Albatross (Adam Stockdale) - Puppet on a string

seriously... how awesome are those guys?!!?

ok… Last friday I went to see Johnny Flynn and Mumford & Sons…

PART 1 OF MY GIG JOURNAL…(I don’t know how long it might get.. but I have a lot of good memories about that day …)

It luckly was a sunny warm afternoon when I arrived at the venue… I recognized the turquoise green giant tourbus from meters away… I was electrified… I got out of the bus I came by, and I slowly walked through the park… I immediately saw someone familiar from a distance… Adam Beach was coming out of the Tourbus… He was wearing a white tee shirt and a blue plaid shirt… He walked right in front of me and he looked so cute and shy… I was literally paralysed… I guess I realized, just that moment, that I was going to see them.. I mean.. REALLY SEE THEM CLOSER!!

While I was picking up my precious ticket at the entrance desk, my hand was stupidely shaking… I looked around… Adam and another guy I didn’t recognize at first (he was the “other” Adam… Adam Stockdale.. from Albatross… a lovely guy..) were sitting there chatting…

I decided that the best way to spend the following few hours was to lie down on the grass… sunbathing… keeping an eye on the door at the end of the stairs…

I saw the lovely Joe (Zeitlin) from SW wearing his glasses and headphones, wandering with a some music papers… 

I saw some white trousers coming out of that door… I recongnized him because of his trousers (I have some serious problems!!!)… by the way .. he was BEN!!!!! my heart skipped some beats… after a while Winston (wearing his trusty denim shorts), Johnny Flynn, Chris Pollard (their sound engineer) and another blond guy walked the catwalk right in front of me… finally Marcus too came out of the building, he was on the phone.. and I smiled guessing who he was talking to…

after about 30 minutes a couple of guys (David Beauchamp, drummer in SW, and the blond guy, who was at the merchandising desk later that night) came out and sat on the grass.. like less than 2 meters far from me!!! I could basically hear their conversation.. from that moment the group started to grow bigger.. so that in  minutes or so a bunch of the coolest guy I can imagine were joking and sunbathing in front of my very eyes… I tried not to stare at them too much because I didn’t want so be too intrusive… but the temptation was too much to bare… I catched Ted’s eyes more than once but I tried to look away… I don’t know.. maybe his height… maybe his blondness…!?!?!… there was something about him that just made me unconfortable… (I realized later that this was a stupid STUPID thought)… I couldn’t help but silently laugh when I heard Winston’s laughter… oh man… its so contagious and ridiculously funny!!! At some point Marcus came out with another guy and said bye to the guys on the grass saying something like “I’ll see you later…”… there were just 10 early attendants at the gig… It was 6 PM…

In the meanwhile Joe was rehearsing in the house and his cello symphony was coming out of an opened window.. the atmosphere in that garden was really magical… When I saw Ben resting on the grass trying to catch the last warm sunbeams I felt in peace with the world… he seemed to me like a little angel…

Can you see the head in the bottom left corner? I was right on the left of that girl… I remember her so well because she was dressed exactly like Marcus Mumford (plaid shirt, waistcoat and sunglasses).. even the haircut was similar!! WEIRD!!!
