The Imperials in Tupelo - Aug 2007
Tonight we had the banquet for all the fans who went with Arena Travel to Tupelo/Memphis. They had a surprise for us that we didn't expect. The Imperials sang on stage for us. I really enjoyed their performance and afterwards they had an autograph session, and you could buy CD's and photos.
I was really excited to think I could meet them in person, but after I bought their CD and photo, which cost me $20. I then asked them if I could have a photo taken with them, and this is when I saw their true colours. You could tell that they didn't want to be bothered, I practically had to beg them for a photo, they really didn't want to do it, all they seemed to be interested in was getting my money off me. Because they wouldn't be paid for the photo that I wanted, they acted like they were really someone and I just said to myself - If Elvis was looking down at them he would be disgusted because he wasn't like that.
It has changed my opinion of them, I don't even want to look at them anymore. It was alright when you were paying them, but they didn't want to know when you wanted your own photo taken with them. This is just my experience with them and it's something I'll not forget in a hurry :angry:
