In my humble opinion, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rob Thomas[/lastfm] is a phenomenal choice for Artist of the Day. Ever since [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Matchbox Twenty[/lastfm] burst onto the scene in 1996, I have been a huge HUGE fan of theirs!
The very first time I saw them live, the band was doing an MTV special at the Hammerstein Ballroom for their TV series “Live At The 10 Spot.” I had the good fortune of meeting the whole band after that performance, along with a group of other fans. The guys couldn’t have been nicer to us; taking photos, answering questions and signing autographs!
A couple of years later, I was working at the Circuit City in Union Square when Rob came in to do some shopping. Being a huge fan (and going off of my previous experience), I approached him cautiously and told him what a huge fan I was of the band and how much I appreciated their music. Rob was absolutely fantastic and spent a good amount of time talking to me about music and the band. In turn, I helped him out as well: he had just moved to New York City and left his CD collection at a friends house. Instead of waiting for the CD’s to be shipped to him, he decided to go out and re-buy some of his collection!!!
