This is a very, VERY special surprise request. From one dude...to his dudette. I met Dave and Melissa after a show I did in Raleigh, NC. I had never been to Raleigh before - so I'm always skeptical the first time out - but the room was packed with some of the most awesome peeps out there. I was nervous going in to begin with - I got lost on my way to the gig, driving alone, in the stupid dark, in a stupid small car that could barely fit my stupid gear and self. Soundcheck was a strain - I couldn't get my shit together because I was just in that STUPID state of mind. So I threw a few Jamos back and stepped onto the stage - and left all of my stupidness behind 'cause dang, this crowd was ready for a good time. And I was gonna give it to them, dammit!!!!
It was one of my best shows. And then I met Dave and Melissa - super amazing, super sweet couple. Dave backed for a surprise song for his future Mrs. - that's right, this amazeballs couple is getting married, yo! This is a total surprise to his lady, Melissa, which scores him some MAJOR cool points:). This song really got me in the feels - such a haunting and beautiful cluster of words/melodies that feels great in all spots - mind/mouth/ears/heart. I won't lie - this song was super hard to do. Not because it was a hard song to play...I think this was my 9th take - I kept making mistakes in between and poor Paul had to keep restarting the cameras. I just wanted it to be perfect for Dave and Melissa - I'm so honored to be a part of their special moment that I didn't want to fuck it up!! That's why the extra loud PHEW at the end:).
To the happy couple - congratulations, and may you grow old together and eat lots of pizza and make lots of memories and bake lots of chocolate cakes and make this world a better place with your awesomeness.
