Who is Michael Salkind and why is he hunting down rock stars?

It’s not so much his ability to juggle identities: Colorado Springs criminal defense attorney, husband and father, drummer in the alt-rock duo Wild Hares, whose originals include “Grandma Used to Sleep with Chuck Berry” and “Rock and Roll Will Never Die (But We Will).”

Nor is it the fact that, at the age of 55, the former KRCC deejay is still a hardcore music junkie, one
who attends anywhere from two to four shows a week, regularly driving his black Acura MDX with the “OLD 97S” license plates up to Denver to catch sets by the likes of indie-rock upstarts Twin Peaks and septuagenarian avant-funk icon James Blood Ulmer.

No, it’s what he actually DOES at those shows that’s cause for my concern. It’s the stalking, the obsessive hunt for autographs and pictures with musicians.
