Now here’s a little uneventful story that I’m very happy about:
The Greenhornes came in while Hacienda, was getting to the end of their set, and I went over to Patrick Keeler to ask for a picture, but he said “not right now, we just got here,” cause they had to set up. Bummer, but obviously understandable. But it was just awesome that afterwards, my friends and I waited for a short while, I shook touring member Mark Watrous’ hand, and then Patrick came out and we talked to him, I told him I’m a huge fan and the show was amazing, and we got to shake his hand. He said “thanks for understanding earlier” and was glad to take a few pictures with us.
I sound like such a starstruck little kid, but that’s because I am when it comes to great musicians. He is seriously one of the most talented drummers out there, and it’s so awesome to find out first hand that someone I admire is actually as nice of a guy as I had hoped.
