I remember the first concert I ever saw. Tori Amos came to my little town when I was in my sophomore year of high school. She was playing at the King Center in Melbourne, Florida. I went with my best friend Elaine, and the night was so amazing. Everyone I knew and was friends with at school was there. We were all dressed up, as if it was some grand ball. Tori's music captivated the audience for an hour and a half, and afterwards, I spent the night at my friend's house as we went over every detail of the event.

Since then, I have been to almost 20 more shows, and every time I swear it was the best show I have ever been to.

Since most of my favorite bands are not mainstream acts, they play small venues where meeting your musical idols is not a difficult thing to do. On numerous occasions, I have found myself talking with Finger Eleven, Full Devil Jacket, Our Lady Peace and others.

I decided to share with you, oh worthy reader, some of my fondest memories when it comes to rock star glory.
