After the Indianapolis show on the Hendrix tour, I got the wonderful pleasure of meeting Steve. Talk about the thrill of a lifetime. I have looked up to him and idolized him for so many years, getting to tell him that was amazing. To be able to shake his hand and tell him that his music is transcendental for me, was just the coolest thing imaginable. I had to show him my VAI tattoo and he thought it was awesome. He signed his name under it and I drove the 2hours home and had my tattoo artist permanently ink it onto my back. Unbelievable.
I have met so many celebrities, I have many friends that are huge stars, but NOBODY has made me feel as excited as I was the night I met Steve. He was everything I imagined and more. Just a really nice, down to earth guy who creates magic when he picks up a guitar! he is truly wonderful and I am so proud to be a fan of his and to be able to appreciate the immense talent and charisma he has. I will cherish this tattoo and my time with him forever.
