Just curious what folks think of this idea:
In 2007, I did a M&G with the band and got everyone to sign a 10" drum head, with MP drawing the DT logo in the center (on his own...I didn't request that). I was thinking about bringing the same drum head and having MM sign it to have the "complete" lineup (at least ever since JR joined). Would that be cool or tacky/weird?
For the DC stop of the ADTOE tour, I brought the original Lifting Shadows (box and all) and asked them to sign the box. MM said "you sure you want me to sign this? I'm not in it." I said of course I wanted him to sign it, he's part of the family now; JLB looked at me and laughed a little bit. For the three M&Gs I've done, they've all been very relaxed and signed anything in front of them.
I'll say that JP, MP (2007), and JM have been the most responsive during the M&Gs I've been a part of; JP especially. He joked with my wife and I a little about the GoT chair he's sitting in on the Guitar World cover I had him sign... he told my wife he has that chair and sits in it all the time for "inspiration". JP's got a natural laugh.
I try to remember to tell them that I appreciate what they do... and that they're still doing it.
