Amazing - shouldn't you be some sort of honorary member by now watching them from the side of the stage every time you go

Just the measly 12 myself I should be ashamed Any tips on how to avoid unlucky 13 or did you just not count that one

I have had that privilege several times (about 10?) but I never expect anything or ask for anything. I am grateful for all that I have gotten to do though.

Their talent never ceases to amaze me as well as their sense of humor and the fact that they are the nicest guys...

I'm sure that's a lot! We fortunate to get a lot of East Coast action...


While I did not have the privilege of attending any shows prior to TNLTL tour, I haven't missed a FF show in this area (NYC, PA, NJ) in the past ten years except for one festival in NYC um what was it heineken festival or something. i was down the shore but i did go to all of the afoostic gigs surrounding it. There are two that I really would have liked to have been at - Vegas 2000 and Black Cat 2000 - don't get me started lol


and of course it was very painful to miss out on the secret LA gigs this past winter, particularly after being invited and going all the way out there only to not get to go to one. would have been different if that didn't even happen but what can ya do it is what it is... so honored and thankful for the invitation though...at least I was thought of

...I should also note that Storytellers was pretty cool as well as Irving Plaza club when ESPG came out - Wiley dressed up as Grace lmfao.

large marjority of the gigs I've been at I've been front row center or front row usually shifty side hahah best spots in the house--does take some dedication for those. worth it when I see their faces looking back. it has been nice to be acknowledged over the years. it has been a lot of fun traveling and meeting people. anyway... just posted for the sake of saying wow... 70.
