Friendly Encounters: Adam Clayton and Erin Morris

Friendly Encounters is a weekly series featuring my friends who have met celebrities.

I don't know anyone who has seen more concerts or driven more miles to those concerts than Erin Morris.  In between those trips, she also has carved a niche on the Chicago indy wrestling scene.
I barely understand how she manages to go on all of those trips to see her favorite bands, but even more mysterious is how she meets so many of the musicians.  She is indeed a woman of mystery.
I first saw Erin when she was managing a wrestler at a Chicago wrestling event.  I don't even remember which event or who she managed.  Erin popped back on my radar at Resistance Pro (where else?), where she started as a manager.  She has since become the musical maestro (DJ E?).
Back to the musical passion, while her musical interests are pretty much not the same as mine, I do admire her dedication and ability to go to so many places and meet so many musicians.  Below is just one example.  She got a selfie (I can't even do selfies) with U2 bass guitarist Adam Clayton.
The other interesting thing with Erin's pictures is that the musicians always look happy.  I'd think most would be rushed and would want to get away from the throngs of fans wanting pictures and autographs.  Somehow Erin seems to bring out the smiles in them.
I can't get you pictures with many (any?) musicians, but I can get you in a picture with Erin.  Just come to any RPro wrestling show and tell her I sent you.  (Oh, she will love that.).
