This time a year ago I saw SOAD life for the first and only time in my life. The tickets had been lying in my wardrobe for 7 months, but it was worth waiting for so long! More than about the fact that I saw them, I’m excited about Shavo and John having signed my ticket after the show :’) I was VERY CLOSE to getting also Daron’s autograph, but he decided to go away just when he was close to me :c But I touched Shavo’s arm, he looked right at me (yelling “I LOVE YOU” works) and had a half-a-minute-long conversation with John and HE SMILED :’)) I was crying while talking to him and HE HUGGED ME. No. I just can’t. I’m thinking about this moment and ugh.
What’s more special about this event, it was the only time I got autographs of any of my favourite musicians. And I thought SOAD was completely unaccessible to the laymen! Ok, I’ve got also autographs of Marek Piekarczyk and Stefan Machel, but they’re members of a Polish band TSA - Polish bands are very open to their fans and practically ALWAYS give autographs and take pictures with fans after gigs, so it wasn’t very hard for me to get those :)
