Well, not so much "crazy" but funny....

At the Hershey show a few weeks ago, I had three thirty-something men behind me (which is fine, my age group, etc...). But, they CONSTANTLY talked about their cars and changing the spark plugs during Stevie's "Beautiful Child."

Then, a conversation that went something like this:

GUY #1: Oh, man I gotta piss.
GUY #2: Well go then.
GUY #1: Oh, man, I can't. "I'm So Afraid" is coming up and it's their greatest ****ing song ever.

[a few seconds pass...Stevie is singing about not being a child anymore...]

GUY #1: Oh, MAN...I gotta piss.
GUY #3: Well, piss in your cup if you have to go that bad.

No, sorry buddy....DON'T DO THAT...especially with me standing right in front of you!!!

Nevermind the two middle-aged women, drunk out of their minds, swirling and laughing. One of them says she has to puke.

Leave it to me to find myself in the middle of spewing bodily wastes!!

I just received my incredible bootleg DVD of the Irvine show (literally the best bootleg ive ever seen) ...as well as the Chula Vista show and I loved seeing the man get on the stage at the Chula Vista show, put his arms around Stevie and Lindsey and then being tackled off the stage, and almost knocking Lindsey over lol

Most of this is in my review of last night's show...but I'll post it anyway.

As I'm sitting there waiting for the show to start a woman behind me is talking to her husband and says "They're new album is called The Dance"

But the biggest idiot last night was one very drunk and high man probably in his late 40s or 50s. I could smell his marijuana. Before the concert started - and it started 15 minutes late - he was yelling "Let's go! Let them trip, I got here on time!" He also said that "the whole band is f*cking crazy". After The Chain he yelled "Where's Christine!?" The worst part was after Red Rover when he said "Let's get back to what we paid for!!" I think during World Turning he said "I'm gonna need a smoke" and then at the beginning of Don't Stop and I a big wiff of it. Good thing I was enjoying myself and singing along between gags.

That is greatness, right there!!! Guy #1 is a smart man!! LOL

Well, at the Texas shows, Brian (estranged4life) and I were "molested" by women. LOL The drunk lady next to me in Houston needed to be shot with a tranquilizer gun because OMG, was she the most annoying person I've ever seen in my LIFE!!!!

Exclamation Way too many...

"Crazy" moments happened during the 3 shows I attended:

July 1,2003 OKC-
Nearly dying of heat stroke because the humidity was unbaribly high.

Sitting next to 2 big muscle bound jock types who acted bad assed and tough until "Landslide" started, Then one of the two started to flap his wrists up-and-down in an effiminate fashion and screamed "Oh...My...God...Landslide...WEEEEEEE!!!" Livia (Who was a few rows in front of me) was looking back at me when these guys started this and all I could do was shrug my shoulders.

And finally that crazy Dutchman Gerald (shackin' up)...Livia & myself kept looking in Gerald's direction to watch his reacton to seeing his idol Linds' on stage.

July 3,2003 Dallas-
First visit to the HRC (Hard Rock Cafe) in Dallas and I felt paranoid when I noticed "some" people at the bar were staring at my "Rumours" T-Shirt...Turns out to be Christy (Wondergirl), Seteca (Yo buddy) & company.

Made a great impression on Christy by taking a "frat fall" on the steps of the stairway at the HRC while going to check out the upstairs area (And not a single FM related item was found in the HRC...BS on that!!!)

Getting food poisoning from the HRC...Nothing like going to a concert sick as hell, Especially a sick person trying to win "front row" tickets thru a radio station contest he was more or less "volunteered" for

Moral to story, AVOID the HRC in Dallas!!!!

June 16th 2004-
Finding out that parking was $12...They must be CRAZY for that amount!

As previously mentioned by Christy, Having a drunken female fan use me for her "personal entertainment & boy-toy", But at least she was an attractive drunken female

Coolest moment I remember was an African-American couple about 3 rows behind me who were singing along to all the songs being played, Including the SYW songs...Hella cool

Liddy stared and at me during the guitar solo during 'Come' in Cleveland this year. Odd...yes Crazy...definately. I hope I don't look like a women under concert lighting. I was uncomfortable to say the least.


I'm usually the crazy fan...so no crazy fan stories

Hmmm..I'd have to say the funniest moment I experienced was at the very first Mac concert I attended at St. Paul in June of 2003. There was a couple (late 20s or early 30s) next to us who were getting pretty loaded off of beer, and it was fun to watch 'cause the wife was very small and petite and it didn't take her much to get drunk. I entertained them with my vast FM knowledge before the show...During "I'm So Afraid," the wife leaned over to me and asked, "what album is this song from?" I said, "the white FM album." She looked very confused, and the rest of the conversation went like this:

Wife: What? Rumours?
Me: No, the album before Rumours. It's called Fleetwood Mac, it came out in 1975.
Wife: What? Bare Trees?
Me: No! I said the white album, it has Landslide on it!
Wife: What? Rumours? I love that album! (for some unknown reason, she then attempts to climb over the chair infront of her and gets tangled up in it...security has to come over and *assist* her)

Needless to say, it was a blast watching her and her husband (plus security) trying to get her untangled from the chair! She didn't seem to know much about the band other than Rumours, so I have no idea where she pulled Bare Trees from...

Too many to count. I have met SO many great people rom here.

The craziest was when the idiot security guard at the last Atlanta concert kicked me off of the front row while I was at Stevie's feet and touching the stage during Rhiannon even though it was okay for me to be there. There is NO WAY she could not have seen it as I am VERY tall. Stevie immediately thereafter told her Security people to tell the arena people NOT to stop people from coming to the stage and that they were ruining the show for everyone. Far fetched I know, but I think she totally saw the sec. guy being a complete ASS to me and put a stop to it. SIIGGGHHHSSSSSSSSSSS SSSWWOOOOOOOONNNSSSSSSSS

Buying the the boys in the band and the backup players a cocktail and speaking to LB in the bar in Atlanta for a little while in Atlanta was about the coolest.

There are others, but those were cool.

Craziest moment for me was when one of Lindsey's Turner model 1 guitars went airbourne in London after I'm So Afraid.. 12-15 feet through the air landing on it's top, bouncing (shedding weight as it went) and gracefully sliding to a rest near a rather speechless Ray Lindsey..... It just happened to be the best version of the song on this tour in my opinion too! Awesome version..
