Here's a few folks I've had the pleasure of meeting ...
Wish I could say I recorded this rock legend, but I didn't. However, he was kind enough to pose for a photo, sign an autograph, shake hands and exchange a few pleasentries .....
Here he is ... Jack Bruce ... bassist for the band 'Cream' (Jack Bruce, Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker).

Hey, that's Dick Dale (left), king of the surf guitars, hanging onto Dave Williams (owner of 2nd Floor Recording). Looks like they're having some fun.
Remember 'Mizirlou' from Pulp Fiction ..... well, that was Dick Dale on the guitar !!! And he still rocks like crazy !!!
Dave & Robby Kreiger
I know this picture looks fake, but it's the real deal. It was taken with a cell phone and I was a bit closer than the other guy who was standing in front of a black backdrop. So who is he? Well, that's me (on the left), and the other guy ... that's the legendary guitarist from The Doors, Robby Krieger.
He grabbed a Gibson guitar and right there in front of about 100 people played his famous guitar licks from the Doors song "Love Me Two Times", then autographed a picture (on my wall at home), and let us take this snapshot with a cell phone (thanks Marco).
Dave & Gene Simmons
OK ... I know this picture is funny, but I'm posting it anyway.
In the middle of the picture is Gene Simmons (KISS). It was almost impossible to get close to him, so I walked around the ouside of the NAMM booth and my buddy Martin took this picture while I stood in the background, looking through the metal truss (the one holding the booth upright).
I later got within about 3 feet of Gene, but couldn't get a picture with him. Security was tight. He was having a good time at the show.
Dave & Kerry King - Slayer
Hey, there I am getting an autograph from Slayer guitarist, Kerry King.
