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.

What can it possibly hurt? Get 'em and use it as an ice breaker to some conversation. This isn't "fanboy-ism" by any measure mate. Hand him his sticks and use it as an opportunity to network a little. I'm sure he'll appriciate the gesture, I know I would.
