    Faris, congrats on your achievement of seeing TWO shows, and I am very happy that you were able to meet the DT guys and get your gear autographed safe and sound. I think it's really cool that you'll always have something special to remember them by. You are very blessed to have such good friends to help you as well.

    Interestingly enough, we must be on some kind of DT wavelength because since my last post I discovered that Dream Theater will be in Chicago on Nov 3 and I went all out for the meet and greet as well. I figure I may have mere seconds to ask a question to the guys (your description pretty much is what I guessed), so I am debating on what I even want to ask, if anything.

    I have also decided that I am going to forgo taking any guitar parts to sign for various reasons - basically, none of my friends will go with me (yeah thanks guys, I go to all your stuff) - and just ask them to sign a CD Sleeve or something else very small that will be easy to pocket.

    I'll report back after the show. I just hope I can survive my day job in between now and then!

    Thanks man! Yeah I have the best of friends all over the country. Help doesn't come without a little $$$ though but my God was it worth it.

    First of all Congratulations! Best decision of my life.

    Second. Let me give you a couple of things you can try to make the meet & greet more memorable. These things I thought about after the meet which I kind of regret not trying:

    1. If you're bringing your guitar ask the guys if you can bring your guitar in the photoshoot.

    2. Before taking the photo try asking the guys to do a pose of your preference like fists up or something. All of the meet photos look more or less the same.

    3. Don't hesitate to stop a couple more seconds for each members to talk to them. The line was fast during my meet so everyone only talked while signing & then immediately move on to the next guy.

    I actually asked JR how was Malaysia but he was busy talking to MM and didn't hear me. So make sure you get their attention first!

    You're paying a huge amount for such small time so make it stand out from the others. Trust me it's worth it to try stuff there if it works out. Having JP write on my guitar puts a smile on my face everytime I look back at the meet.

    Aww too bad man. I hope something works out for you. But you can try though bringing something that stands out if you dont bring your guitar. Something huge but easy to carry like a flag or a poster or a XXXXL shirt with a DT logo that you can frame later. Try to think of something while surviving now until the show!

    P/s: Survey the venue for any lockers you can use to store your stuff. You'll get a goodie bag so might as well bring something a bit bigger than your pockets.

    I wish all the best for you.

    Photo update!

    I got my guitar back yesterday and it was in perfect shape (Thanks buddy!)

    So yeah what SM wrote to JP, JP wrote to me backplate was a special gift Pete Dubaldo gave me when I bought the guitar from him.

    Hi.

    I'm the creator of the "day on the tour" video, and I'm glad it was of help to you. That was why I created it in the first place because I saw people having some odd expectations of what the meet and greet could be. Especially the "no handshake" rule can throw people off a bit, but germs and stuff is in abundance on tour

    I had my sig on my backplate, but I forgot to cure it with something so it'd set, so I've already rubbed it off. Oh well. Next time I meet JP, I guess

    Either get a clear spray paint and coat the entire backplate with it - or get some film to cover it up. Both will work fine.

    Most importantly, get another back plate so the signed one can sit on a shelf.

    But, even sitting there, Sharpie permanent marker fades over time...
