Default BACK STAGE @ M.E.N. Manchester meeting competition winners

Greetings comrades...you may not be aware of the fact that before and after almost every gig we have to sign literally hundreds of programs, T shirts (always the hardest thing to sign) flyers, old crisp packets and photographs of us from 30 years ago...THEN do meet 'n' greets...which means meeting people who have won competitions set up by newspapers, radio stations and the record company etc...as well as business associates and their partners, people from the music industry...its never quiet backstage, there is always something to do and there is always a huge list of MUST DO's..you'd think we didn't have to go on stage in million degree heat and play for 2 hours and that we were professional meeter's n greeters. Despite it all we get to meet some very nice people. Heres an example of just one of the meet n greet's from Saturday in Manchester, there were of course another 10 of these all specially arranged by someone from our label who was sitting at home watching TV with their feet up sipping on a cold one....
