St. Louis twitter and Facebook exploded shortly after lunchtime when Vintage Vinyl dropped the news that Wayne Coyne (the Flaming Lips) would be appearing to meet and greet fans, with plenty of Gummy Skulls and copies of their 12″ collaboration with Neon Indian.
I totally get why fans love Wayne, who signed albums, posed for pictures and engaged visitors in conversations all with a huge smile and no sense of hurry. And even with the line moving at a slower pace because of that, he assured the crowd that he’d stick around however long it took to get everyone’s things signed. Possibly one of the friendliest musicians I’ve ever met.
Hey look Eleven Magazine!
So impressed with Jason Stoff’s (Encor.es) picture that he wanted to snap a picture of it for himself!
The prized item of the afternoon. A huge (edible) Gummy skull with a USB drive in the center containing 4 Flaming Lips songs.
$150. Very limited. Congrats to those who picked it up. If you got one, would you eat it?
I picked up the 12″ collaboration with Neon Indian. Wayne dinosaur says thanks.
