Resolved Question: How can I be less shy
I want to meet with Mark Knopfler and take a picture with him, because I really like him as a guitarist, how can I do that, I am so shy. :)
Also, is he going to be friendly like Pearl Jam or is he going to be more "serious" like "the Zombies"?
They let me take pix of them, but then they left pretty quick, is Mark Knopfler a cool guy from live? Is he nice and friendly? lol.
How can I ask him for a picture :D @OU but how did Ted meet Mark?
