I still think I’m in Take him to the Greek.  I saw a Russell Brand look alike who was definitely in a band. I meant to see what instrument he played but whatevers. I also saw a Kid Cudi look-alike.  He was just too tall to be Kid Cudi.

Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart.

Thats it for the look alikes.  I saw Heart live. 🙂 It was almost as exciting as seeing Lady Gaga live for me.  And what annoyed me to no end were the people who assumed I couldn’t know Heart. The people who were telling me who they were although I’m quite sure I know way more about them than they do.   Or the people who were like I’m too young to appreciate them. And yeah it was surprising to people that I’m a huge fan or that they discovered I like Pink Floyd…I know that music came out before I was born. I’m well aware, but its good. 

Heart is a real rock band.  I don’t see too many of those today. And for all the people my age who keep asking what songs Heart does which would explain why people assume I wouldn’t know- they do Barracuda which is on guitar hero and a version sang by Fergie is on Shrek 3.  They’re most awesome song live is Magic Man in my opinion.  That’s probably my fav Heart song in the first place.  What was extremely awesome too was their Reign O’er me cover

I also saw a guy I really wanted to take a picture of but since I was driving a huge van I couldn’t stop and take a pic.  He had an afro, had a vintage Heart tee on, and carried a record and sharpie hoping for a signiture.  He waited for hours after the show but unfortunately I don’t believe Heart even saw him. It would be kind of difficult especially considering how dark it was.  Poor guy.  But I did get a pic of the prints Heart’s dog lift on a couch.  I wish I got a pic of the dog.  I think he was a terrier and he was so cute and wore a WTF shirt.

I wish I got a Heart Tee, but since I got so many free Tees from previous bands I didn’t want to buy one…oh well I guess I can still buy one online.

Tale of Sublime and the fake Lil Wayne

I admit sometimes I see things that I wouldn’t believe if it didn’t happen to me. Like the other day I saw this dude with an entourage that looked just like Lil Wayne, except lil Wayne’s in jail so of course it couldn’t be him and his entourage looked just like the Black Eyed Peas.  It was like lil Wayne took Will.I.Am’s place and started going with Fergie cuz this look alike was diffently going out with a girl that looked just like Fergie.  And as I passed girls in the mall they all wanted a piece of him. He was wearing the skinniest jeans I’ve ever saw a guy wearing and it was like how’d he get in them. So of course I looked too long in his direction and they thought I like those other girls was looking at him and his possy had to say something to the effect of boasting his ego. Although I kinda wish I had a pic to show how similar he looked. He didn’t have tats though and his dreads weren’t as long.

I worked the Sublime with Rome concert yesterday.  It was fair awesome.  I got to drive members of the Dirty Heads, Matisyahu, and Sublime, and Rome around.  They were all cool guys. I used to think that these music artists are all full of themselves but that’s not the case.  Of course you do have a bunch of those around, but these guys were cool. 

So yesterday I bought out all the Deer Parks at Food Lion which were hidden beneath a mountain of water that I’m so glad someone dug out for me. I took band members to Guitar Center which was cool. While there someone was playing Alicia Keys and other good songs very well. But when band guys look for stuff at a music store they mean busy and it took a while for them to get what they wanted.

Throughout out the concert there were quite a few arrests of drunk/high people.  I even saw cops chase this one guy down.  At the time I was in the van driving for a pick up and Led Zeppelin Whole Lotta Love was on. That is a really good cop chase song if you ever wanted one.

And we may be seeing Rome on Yo Gabba Gabba soon.  That would be cool.
