We met Damon Albarn Saturday after the Seattle Gorillaz show and I don’t know how to describe how I feel right now. Damon got out of his car on his way out to greet fans, and he was the sweetest, kindest, caring person I have ever seen with his fans. (I know that can sound like hyperbole coming from a fan, but I really mean that) People were relating personal stories to him, telling him that his music saved or impacted their life in a huge way, and he gave them HUGE hugs, genuinely caring. He spent a lot of time with the cosplayers dressed up like the animated characters (you could tell it meant the world to them to take their pic with 2-D) I know it sounds silly, but seeing your role model be the person you imagine them to be, to see that they do what they preach—love other people, be compassionate, be all-encompassing right in front of you, to other people, means more to me than any concert, any autograph, ANYTHING else they could do really. As an artist, Damon has inspired my life and my art to such a huge extent, that to see him be genuine like that…I broke down and cried when we got back. (I’ll admit it, I’m a softie) I’m still crying. I love this man, and I don’t mean that in an obsessive fan way, or a “rock star” way or whatever, I mean that I love who he is as an artist and a person and he inspires me every day to be a better version of myself. I still can’t believe it happened. This trip has been incredible and I’ve met so many incredible other fans and people and now him, too! Thank you 🙏
