I did the meet and greet a couple years and I didn't think $100 was bad. They signed shit, and we got pictures, we saw sound check, and we all got a free shirt.
at Warped Tour in like '08 or whatever, there was a huge meet and greet line for Modlife members at the Angels and Airwaves tent. then, there was a separate line at the tent to just buy merch, which had no one in it. Tom was sitting right by the merch, so i went up since no one was there and talked to him for a second, and he helped me pick out a shirt to buy. so i met Tom for free while everyone else met him for 100 bucks, or whatever it is.
i've met the band twice, for free both times. so paying 100 bucks to meet them and get a shirt.... it's a ripoff. having to pay to meet any band is retarded. period.
