Discussion in 'Opeth (Archived)' started by Blackwater Demon, May 21, 2008.
I have on myspace twice and have recently contacted Mikeal but nothing yet. I hope Mikeal responds.
Mikael posts here under his real name. I've never had a direct conversation with any of the band members.
Man, how I would like to though...
Anyone want to sell me Mikael's cell #? LOL
that would be awesome. The first time I talked to them I asked if Pink Floyd had any influence on "My Arms Your Hearse" and they told me they did. The 2nd time my wife wanted me to see if there was any way we could meet them at Prog. Nation since DT was doing a meet and greet and they told me to talk to Mikeal.
NEVER TALKED TO OPETH BEFORE EVER.
Mikael has responded to a couple of my myspace messages.
Gotta say they're all nice guys. Me and my housemate have met them multiple times and hung out.
I don't feel the need for Opeth to be aware of my existence.
I've talked to Per, Mendez & Axe, and yelled back and forth with Mikael at a gig. But seriously they're just dudes, dudes.
No I haven't..
My mom says I shouldn't talk to strangers..
I talked to them at With Full Force 2006 (signing session).
Very nice guys, especially Peter and Mikael seemed to enjoy the presence of their fans.
A friend of mine asked Mike, if he will ever work with Bloodbath again and he said "Maybe..."
I just told Mike, that Still Life and Deliverance are the greatest albums in my opinion and we did little smalltalk.
But in fact, it was a shit day for them, because they lost some of their gear on the road. They had to borrow amps and cymbals from Motörhead!
I talked to Lopez the second time they came down to Melbourne. He told me how he could never get used to having so many fans crowding around him.
Officials at the airport had told him to put his shirt on.
He also apparently tried to get a tattoo on his forearm and for some reason they didn't let him. I'm a little confused, as I know lots of people here who've got tats on their forearm. But whatever...I'm glad I talked to him, as it's kinda hard to these days!
Talked to them (8 times)every show but the last one...Gigantour 2. The funniest, was when Lopez missed the first few shows because of illness back on the Deliverance tour. I went to the venue, to get 3 tickets for converted Opeth fans for that night's show. I walk around the corner to go back to my truck, and Lopez is sitting on the curb next to the street. I think it was only the second show since his return, so I asked if things were better. He smiled, and put his arm around his girl, and said "Oh yes, much better now!" I remember telling him that Dave Vincent, and a few other guys of his caliber would more and likely be at the show that night. Even though Mendez at the time, was the most quiet member, I think Lopez tended to be the most introverted. I think in the past, Mendez's english to some, was a little harder to understand, but he usually along with Peter was the most approachable. Every time I saw them, I used to always thank Peter for playing at the Brass Mug(Tampa)the first time they came(Blackwater Park tour) to Florida. It has to be the smallest venue ever, to have national acts play there, but Mike knew of it.
I just got areply from Mike on myspace about us meeting them. He said they hang out at their bus after their set so hopefully we can meet them afterall.
Hah, good luck. I bet their bus is... surrounded.
