Well…I waited 3 years for this band to come around and I finally got to see them on Tuesday. At the Crofoot in Pontiac. The show was incredible and the guys rocked their asses off. Of course I stalked the tour bus afterwards and got autographs and hugs from a few of the band members. They hooked up with Toryn Green from the band Fuel to do vocals on a few of their songs. He did a really great job and is a really nice and down to earth guy.
Here’s one of my vids from the show of the guys doing a cover of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters”, there’s a few more on my You Tube page.
I got a really good shot of Perttu’s broken index finger. The last time he toured he broke the same one on the other hand! Yes, He played cello with a broken finger! Now that’s hard core.
Here’s Mikko the drummer giving me a peace out as he was getting ready to get on the bus.
It was a really great time and I’m so glad that I finally got to see one of my favorite bands in such a small setting and got to meet a few of them as well. I guess two of the band members Eicca and Antero took a different bus.
The only problem with going to an event that’s been building and building is that when it happens and it finally is over with it’s back to life as usual …. uninspiring and stagnant. I do believe that I am in a full blown funk.
I’m hoping it’ll pass though there’s things going on in my personal life that are making it difficult to be very positive at the moment. One positive is that Mom Larj somehow passed her drivers exam this year so I am off the hook as far as becoming a chauffeur. Whew! Other than that it’s the same old same old. Still working on the same stuff etc. Haven’t started anything new though the Zombie socks are tempting me.
Everyone have a great week.
