    Last saturday there was a festival in Seoul. Some of you may know Seo Taiji.... hes a Korean rocker and he set up the shows.

    My friend is a rock radio show host and got me tickets and hired me as his "staff photographer" this means i got to go back stage and further more...hang out with the bands and watch the show on the side stage.

    I got to see all of Wes's guitars, Robin Finck's guitars. I got to see their whole rigs. I met and hung out mostly with the Limp Bizkit guys, they were super friendly and accommodating in letting me take pictures on stage behind John Otto and Lethal.

    Let me just say that i am a Limp Bizkit fan....at all.

    Their set was insanely good. Fred Durst was a really really nice guy, Wes lived up to all my expectations. We got to talk about his yamaha custom, Black Light Burns, the new LB album, he like my tattoo etc..
    Lethal and Sam were a bit more aloof, but Otto was cool as shit and chatted with us for a while.

    LB played and during lulls Fred would come over and hang out with me and tell me how fucking hot it was or how he thinks Wes is a bit about his guitar shorting out. Wes asked me to tell him things in korean to yell to the crowd. I mean i was literally arms distance away from everything. Trent came out with his insanely hot girlfriend/Fiancee and watched LB play "faith" which was quite awesome.

    LB was done and NIN was next. Trent was no where to be seen during this. I was surprised at how minimal the set up was for NIN. Robin Finck was nice enough to let me stand near his stuff and get some shots. They crew overall for NIN was a bit more dicky and didnt really like having me around. I took the hint and backed off after getting what i needed for the shoot.

    I went to stage left, where everyone else was standing, and i was rubbing elbows with everyone from , Keane, Boom Boom Satellites, LB and some of the Korean groups. We all watched NIN together commenting on how nasty everything sounded. The set list was pretty eclectic and he played at least 2-3 songs from every album. He also announced this was the last time NIN would play in Asia....so sad. I eventually ended next to Wes (!) and shared some smiles when we sang along to "head like a hole" and "Survivalism".

    Sadly trent was pretty well guarded and we didnt get to hang out at all. BUT after the show, we me them all up at their hotel lobby and got to sit in their circle of roadies , NIN (sans TR) and LB (sans Fred). They asked us about Korea and all that and we got to ask them stuff too. Like how fucking terrible Marilyn Manson was when Wes played with him in Korea last year.

    It was really cool to hear them just dropping names of friends like "yeah Howerdel.....and Lohner was like....and i think at Mansons halloween thing we...." all quite surreal.

    That following monday LB played again and my Radio show host friend went and took them all out for beers at a bar....he got to jam with Otto and Wes....i had to work. so jealous.


    It was an awesome experience and it was really cool to meet Wes, who had become a big influence on how i play guitar.

    Jealousy... RISING... :scream: Pics or it didn't happen :squint::lol:

    EDIT: Also, i have to say im not really surprised that Trent is a bit of a cunt... i mean, the amount of coke that man must have done, and he has influenced an entire generation of musicians... it's not really a surprise to me :lol:

    You didn't happen to notice if he had his Yamaha seven-string with the OFR, did you? I've always wondered about that one...

    he didnt! i was looking for it. i even asked the tech about it. He did use it with BLB but he only brought the basics on this string of tour dates.

    his Rockverbs sounded amazing btw

    ive seen one picture of it, looks hot.

    he had a white and black version of his yamaha and one quilted natural that looked amazing.
