When I was at Joe and Aimee of the Cool Name’s house last weekend, we started talking about concerts. Apparently Aimee can count the number of shows she has seen on one hand. (Sad, sad girl). And as she listed them off, I felt myself throw-up a little bit. I had been thinking about a post for a while, talking about bands I would never see in concert. Bands I hate so much that even if you paid me, I wouldn’t go see them. (Because let’s face it, I would go see almost anyone for free).
THREE of the five bands that she had seen, were on my Not If You Paid Me List. Guess which ones?
• Kid Rock
• Snoop Dog
• Jimmy Buffett
• Grateful Dead (if they were alive)
• Neil Young
Yes, poor little Aimee, who has only seen 5 shows ever, has been subjected to Kid Rock, the Grateful Dead and Jimmy Buffett in her lifetime. No wonder she has only seen 5.
She was quick to assure me that Kid Rock was for free. Well, I hope so!
Apparently, Joe had an in somewhere, so they even went back stage and were able to meet THE MAN. And the MIDGET! (He was still alive then). And, good news people! They are just as big assholes as you would imagine. Calling girls bitches and ho’s IS NOT AN ACT! Whew! I am so relieved!
Apparently Joe said something really rude to the Midget and pissed him off, too. I was so proud.
AND! It gets better! When I told this story to Jeff the other night, his eyes got big and he started telling me about how our friends Auggie and Renee saw Kid Rock like 2 weeks ago (what, is it like a DISEASE???) and they, too, somehow made it backstage. And how some roadie shoved a pizza in Renee’s hand because “the guys like food with their girls.”
Now that’s class.
So. Kid Rock remains at the very top of the Not If You Paid Me List.
NOW! WHO IS ON YOUR LIST?
This is gonna be fun!
