One of the cool things about Roo for me has been the artist signings. I don't care about the autograph, but just being able to meet your favorite musician is pretty cool! One of the most memorable for me was GWAR last year. From my memory, they never say who will be doing signings until you read it in the guide book.
Now for my question for current volunteers. I assume as part of your volunteer packet upon arrival that you get a guide book. Could you post who will be doing artist signings this year? Alice Cooper is my dad's favorite musician and I would love to get his record signed for Father's Day as well as meet some other musicians.
For fun, here are the artist signings from the past 3 years (I didn't get a book my first year in 2008 due to the one a car minimum :/)
