Picture from the Bob Dylan concert last night at the Rockhal in Luxembourg.
The concert was simply amazing. I was there early so that I got a really nice place in the 5 - 6 row, a bit to the left side so that I could see Bob behind the piano and also when he was standing in the middle of the stage.
The music and Bobs singing was amazing. It was my third concert and every concert so far was completely different. The arrangements had a kind of western feeling this time. I also love the version he played of Don’t think twice. I hope I can find a recording of it on youtube or somewhere else.
Bob was also really adorable. (Although that might just be me, because I love the man). I think he was in a good mood because he made a lot of jokes between songs especially with Donnie. Donnie was grinning everytime Bob said something to him between songs.
He also danced around behind the piano and when he was standing in the middle of the stage. I especially like his little move where he puts his hand on his hip and moves his hip to right side (if you have seen it before, you know what I mean). I did that a lot, especially later in the show.
Some of his moves made Tony smile which always brightens everything. A day can’t get better when you see Tony Garnier smiling while Bob Dylan is dancing around in front of him.
There was also some adorable hair fluffing.
And I swear Bob only plays Spirit on the water to hear people boo when he sings the line “You think I’m over the hill, You think I’m past my prime”. And there were a lot of boos. But I defenitely had a whoppin’ good time.
To the lines “You know I’ll love you, Till the moon’s upside down” in Why try to change me now, I can also just say: I love you too, Bob.
So alot of people look at me like I am just a fangirl of Guns N Roses. Like my mom, my dad, my stepdad, my friends, ect…thats not the case. And Ill tell you why.
What they fail to realize and what I have never told them, is that Guns N Roses saved my life. Big time. And they dont understand this.
So here is my story…
I WAS going too kill myself, because of everything that was going on in my life. My parents divorce, Moving outta state, leaving my family and friends, moving into a house with a stranger, and cause of alot of the stuff going on with my dad, and it was tolling on me. My mom was making me choose between my dad and her and i didnt want to choose.
I was going to do it after school one day.. I had everything planned out. But I was contemplating it because i didnt want to seem like a weak person. But i knew if i didnt do it, i was going to hurt someone i love and i didnt want to do that.
So i started listening to music and I remembered a song my dad would play for me when i was little and it was “our song” and it was Sweet Child O Mine. And i listened to it and told myself that i couldnt do it because i had to be here for him and to help him because he is an alcoholic but he is my bestfriend. I had to be there for him and to take care of him because really, I am all he has. My sister doesnt like going to see him, my mom hates him, and he doesnt see his family much, I am it.
And it sucks when my friends or family dont talk to me because i talk about them alot and when they call the “just a dumb band” because they arent a dumb band to me. At one point, they were all i had. I wouldnt be here if it wasnt for them.
GNR is my passion, music is my passion. Dont let anyone stand in the way of your passion. And they have taught me about things in life. Each and every one of them taught me something:
Axl taught me that no matter what happens, you can do whatever you want with your own goddamn life, to be myself, say what I want, never let an opportunity pass you by and that even though youve had it rough in the past you can move forward.
Slash taught me to be a humble person, inspired my to play guitar and let out my feelings that way.
Duff taught me to always have fun
Steven taught me to always have
A smile on my face and a bright attitude even during the toughest times
And Izzy taught me to be conservative
If I didnt listen to that Guns N Roses song in those 20 minutes of being home, I wouldnt be here today. That 5 minute and 56 second song spared my life. And in the 6 minutes, I realized my passion and what I had to do.
Just now, I was trying to show my mom a concert picture of the recent Guns N Roses show and she turned to me and said “ I dont give a shit.”
And it got me thinking, if she doesnt care about them, than she honestly doesnt care about my passions. I know others have to experience something like this with family or friends and I just wanted to let you know that just because someone else doesnt want to hear about something youre interested in or something that youre passionate about, does not mean you should give it up.
It should motivate you! It doesnt matter if its not gnr related, it can be anything!
If it is your passion, keep going! Dont stop!
My passion has kept me alive.
