Also I see the term "rock star" is being bandied about rather loosely these days.

i wonder if ppl are gunna break out the tshirts and posters and ask for autographs.

i think you should rest assure that your man bag is prolly cooler then his. His prolly gets more use but yours matches.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

Cool, always liked Queensryche. Look forward to meeting him.

Hmm, should bring a guitar and amp for him to jam on at lunch?

you should bring it for YOU to jam on, and if he asks to play say something really elitist like, "You may have sold crappy albums but at the track I am king and you will listen to my cover tunes of bands way better than yours!!!!".

Does being a rock start get you an automatic pass to the advanced group?

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
