“I remember waking up to seeing music videos shown on MTV in the mornings. I was only four when Evanescence made their break through on the charts. At that time my family owned a projector and had surround sound. So? I would wake up to seeing Amy Lee and hearing her rock goddess voice. I thought it was pretty rad how I spent my mornings listen to Evanescence blaring throughout my house. It may of seemed pretty lame to others, but to me it was the birth of confidence and dreams.”
“Evanescence is my favorite band because they will always be there. Your friends screw you over, your boyfriend/girlfriends screw you over, your parents, your job, your family, they all screw you over. Evanescence won’t wake up one day and decide they don’t like me anymore. They will ALWAYS be there.”
It’s great that Amy is in a much happier state of mind – No, really! I’m very glad for her – but now the songs don’t seem as heartfelt and relate-able as they used to be. I used to be able to turn to Evanescence’s music in my darkest times. Now, it’s like, “Okay, Amy. I’m happy for your joy” but I miss their old sound/feel… I guess I’ll cling to their older albums.
Nashville 8-17-11 Today is the 1 year anniversary of my 1st Evanescence show & was the beginning of a journey into a fan world like I have never known. The people I’ve met & their stories will always be in my heart. I truly feel like Ev’s fans are family. Thanks.
