Asking a musician for bandmate's addresses??

Post by Isaiah »

I was going to write to Kat Bjelland, from the band Babes In Toyland. I was wondering, would it be rude to politely ask in an LOR if she could enclose the address of her former bandmates? I don't want to sound rude with my request to her, since she is a great woman and a great musician, I just want to own the autographs of her former band members Lori Barbero, Maureen Herman and Michelle Leon. Should I ask her, since the addresses are not in the database? Thank you in advance.

The vast majority of celebs would consider it rude to ask them for another celeb's address. You are not likely to get a favorable response that way, and might even ruin your chances of getting a success from that individual.

^ agreed. Especially if they are former bandmates (they are unlikely to be in contact).

Actually I don't see anything wrong with that. So long as all the members are still on good terms with each other, if they broke up because of a fight or something I wouldn't attmept it. I've written to some celebs and have politely asked if they could have so & so could sign my photo (For example my Jake Thomas success where I sent photos of his parents and they kindly signed those for me).

You could mention something along the lines to Kat if she happens to have fanmail addresses for the other band members, if she could enclose them along with her response. Who knows, Kat might even have old signed photos of the whole band still laying around that she can send you. {up}
