I’ve met him twice. First time he talked baseball and shit with me for like 10 mins, second time he rolled his eyes and sighed out loud when I saw him on the street in Charlotte and asked for a picture on my birthday.

First time he was fairly new to the band. Second time he’d been a member of the band for like 10 years. He thinks he’s a big deal now.

Or he, like Carter, might be tired of doing this bullshit for decade(s).

I gotta be honest, hearing all of these things about Carter is bumming be out a bit. All these year I've always seen his big smile, blowing bubbles while playing, and seen his attitude and demeanor in various interviews/videos, and thought, "Man, Carter seems like a great guy. It'd be awesome if I ever had the opportunity to meet him." Since I'm a drummer, he's been my musical idol since I was a sophomore in high school (roughly 2000 or so). I realize a lot of this is hearsay, however, to find out that someone you've looked up to might not be the kind of person you imagined him to be, it's a little bit of a letdown.

I've met all of the original 5 members minus Dave, and to me, Carter was the nicest of the 4. I had a cool chat with him, he took a picture with me. This was back in 2002, so maybe things have changed?

The things is AParker has gone out of his way to get equipment for his rig and is on a first name basis with his tech and has wanted to meet Carter for literally years. I don't know the guy and I average less than one post a day and I know that. It's kind of a different scenario than a random drunk person wanting to sweat on his new jersey for a Boyd style hug. I'd bet he'd even settle for a fist bump so as to avoid sullying a fresh set of gloves. Give the guy a second of your time while he's standing 10 feet from the kit back stage. sheesh.

If Adam had juicy titties and ass Carter would meet him, no doubt. Adam, you need to bring along a hottie and pull the old bait and switch on him!

A quick hello, thanks for being such an inspiration and leaving me that voicemail you probably don't remember is all. Maybe show him my kit and get a picture. All of that amounts to a minute or less. Ah well. It is what it is lol

Seems meeting him outside of a show is the way to go, but I'm not one to stalk the band at hotels, etc.

You know how sometimes when you try try try it never happens and then when you least expect it it does?? That's where you are, now that you are "over it" it's going to happen for you and it will prob be cooler because you will not know it's going to happen
Yeah, Adam, you're going to bump into him at breakfast one day during the offseason. That thread will be epic and I look forward to it.

Apparently they're flying in to Rogers later than normal and have soundcheck plus rehearsals backstage.

Didn't surprise me really as I didn't figure it would happen, but man with your management even attempting, it just really sets a bad look to not take 2 minutes or less to say hi to one of your biggest fans. Maybe scheduling is tight, but geeze.

Ah well. No worries. Love the guys playing and love that drumset. I'm fortunate enough to know Henry and he's extremely generous. Will probably be at the kit before the show. Ready to hear how the band is progressing!
No chance Carter is more “pressed for time” than Henry, who constantly makes time for you, despite everything he needs to do before a show.

Does Henry have to literally RUN TO THE BUSES after the show?


Didn't think so....

Move on then? They’ll be fine. He’s been big timing old friends for a few years now too.

Carter has been a multi-zillionaire for 1000 years and trust me, playing the drums is just a job to him now -- as any of our jobs are. All of these guys consider it a job. When they get on stage, their spirits may lift slightly.. but at the end of the day guys, they consider it going to work just as we all do.

They've been playing the same. songs. for 30. years.

Everyone on the planet is a dickhead. I'm sure Dave can be a dick. I'm sure Carter can be a dick. They're just really, really rich human beings with a talent for a specific instrument.

Let's not blow it out of proportion here.

Say what you want about Stefan, but I ran into him on the street and he was the nicest guy.

I believe it.

We all poke fun at him, but he's a terrific player. I finally listened to that Lillywhite interview and he spoke very highly about Stefan's professionalism and work ethic in the studio. He brings it live every night, too. His goofy outfits/wardrobes and weird Tweeting is what it is, but he's done his job very well since day one.

Stefan is the luckiest bass player in history. Most replaceable part of a super successful band and never ever had to work a real job. Now he doesn't even really need to participate in coming up with new content but rather just come in as a studio backing musician a couple times every six years in between snowboarding, photography, and stroking Democrats.
