I've got a little story, maybe for everybody would be not important and insignificant but here it goes...
Yesterday, I was watching the post of www.enjoyincubus.com "Incubus Xmas Present to our Fans" wich has been the last post done on the site since a few months, the date of the post is 08/12/10 wich I don't how curious could be that, but 8 of december is my birthday. Honestly, at 12:05 AM or near to that time, in the date mentionated, I decided to visit the site and shocked with that video, seriously that was the best birthday present of that day, all excited I watched the complete video while I was smiling with joy, when the video finished, I thought on Mike's quote "I think it's really safe to say that Chile is probably our favorite place to play" that gave me strength, not because i would be chilean, cause I'm venezuelan. The reason that gave me strength that quote was because I made an aim, That Venezuela would be notice to! not to compete with Chile, cause all the fans of Incubus are a big family united for this great group that they have done so many things that other bands don't, touched our hearts with all the feelings that they put on each song of them, our ears with every sound of the voice of Brandon or/and all the instruments behind that voice, our eyes with the lucky ones who can enjoy an incredible experience with them on concerts and meetings also in the original and extravagants covers of each album they made that transmit things that I can't describe and with our mind that's the principal reason, cause with your music identifies each fan of yours, each one transmits something different but in the end, it's because we apreciate so much all your works, We ignore or fight any bad comment about the band.
Why? Why all these stuff? it's to simple the answer, BECAUSE WE ADMIRE YOU!
Back in the story, that was all the story, I guess that sounded insignificant but if you are a faithful Incubus fan think about it, if your birthday is posted a video of Incubus no matter of what, wouldn't you feel at least a little of happiness?
Changing the theme a little bit to the reason why I posted this.
I'm a 15 years old guy from Venezuela that since 3 years I've been wished this, that the band Incubus come again to Venezuela, unfortunately the last concert on 2008 I was just starting to hear about them and I never noticed that would be a concert.
I play guitar and sometimes keyboard or piano, the first song that I learned on guitar was the second guitar of Love Hurts, one of the first songs I played by ear on the keyboard or piano was Here In My Room and non for less, I ussually collect original CD's when I can or found principally, the first CD that start all these obssesion to collect original CD's was Monuments And Melodies and till now I've been trying to find all Incubus CD's
One of the things I want to be when I get older would be an musician, maybe in a band and wanna know something? ALWAYS when I hear a song from Incubus inspires me more and more and more.
Is obviously that Incubus it's the most influence band to me, not any other band has made me feel this inspiration and that's why I admire this band! Thanks to Incubus I'm so into music. And more in the fact cause there are so much types of music on Incubus, any song is similar to other and it stills being current their original essence, that's other fact why this is my favorite band. The Mike's guitar and effects, I admire to be like him, sometimes even I dream that in a concert they pick me to play with Mike hahahaha a little bit crazy but I can dreams at least.
What I try to say, this just one little and simple story of only one fan in Venezuela that wanted to post to give the idea to the other countries that Venezuela are faithful fans, that Incubus should think in Venezuela when they think on the tour. Why? cause.... #VENEZUELAWANTSINCUBUS that's all. We'll wait for you guys!
Waitin' for the album guys! I know that would be a total success! Remember Venezuela wait for you!
Thank you! Brandon Boyd, Mike Einziger, Jose Pasillas, Ben Kenney, Chris Kilmore and of course... Stevie! you're the RENMAN!
A simple venezuelan boy
