Touched by a Young Fan!
I was front row and standing beside me at this show was a young lad all of 10 or 11. I spoke with him before the show and he was learning to play guitar and was a huge Satch fan. He told me he had been waiting ALL his life to see Joe play and you could just feel the excitement boucing off this little guy. During the show when Joe would play directly in front of us, I would look down at him to 1) make sure he had room and could see and 2) just to see the immense joy in this kids eyes! He was smiling ear to ear, watching every move Joe made with that guitar. This kid was in awe of his idol and it actual brought a tear to my eyes a few times during the show!!
After the show, I made sure he had gotten a pic from Joe (which he did) and asked him what he thought of his very first concert seeing his favorite musician?? He gave me a high five and said "it totally rocked" and he would never ever forget that night!! I walked out of the show, not only high from my own experience, but elated knowing this little guy truly had had the best night of his young life and I was there to share that special moment with him!
Whether we are 5 or 85...Chickenfoot and its music brings joy to so many in so many ways!! Thanks Joe, Sammy, Chad and Mikey for bringing it on the road and giving all your fans young and old, the ultimate thrill of THE FOOT!
