Greg seems like such a cool guy. I mean, he never speaks, but just watching him play he seems so cool. He's always swaying back and forth too, lol. Dexter has always been my idol since I was like 11 or 12 years old (I'll be 25 in two months) but Greg just seems like a really rad dude to chill with. I met Atom Willard at an Angels and Airwaves show and he said that is still good friends with them, and still hangs out with Greg.

We're discussing the band's schlongs. The hell?

Greg K is one-badass-motherfucken-bass! I'd like to hear him speak more often.

I met Greg twice on this tour and he was such a nice guy. Both times Dexter made fun on him. The first time when I asked Greg to be in the same pic with me and Dexter, Dexter said: What?Do you want Greg in the photo? and the second time in Italy when I asked Greg to sign me the setlist too, Dexter said why do you want Greg to sign you? Really nice times. Everyone loves that guy :)

I was under the impression that people already appreciated Greg K.

I need to make a gif of Greg K doing his funky bass dance.

Aww, why did this thread die? Greg K is very awesome. He's so badass, I made a twitter page dedicated to his badassery: https://twitter.com/WhyGregKsBadass

I brought the sign that's in my sig to the concert in Philly, Noodles pointed me out by name, and when I showed it to Greg and waved to him, he actually smiled and waved back. It was a really amazing experience to actually be acknowledged by a man famous for not looking at the crowd during shows. He was even cool with Noodles giving me his cup at the end of the show.
I've seen him talk in half a dozen videos, and you can tell he's a smart guy that just doesn't open his mouth all the time.
All these comments about his bass dance make me laugh. I just call it "the Greg K."
Also, Noodles said something that made Greg laugh during the Philly concert, and when I saw it I hastily snapped a photo of it. I captured gold on camera!

Greg K seems a bit shy/timid. Why is that though? I find him to be cool and interesting yet fasinatingly intriguing.

Judging from the photos of him on-stage and the ones of him with the band members off-stage, I think maybe he just isn't very comfortable in large crowds. Call me crazy, but he looked kind of nervous at Woodstock and he rarely looks at the crowd at shows. But there are many photos of him smiling and laughing with the guys in the band.
Also, he always leaves immediately after Self Esteem (or whatever song is last in Japan.) At the Philly show, he started backing up to leave before he even played the last note, haha.

I may be duplicating some info I already said in this post.
I'm not sure if you could call it meeting them, but they noticed me at the concert I went to. When they were playing on stage, Dexter looked over at me a few times, so did Noodles, and Todd did once, too. I was so embarrassed that the very first time I opened the sign, it ripped right in half because it got wet from the rain, and Dexter was looking right at me when it happened. When Noodles saw me, he recognized me because I kept telling them I was working on the Greg K sign in my sig via twitter. I was in the front row, and he walked over to me on the stage and pointed at Greg K and shouted to me, "He's right there! He's right there!" I shouted back with a huge smile, "I know!" I thought that was very sweet of him.
And in between songs, Noodles thanked everyone for coming out in the thunderstorm to see them, and pointed me out by name because of the sign I made and mentioned how much I like Greg K. I was so shocked! I looked over at Greg and showed him the sign and waved to him and he smiled at me and waved back. I was like, no way, that never happens! Greg never smiles at people from the stage! Also, I was super-excited when Noodles gave me Greg K's cup at the end of Self Esteem. I actually thought it was Noodles' until he told me on twitter that it was Greg's and that Greg was cool with it! I'm not sure if Greg ever gives his cups away.
If you go to 4:14 in this video, you can see Noodles going to get Greg's cup and he makes sure I get it, and I scream, "THANK YOU!" like a hyperactive moron at 4:26. Also, my screaming "WOOOOOO!" can be heard, rofl. So, I guess you can say I met them, haha.

Haha, you think? I couldn't understand what Noodles said but Greg thought it was funny. I have a photo were he looks 0% creepy and you can actually see that he has green eyes. You don't get to see his eye color in most photos.

Bornlie and I made this one before my power outage, but I insisted on being the one to post it. I searched for the perfect clip, and while watching the video of the whole concert, I noticed this part was just BEGGING to be made into a gif. n,n
I told bornlie the timing to capture and he actually made it for me because I don't have the software. Thanks, buddy!

Thanks a lot! I saw the way the camera was panning around him and was like, it's perfect! XD
I'm probably one of Greg's biggest fans. That's not to take anything away from others. I get so frustrated when I see live videos of their performances and his bass volume or microphone volume is too low and when the camera guys never focus on him.

I remember a few months ago, I was browsing youtube for a certain offspring interview where Greg K talks, and I found this interview by Toazted that has like, a ten minute interview with just him! I was like WHOAAA he speaks more than two words! Haha. Greg K is definitely one of the coolest bass players ever. His signature dance, his silence...he's so badass! :D

Yeah! I recently found that one! And I've seen like 6 other videos where he talks. Some are just one line and in one from 1995 he talks on camera for about a whole minute, then cracks a joke and laughs at himself.
This may be the fangirl in me talking, but I think it's so adorable when he looks nervous on stage. This is exemplified in the Woodstock concert from 1999. Awwww. >,< I got the gif from "Self Esteem" in this concert.
