I live in south FL and this past weekend was what The Stage (in Miami) called, "Stones Throw Weekend":
- 4/25 Peanut Butter Wolf performed a 3-hour long DJ set
- 4/26 Dam-Funk performed the following day
Although I wasn't able to make it to the DF show I did have the pleasure of meeting PBW, having him sign he and Charizma's Big Shots, take a quick photo with him, and ask him a couple of questions. The most impactful comments of his came when I asked him if he had any advice for myself as a music business student. He advised to simply stay on course with [your] aspirations. He said that before his ventures became lucrative and nationally/ internationally renown as they are today, he encountered some opposition from family and friends, but he remained persistent. These are really simple and otherwise cliché words but the fact that they came directly from PBW adds that much more weight to them...for me at least.
I thought some of you could appreciate this brief story so I shared it. Anyways, share your encounters with some of the artists (celebrities if you will) that you've had throughout your life on this post, pictures of signed phonorecords you've gotten, and photos you've taken of artists.
