I love music, it brings me such peace and happiness. If I am having a bad day, it lifts my mood and makes me want to shake my hips.. It helps motivate me at the gym or when going for a walk. I can lose myself in it and not think about things.
My favorite band of all time is Avenged Sevenfold. I fell in love with the quite a few years ago when I first heard the song ‘Nightmare’. Somedays I can just honestly relate to the song and feel like its a f*cking nightmare. Jon and I also sing along to it with our awesome singing voices (j/k). I love the sound of their music, including the new album The Stage. And we have seen them live quite a few times as well. Watching Synyster Gates is one of the most fun times I have had with Jon. Listening to the guitars and drums, all their music is just so well put together.
I love going to live shows and concerts. I have seen so many bands. Some of my favorites are Like a Storm, Pop Evil, Breaking Benjamin, Theory of a Deadman, and Three Days Grace. I am so enthralled with watching the artists perform. Watching the drummer put so much energy into their drums, and the guitarists moving all around, jumping off risers, playing to the crowd and loving what they are doing. And the singers who put their heart and souls into every word, every lyric, every song.
My message is to all artists or performers who might be struggling. Keep going, keep up your passion, keep doing what you love. Just because 1 person or a group of people don’t like what you, doesn’t mean no body else will… Do what you love and to hell to those people who try to bring you down.
