Alter Bridge rocked last night.
We waited for 7 pissin hours. Manda n Steve buggered off in to a sex shop next to the Mean Fiddler and wouldn't shut up about sex for at least an hour, if not more.
We all met the band when they turned up and I had my photo taken with Mark Tremonti. I had a few words with Flip and a few with Myles but I didn't get chance to talk to Brian.
@ about 6:15 this guy fucked everybody about with the barrier messin' about with us ilson folk and Nobody messes with us ilson folk, coz we get nasty, and I dont mean ankle biter nasty either.
We got let in about 5 past 7 and got straight to the front, Me, Manda, Steve & Scott went to the center of the stage and the other guys went to where Mark would stand.
The support act "The Answer" were a better version of the Darkness and some dude behind us shouted "Yeah come on, more 70's rock" Which I totally disagreed with coz I couldn't wait to see Alter Bridge.
Alter Bridge came on and started the 1st song, which was One Day Remains, which fuckin' rocked. They played the whole album but in a crazy random order. 3 songs before the end they took a break and brought out the bongo's and played In loving memory, which I cried at and as Ive been told, so did Scott. They also played certain requests from the crowd and a few cover versions, which included Kiss and Led Zeppelin.
I got to shake Tremonti's hand at the end and I got to touch Myles. Half way through the gig I noticed Myles grab Manda's hand and just wouldn't let go, he also for some reason wouldn't stop staring at her :S
For some reason, Liam thought Manda kissed Myles at some point too.
On the train back, in Dave's words, I got permo'd while asleep and took advantage of with the camera. Apparently, fun was had by all.
I suppose the biggest downer of the night is finding out Liam and Joe thought my name was Crummy. It's Krum you fools ;) (jokin' on the fools part)
Got back to Notts with the word Krum written down my face and a smudged mustache (I didn't know this at the time). Dave, Joe & Liam got a lift back home and Me, Manda, Steve & Scott got the 3am bus back to Ilson.
Steve said hello to 2 random strangers at the bus stop, 1 said hello back and the other told him to shut up.
Got back to Ilson and said bye to Steve. We walked back to Manda's house, Scott got his stuff and went home, Manda went to bed, and I passed out on her living room floor because for some strange random reason, which made no sense at all, Mikey was on the fucking sofa fast asleep.
I woke up in the morning with an imprint of the carpet on my face.
I started to eat a pack of open bourbons, which had been there since the day before, luckily they had been untouched but I left the room for 10mins and Paul pinched the bastards and ate them.
And thats me up to date, so long and goodbye.
From everybody's good friend, Kai McCloud.
