I love you guys, and no, I'm not going to act like a journalist.

this is awesome. enjoy and can't wait to hear how it goes.

Wow! Please enjoy and report back. Very jealous. I would imagine it's almost easier to meet him virtually than in person... You might get the chance at real words coming out as opposed to just uhhhhh I love your music...

This is basically what happened when I met him. Completely froze up. :lol

Yeah I ran into him before a show and basically just wound up saying hi and thank you. He was nice. I didn't ask any questions or for a photo or anything.

So what’s the word?

We are all waiting with bated breath. If the OP can upload the conversation anywhere, that would be fantastic.

Would be pretty epic if the OP never returned and told us how it went

Haha. They’re prob just still talking. Sleepover buddies.

Apologies for the radio silence! 30 minutes is a long time (although I blinked and it was over), and I wanted to process it a bit before putting pen to paper (err, fingers to keyboard). Also, I'm doing some research to make sure I'm not leaking anything about the new album (yes, it came up unprompted). I will also err on the side of caution if my intuition leads me to believe there are some things that should stay on the call (eg. family stuff etc.).

Here's a quick lil' something so I'm not being a total :devil

Once we settled in (about 10 mins in) I asked him about his songwriting process for some earlier songs (thank you to whoever recommended this!). He talked about the origins of I'll Back You Up (some new stuff I hadn't heard), Ants Marching (a story I had never heard, which was one of the coolest moments), Satellite (things I hadn't heard), along with some songwriting concepts that he's used quite a bit. My jaw nearly hit the floor when he reached for his guitar to play through some of the things he was talking about :eek

Alrighty then, that should tide you over and I'll get the full write up out Monday night!

P.S. My instinct is being on the call will FAR exceed the experience of reading about it (obvs), so please keep expectations low. The shining light was of course my mother's presence, and Dave's genuine approach, candor, and realness. It kind of floored me, like there was this element of trust and he was incredibly forthcoming. So if expanding on anything I said above might violate that, please let me know (hi mods :thumbsup).

That's so cool, @Seanieb!! Thanks for sharing a few tidbits with us. I'm glad you got to experience that and I'm thrilled for you that it exceeded your expectations. Looking forward to hearing whatever else you want to share with us, especially anything Dave shared about new music coming soon, but thanks for posting a quick recap here already - that was thoughtful of ya'! :thumbsup

Well, I don't think you would be violating any of our rules that I know of if you share the content of the call. You may violate the terms you agreed to when you won it with your donation, but that's between you and the charity/dmb management.

I hope you recorded it for yourself, though if you did, I probably wouldn't post that. Again though, that's up to you.


I'm really happy for you that it was a great experience.

Very cool experience. I always tell friends, and they learned, just say hi and let him talk :). He's incredibly honest, open, and friendly.

Did he release the transcript? I heard it was a perfect call, many people are saying.

Yes many people that were there are saying it was a perfect call. The setlist was off the hook too.

Still no update?! Would love to hear if Dave shared any new album news.
