Recently saw a drummer I admire greatly, during a solo my wife noticed one of the tips of a stick fly off into the sunset. She thought it'd be a good idea to buy him a pair of sticks as a thank you for an enjoyable show. He appears to like his space and I'm usually hesitant to talk to other musicians mostly because I'm shy. Would this be a presumptious thing to do? I did ask him what types of sticks he used but I think it came off as more of a 'so I can emulate you' deal rather than its intended purpose. :P
Not sure if there's a desire for a line between a fan and a musician, I've heard all sides of the story.
