Thumbs up Re: Best Foo Memory

Dingwalls (the original). Storytellers (Dave liked my 9:30 shirt). Goat Island, Sydney Harbour (longest gig and best setlist ever. Taylor said hi from the stage). I'm a lucky monkey.

Well I'm going to see them Sunday so the best is yet to come but one memory off the top of my head was crying when I heard Walk for the 1st time. Was an emotional time for me and it just fit me so well. It made my week that week.

Winding up Dave in the front row on the second day at MKBowl with the 'Ohhhh oh ohhh's' after Best Of You. Was fucking hilarious. He kept saying 'we do have other songs you know!' and I felt a bit bad because I barely like that song and don't really want to encourage them to play it, but it was just too damn funny, went on for fucking ages. Oh, and getting him to down beers, that guy can't half down a beer.

Mine would be the first time that I saw them live back in 2005. It was one of the first gigs I'd ever been to. I'd wanted to see them before then but my parents were v.strict on the whole not going to other cities to see bands before I turned 18.

My friend who I was going with had been caught by her parents staying out late with a boy they did not approve of so they told her she was grounded and couldn't go with me to see Foos the following night. She rang me, to say sorry. I was beyond gutted. I tried to find someone else to go with but it was too short notice. It got to around 6pm on the night I was sitting in my room feeling depressed about missing them again, when I get a call from the friend in question, she's snook out of the house and waiting for me to get to the station because if we get the next train we'll make it in time. We made it. It was brilliant made all the sweeter by thinking that I was going to miss out.

That or Wembley Arena earlier this year because they played Hey Johny Park.
