some friends and i were at a burger king adjacent to a truck stop in illinois (sapp bros...peru)...and i just happened to look out the window and noticed someone walking across the parking lot with a rather large black man...and he had huge hair (the other guy...not the black man)...and i just stared and said to my friend (who is also a huge melvins fan) "hey...that guy has hair like king buzzo"....he then looked as well and got all excited and said "that's him! that's fucking king buzzo!"...and i just looked back and him and said "yeah...ok...the melvins...here...that'll happen"....he and another friend of mine took it upon themselves to go over to the truck stop to see for themselves...i just sat there eating my food...and about a minute later they both came running back to the table with a look of joy upon their faces..."it's him!...it's them!" is all they could say...but i just sat there...thinking they were just messing with me..."holy shit! it's them! it's the fucking melvins!"...so i got up and walked over to the truck stop...and on my way in...a guy dressed in what appeared to be western wear (right down to the cowboy hat) opened the door to go in...and i muttered something like "that wasn't buzzo"...and it appeared that the cowboy hat guy was talking to himself...and it kind of sounded like he'd said "yes it is"...so i followed my friends into the truck stop...and got about 10 steps in when i saw the wiry hair pointing out over the top of some shelves...and the closer i got...the more it hit me...yes...that was buzzo...and that was dale crover standing next to him...and the guy that had opened the door for me....that was mark deutrom...and all i could do was keep walking and repeating the words "holy" and "shit"...finally i went back and shook buzzo's hand and made small talk...he and dale were looking at some random crap on the shelves...dale held up a dvd that was a best of from the shows COPS...and he asked us if we'd seen it and said it was awesome....more small talk happened...they were on their way to canada (or maybe it was chicago) to play a show with the band skeleton key...more small talk...buzzo said they were practically broke and asked us if we had any money (and dammit...if i would've had any at the time...it would've all went to them)...then dale and buzzo went about their business and i ran out to the car to find something for them to autograph...funny thing is...i was going to bring my cassette copy of HOUDINI to listen to...but i instead picked up nirvana's BLEACH...so that's what i grabbed for them to sign....which they did (well...mark didn't...he just stood off to the side and still appeared to be mumbling to himself)....dale signed his name...buzzo signed "king buzzo likes kurt cobain"....and then they left

that was a good day

sadly...i gave that signed copy of BLEACH to a friend of mine (the other melvins fan) in order to use his car to go and see a girl that i was with at the time (a girl who didn't even know who the melvins were)

yes...i'm a dumbass...and there isn't a day that goes by that i don't think about that

and yes...i realize my story is all jumbled and rambling

but what good story isn't?

just because i got my arms and legs surgically lengthened doesn't make me a sell-out midget

Brilliant story, Ian!  :lol:  :lol: And what harm has Ian ever done to Fart that he deserves to be harrassed no matter what he writes, even when it's funny and brilliant as fuck? Digger > Nigger and an Fuck > Shut!  :lol:

Night after night, fanboys across the world dream of their "magical moments" with The Melvins.
I can only imagine that night after night, The Melvins laugh and talk shit about those "magical moments".

It rubbed the right person, the wrong way.

BUZZ was drinking JOLT once when we hung out. 8)

BEST STORY. (Hey, ipecac ;))

I always thought it would be the coolest thing to meet Buzzo until I actually did. He's super nice and it was still really cool and all but there were just uncomfortable vibes, like... I'm so geeked out on the Melvins and know details about his personal life (thanks, Melvins BBS) and, lets be honest, he doesn't know/care who I am other than a fannerd.

All i can do is hope that someday Buzz meets that guy that has his face tattooed on him and that it's awkward.

Fuck the Melvins, I wanna meet LeBron and PinkySlim at the same time. And then watch them fight.

It's cool to meet your hero's for the first time.

I went to LA back in 2001, I was at this Cafe and I could've sworn Tom Morello was talking to these black dudes a couple rows back. I never approached. Cool story  huh?

That apostrophe was conceived about 11 hours ago. Too late to abort?
