    None of you will prolly care...but i am so excited, last night i went to a MxPx / Slick Shoes concert (MxPx has been my one of my fav bands for about 7 years and i've never seen them live before this)

    so i was very psyched to begin with....and they were awesome!!

    but the best part is that after they got done playing, and everyone started to leave, i just saw Mike Herrera (Bassist / Lead Vocals) talking to crew on the side of the stage, so i figured hey why not, so i went over and we had a good 10 minute conversationwith him before the other people i was with found where i was...he was very nice and a very cool guy to talk to, he didn't have a big ego or anything like other musicians do...

    he has been my main musical idol since i started listening to them... so this was like a dream come true...such an awesome night

    (me: left, mike: right)

  2. Clay, that's awesome man! Sounds like you had a great experience.

    Remember this and when you become a star, try and treat others like he treated you!

    Yeah well, he's not a REAL star unless he spits on you and punches you in the stomach for attempting to talk to him.

  5. Sounds cool! On a different note, were Slick Shoes any good live? I like them as a bog-standard pop-punk band.
