August 9, 2010 - DAVE MUSTAINE CHECKS IN AFTER FIRST U.S. BOOK-SIGNING APPEARANCE
Well, I got the first official American in-store meet ‘n greet for my autobiography done today at the Book Revue bookstore in Huntington, New York and the group of about 300 Droogies that were there were fantastic.
Of course there were the 'usuals' there that tried to be "special" but the bookstore took care of things so that it would be cool for EVERYBODY and so we could take care of EVERYBODY.
I just gotta laugh though, watching these bookworms get all bowed up, especially when the 'usuals' are trying to be all "rebellious" and but I guess even a library has one or two dickweeds to deal with over the course of time.
I really can't get over how much I enjoyed myself today doing all of the press and promotion around this book. I had just a great, great day today. I look forward to the signing tomorrow again, and if you didn't get a chance to meet me earlier today there in Long Island, please come to the in-store tomorrow.
We’re close enough now with the shows being almost 'city by city' with this area out here that we’re playing, if you don’t see me at one of the in-stores you can certainly come a little bit farther and see me at the next one.
I would like to make something really easy to understand too. I will gladly sign any of your records, photos, guitars, and stuff like that in the appropriate places. But this is for my autobiography and the bookstore, it’s their rules, and that’s just how it is.
If you want to meet and hang out; there are several ways to do this. You can do stuff through the fan club with the meet ‘n greets; and if you want a deeper experience than that, you can certainly sign up for "I Love All Access" which is the ultimate fan experience.
We've got something for everybody here at Megadeth.com, just try and be understanding and we’ll accommodate you in any way we can.
NOTE: If you come up to me with a guitar pick guard for me to sign for a Stratocaster, (a Fender guitar style or shape) and WE ALL KNOW by now that I play only Dean VMNT's and Zero's, I am going to respectfully decline.
For me, for now, that’s it.
