Somethin’ never comes, never leads to nuthin’
Nothin’ satisfies, but I’m gettin’ close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope
Over the weekend I attended a Foo Fighters/Weezer concert. Wasn't a big Weezer fan going in.....Wasn't a fan at all going out. Lurve the Foo Fighters and was willing to give Weezer a chance because they were playing with my boys....I'm not feeling Nerd rock....at all. AT ALL!!!!!!! Say it again....AT ALL! Weezer's demographics.....teenage or adult teenage boys who have been (only in their minds) turned down by all women everywhere and choose to use Nerd Rock as a mental and physical outlet....ie...attending the concert, jumping up and down, screaming the lyrics as I run and duck from "nerdy, getting none" sweat. Gross. God Love'em, Girls stay out of their way.
And just as I was about to give up and wait in the car......Weezer's time finally ran out....Hip-Hop Hooray.....I'll admit I might not have minded Weezer so much if I wasn't waiting on the Foo Fighters.. Being served up Weezer before the Foo Fighters was like having to eat a bowl of Okra after dinner but before dessert. No thanks.
But when the lights dimmed and the guitar riff for "All my life" boomed throughout the venue...Do the damn thing!.....The Okra taste was quickly washed away by a shot of Amaretto.....and then....the lights go up and my boy.....the man........just as cool and humble and un-Rockstar as he wants to be....but is a MAJOR rockstar...and a solid one too.....Foo-Fighter front man - Dave Grohl comes in to full view....he...he is (white) chocolate molten cake. With a dollop of fresh whipped cream.
My Adidas got stomped on at least 5 times....lucky for those fools we weren't at a rap concert....You just couldn't get away with that floor standing thing at a hip-hop concert...somebody's gonna violate....and get violated.....but we we're at a rock concert, where the office folks go to release so I gave in and did the rock "jump around" or up and down or whatever it was......maybe I was just rockin' out and I'm having a hard time admitting it.....I was Rockin' out....Up on my friends Shoulders..How's the back, Kelly? ....Courtesy of my friend I had a clear view over the six foot tall Weezer fans.
I really do appreciate the Foo Fighters as a rock band. Because I'm not the big concert goer. I have to like the artist in a borderline obsessive way, not just like one of their hit songs. Otherwise I suffer from a mild case of Can'tstayandlisten tothesongsIdontknoweus. But I can with those guys...Great music......Great musicians. Undeniable. Happy I was there to witness. Go Long Beach!!!!
As I was searching for a photo of The Foo Fighters to post, I thought, wow, it must be tough for Dave Grohl sometimes, standing there in photos but having to stand in front of the rest of the band. It takes a special personality. I could do it.
