Default Meeting pop stars online

I've met a few stars on line and had a few brief bit's of conversation with them. Or at least they've replied to a post.
The most recent just now is Andy Partridge from XTC.
I posted that there was a book about the band on Amazon selling for 175 and wondered if anyone could say why it was so expensive.
He just posted.
'It's ****, I read it.'

A few months ago on Talking heads fan site. I said I liked the song ONce in a lifetime esp. Eno's keyboards and Chris Frantz responded 'The keyboards on "Once In A lifetime" are played by Jerry, not Eno. Who told you otherwise?'

Bobby Calabrese, the guitarist for the Horror Punk band, Calabrese talked to me about the show "Dexter" on facebook just the other day. He's not a "pop star", but he sure is popular amongst the Horror Punk fans.

I've conversed with American Idol contestant Didi Benami online before, and she's tweeted me quite a few times.

Also, Amanda Palmer from The Dresden Dolls, who's really nice - and her boyfriend, writer Neil Gaiman tweeted me once. I tweeted him to embrace the tambourine as his calling in life, and he tweeted me with, "Alas, the glory I would garner as a tambourinist would distract me from my true path."

Dave Wyndorf, the lead singer from Monster Magnet used to be really active on his forum back in the day, and I was also active, so he and I talked quite a lot on there, about any number of things really.

My main thrill was a 3 month internet correspondence with Brian May from Queen. He responded to a lot of my letters in his "soapbox", and actually emailed me for a little while. Probably the most exciting time of my life.

Just curious, is your name pronounced "Wired" or "Werd"?

Anyway, I saw Zach and Cody from that Disney Channel show while I was skiing. They're not popstars, but I guess that's the closest I've ever come to any celebrity-entertainer-type.

Link pl0x, I keep tabs on Andy where I can. But I definitely don't have a shrine to him in my basement or have plans to kidnap him. Definitely not.

Someone from God Is An Astronaut answered one of my questions on their Facebook. I was asking/telling them to come to the United States and they responded: "We will be in the States in the coming months, please be patient." I was stoked.

Another time, Rosi Golan made a status update asking all the ladies what kind of snacks they had at sleepovers. I made a joke and she addressed me and said I made her lol. I actually met her a couple of weeks prior.

Those are my stories of online communications with artists.

I spent the night at Michael Jackson's house once as a kid, that was a lot of fun.
