Re: how do I get backstage??


or do it the old fashioned way...go through the back door...knock out the guards, and dress up as them pretending to be someone!

Re: how do I get backstage??


catapult....helicopter....borrough underground and pop up like a heavy metal gopher?

I don't know. I always dreamed of the chance encounter around the town or in a pub, like some lucky DP fans have described. In a situation like that, you're more apt to be remembered by them, than if you're just one of the millions of screaming masses that happened to sneak in backstage.

If I ever got to meet DP, I would want them to think of me as a real person, not a groupie. I always thought the backstage approach dilutes the human element of the encounter.

Get some empty flat boxes, put on your best smile, walk towards the security guys and use the best punchline ever:'I have got the pizza delivery for Mr. Paice".

For me, it was a highly complex logistical operation involving four or five different people... and I'm still not quite sure how it actually happened emoticon

But then they'd just take the boxes off you and send you away.

If you're going to take that approach then what you need to do is get a wetsuit, some thick rubber gloves and a gas mask and tell the security guards that you're here for Mr Glover's sponge bath. emoticon

So if they´d send you away after they´ve taken the boxes they´ll get you back as soon as the realize there is there are no pizzas in the boxes. Then you´re one of a few who can seriously tell he was beaten up by members of Deep Purple!emoticon

The question was "how do I get backstage?", not "how do I get the !@#$ kicked out of me by some overweight bald men that failed to get into the police academy". emoticon

Re: how do I get backstage??


The only time I got backstage is when I knew someone from the security(and even then, sometimes they received strict orders...).Otherwise I met Paice and Morse at a guitar and drum clinic in the afternoon before a show and Lord at his hotel after a show.
I met Don Airey when he was on tour with Jethro Tull just by wandering in the corridors of the concerthall in the afternoon(no guards, no nothing...).
Oh yeah and Glenn Hughes by flirtin with his translator and gettin her drunk(that happened in Russia 12 years ago and it worked!)

I don't know how to post quotes with the member's name on it, but Ritchieshair wrote this gem!

Yea! That's some pretty funny !@#$ right there.

[how do I post quotes from other members anyway?]
