
Munky was really cool and chilled out. They are both exactely how you see them in their dvd's, really down to earth and friendly. I said to Munky that he is beginning to remind me a bit of Kirk Hammett, he was pleased with that and said Kirks a legend.
Didnt see Ray...He might have caught a different flight which was too bad. He seems cool too!
