The Pearl Jam Concert was Unreal My buddy Jeff Goodheart got us backstage passes and i got to meet two of the five band members. Mike McCready and Jeff Ament. We went backstage before the show and Mike McCready talked to us for about 20min and while he was talking he had his guitar in his hands and was warming up. The man is a total god at guitar solos and here he was just picking away infront of us. Like I mean he wasn’t just some hack in the subway, his little warmup session could of been played infront of thousands of people, instead it was just me and Jeff there. Then he gave us an autographed poster signed by all five bandmates, with a personalized message from Mike. There were people backstage Mike didn’t even say hi to, yet he and his wife sat down and talked to us for quite awhile. His wife is smokin‘ hot by the way. The whole night was unbelievable not to mention the concert too.

Backstage Baby!

View from the handicap section – the view was actually better than this picture suggests. I’m actually glad we weren’t on the floor because everyone was standing and I wouldn’t of seen a thing from a wheelchair. Just hearing the crowed chanting got my heart pumping, the place was packed.

the signed setlist

I asked Mike what the opening song would be? He said “Release” and all the groupies in the room covered there ears and started yelling La la la, I thought it was funny.

the signed poster – I’m totally framing this baby

My favorite song that night was¬†probably¬†the opening with “Release”. The best monent was when Mike started running around on the ground in a circle like homer Simpson while playing guitar. The whole concert was awesome even without the backstage stuff. But that just made it sweeter.

In 2007 I got bit by a mosquito and got west Nile virus. Then it became an autoimmune disease that left me in a wheelchair. They were able to stop the autoimmune disease and virus, so now all I have to worry about is physio. I'm getting better and soon I will rule the world.
