some disturbing news

Okay, first off i am really trying to get to the bottom of this. I am in no way trying to b offensive. I am quite pissed right now. I am a huge Daughtry fan. My sister and i went and saw them at Riverbend and it was an awesome show. I would definitly go see him again but.... I have some information from one of the security guards and one of the booking agents. Okay he came on a few minutes early cool. Only played about 50 minutes or so. Wish it was longer but hey we will take what we can get. So these people said that Chris was contracted to sing 12 songs-he didn't. He would not allow any one to sit in the front or the seats on the stage, He WOULDN"T do the meet and greet-it wasn't that he couldn't. He supposedly was a real jerk and said thet he was tired of meeting strangers and acting like he liked the. I was like woe, that doesn't even sound like him. But this is supposedly what happened. We need some kind of support on this or something. I really don't want to believe this.

I really have a hard time believing that Chris would act like that. Who knows, we all have our bad days, we can't expect Chris to be perfect all the time. But, without his fans, where would he be? He has said that many times. I met Chris and he was quiet. I mean I was in his face like the whole time, asking him to sign my shirt, my ticket, take a pic. He was always nice to me. I know he went above and beyond any expectation I had. He didn't seem to be rushed, even though it was like 11:30 at night. Everyone else (Brian and Joey) were already done signing autographs way before Chris came out). I don't know what else to say, except maybe it would be better next time, there has to be a next time for you.

Naina beat me to the punch on this one.....when I met him , he was nothing less than gracious, very personable and downright a gentleman. I basically say the same thing to the parents of my second graders during Open House. Don't lose faith, and definitely don't believe what you have heard!

heard the same thing through reliable sources. I took my daughter and two of her friends to Riverfest so that they could see him in concert. Also heard that he called Gadsden a "hick town". He was rude to the people who won the chance to meet him. It wasn't just one security guard that said it. It was other people that heard the comments too. Maybe he had a bad day. There were over 60,000 people that came to Riverfest. Alot of activity going on. He put on a good show. I still like his music. He sung his heart out. He sung his whole CD. I have been around people in the music business for a long time. My brother is in the business and it is hard on a person. No sleep you eat on the run. You miss your family. Sometimes you can't help if your rude. If Chris keeps the music coming from the heart and does't let the fame go to his head he will do great.

Did you get a name for who reported this?

The meet and greet that was planned did happen. DaughtryOfficial could not offer a meet and greet, but a meet and greet did happen.

Hope this helps.

Naina's quote is accurate. Smiling

sorry to hear you were bull sh1tted. :-/

to put too much faith in what you hear....(much less let it piss you off...) ...there's always going to be somebody trying to stir the pot...ignore it & it goes no further....

this might put you in a better mood... go check out the Photos section & see the plethora (see gayle, i'm using big words today, too!!!!!) of pictures of our 5 happy guys with their beloved fans (& their children, in some cases...) you'll be there all night, so get comfy!

what's going on in someones' life on any particular day, something could of happened that we are not privey to right now.....but I don't believe Chris would ever say that about his fans.

This is probably how it really went:

Security guard wants to be big man to his new lady asks Chris and the band for some special request they rightfully but graciously decline. Angry security guard turns around and makes a story up based on some very limited facts to make Chris look bad to save face with the new lady....

In other words sounds like a load of hog wash and I wouldn't believe it unless it happened to me or there was video proof.

Devoted Daughtry Fan in Florida!

based on my experience with chris himself, i would say this is false. there is always more to the story. this may be rooted in some level of truth, but i think there are a lot of blanks to be filled.

i say leave it alone, and wait unitl you get to meet him. then draw your own conclusion.

hope you get to the bottom of this...by meeting him and seeing for yourself how he interacts with his fans. nothing forced or fake in his appreciation that he shows us.
