King Diamond – August 16, 2000

leave a comment »

In 2000, I still had my online music store (Acacia Music) and was still getting into shows free that had bands on Century Media and Metal Blade Records as they were my 2 main wholesale distributors.  Lucky me.  This King Diamond show at famed Jaxx Nightclub was certainly one of them.  Shdaows Fall, Deep and Babylon Whores opened up this show.

After the show I was hanging out behind the venue hoping to meet the King.  I did get to speak with Andy LaRocque for a little bit and had him sign a few CDs for me, including my Death CD that he played on.  He saw that both Chuck Schuldiner had signed it and asked me where I got his signature.  Cool dude.

Someone tapped me on the should and said, “There’s King!”  He was getting in a car, no makeup on and I just put my hand out and said, “King, thanks for all the great music over the years!”  He shook my hand as he was getting in the car and said, “Thanks!  Gotta run, man.  Thanks for coming.”  Perfect.  I was totally happy with that.
