This is a question I'm your biggest Fan

Tell us about your heroes. No. Scratch that.

Tell us about the lengths you've gone to in order to show your devotion to your heroes. Just how big a fan are you?

and we've already heard the fan jokes, thankyou

DJ Shadow
Around 2001 Shadow was on tour to promote his then new album "Private Press".

My much more in the loop friend who was living in Bristol at the time managed to get tickets for us to go see him at Bristol Academy. Which is a rather odd venue but absolutely brilliant.

Anyway, having watched the gig with my mates and been double whammied by Thom Yorke appearing to do "Rabbit in your headlights", we duly trundled out of the gig and headed towards the nearest pub. All of us except me...

I ended up sat on top of a phone box watching the stage door with about a hundred other people waiting for the great(actually very small) Shadow to appear, before running over handing him my ticket and telling him "Organ Donor is my favourite track of all time" not one of the cool tracks like "What hip-hop looks like in '96" (a bit of a mouthful I admit) but, the most played and commercial of all his tunes. Luckily he just said thank you and signed my ticket which I still have and am quite proud of.

I had the chance to see DJ Shadow at the academy in Dec 2006, but it clashed with some very important exams. Shame.

i was at that gig
every time he performed something from Entroducing the crowd loved it, everytime he performed something from the Private Press we waited patiently for him to perform something from Entroducing.

thank god he hadn't made The Outsider or the gig would have been 1/6th worse. (half good vs third good)

I'm very jealous
my mate said that during one of the tunes from Endtroducing, he projected on to the screen "Yes I have been doing this since 1997", or words to that effect.
