3 Things Not To Ask A Rock Star
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Back when I was younger I always dreamed of being a rockstar, but after going to many concerts I realized that I would never be able to live that lifestyle. Plus I can't play an instrument or hold a tune for the life of me. In that case I know if I ever tried I would just embarrass myself.I started going to concerts back when I was about 16 years old and about ten years later I've probably been to well over 50 or so and have met quite a few rockstars and a couple wanna be rockstars believe me there is such thing. In meeting these people I've learned three things not to say while meeting a rockstar.

1. Can I go on your tour bus? I've heard a lot of people ask this question and 95% of the time the band member says no. There are occasions when the band will say yeah go ahead go on there, but most of the time that's when the person is going to party with the band. The tour bus is the bands own personal space in most cases they use it to get away from the crowd.

2. Can you sign my...? Don't ask if they can sign one of your body parts I don't care who you are. A lot of them feel uncomfortable when asked this. Take up something normal for them to sign a cd cover, a shirt, a poster, a ticket stub, etc. Honestly, I don't understand what the point of getting an autograph is if you're just going to go home and wash it off. I guess you could get the autograph tattooed on you.

3. Can I have your...? No you can't have my shirt, my belt, or any free merchandise. What do you think? The band is on tour with not a whole lot of clothes or money to buy them. We as fans need to always buy the merch to support the bands so they can make it through the tour.

Now I'm no rockstar like I stated before, but I've had enough experience at concerts to run into these problems with band members and fans. While the reaction wasn't spoken it was in their actions that I could tell they were uncomfortable or bugged by the fan. But some of the rockstars do as there fans ask because they love the attention. I just think that fans should be respectful towards all the band members even if that member is their idol that they've been wanting to meet forever. And another thing if you don't like a specific band member remember other people do so pleas don't make them hate your city.
