Anyone ever get backstage passes for any big concert? How did you happen to land them? I once had backstage passes offered to me for a White Zombie concert. I never availed myself of the courtesy, but if those had been passes for Pink Floyd, Rush, or Peter Gabriel I would probably have jumped at the opportunity.
So what goes on if one has a backstage pass - does one really get an opportunity to meet the band? Wild booze orgies? In depth discussion about their latest album?.......Or is it more along the line of sweaty, exhausted performers troop off stage and are summarily trotted past a line of "VIP's"? (manager: 'guys, this is Howard Kowsnowski and his father is the one providing your limo tonight'. Barely polite head nods and grunts of acknowlegement ensue as performers without slowing down proceed directly to dressing rooms to change as they have a plane to catch in two hours....)
