In most shows I've been a part of you need to have your station stuff to be autopraphed ready and easy to do for them before the show. JMC made sure we unbundled our t-shirts so he could sign right on our logo and he signed both the cd case and inner sleeve for our cd giveaways. That may not sound like a big thing but it's rare that the stars will take the time to do it right.
Then he hung out with the station staff in the halls backstage and asked more questions about us than we did about him. JMC will always be a favorite of mine simply for the respect he shows to the people who are helping his career.
A sad video...and for some reason it didn't seem to get the play it should have.
He's another underrated singer and I am glad to see that he's very fan-friendly. Great story.
