Rock Historian Posted May 6, 2012 Share Posted May 6, 2012 It would have been more appropriate if the guy would have asked for a picture instead of filming him for 4 or 5 minutes...Although unless you are in that position it's hard to say what you would do, but it all comes down to what you think is right, respectful and what your morals are. Personally, I would have had the courage to introduce/excuse myself politely and ask if it would be too much trouble to take a pic and maybe add in something about him being an idol of mine and an influence musically, etc. But, I may not even have done that. I dunno. I could see the guy filming him for a few seconds just to get it on tape, but the longer the vid went on-I felt embarraseed just watching it. Some people don't see anything wrong with that, but it was a bit overboard. Many years ago we went to DisneyWorld (back in 2000 or 2002) We spent one full day at a place called Discovery Cove where you swim with Dolphins and snorkle inside caves, etc. Was a great time... Anyway,before you are allowed to "meet" the dolphins they give you a tutorial on the "do's and don'ts" of your interaction with them. My brother was sitting next to me, and he whispers ....."Dude, is that Dee Snider"?... Sure enough , it was! He was with his family (wife and several blonde headed kids) I didn't even bother asking him for a picture because the guy was enjoying time with his family. If he would have been alone, I may have considered differently. Even though that was a once in a lifetime chance to meet em', I felt it would be a little unnecessary to start a conversation, picture, etc. under those circumstances. I'm sure he wouldn't have minded, but I respected him enough to just act as if he was not a "rock star" - just a normal guy....That's how I left it. Later that day, I saw him swimming with a dolphin...pretty funny , yet cool. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
