Meet and Greet...Smell my Feet
I am an old school guy for sure but this Meet and Greet thing is something new to me. I know lots of act put on these things now but back in my day, unless you were a selected groupie or the drug dealer, you didn't meet anyone. From my personal experience, after a show the last thing you want to do is press the flesh. For one thing you should be real dehydrated and sopping wet from sweat not to mention that you would be a bit deaf and worn out as well. If you weren't then you didn't give it your all that night. What I always liked to do was to sit down quietly somewhere offstage and drink a lot with a strong fan blowing on me while the roadies started to break down the gear. Later on I would wash up and get changed into some street clothes, get together with the band and selected friends and go have dinner, or breakfast as the case may be then straight to the hotel for a well earned sleep. Now this was back when I was a kid of 20 or 30...
Now, it seems like the band has to "party" after this grueling ordeal which for some very young musicians might be fine but with the over 60 types as our Texas cousins are, I bet they just want to get back to the hotel and get some shut eye! You got a performance to remember which is a bit of a miracle in itself considering their age, and now you want to "party"??? SMELL MY FEET!!!
