I am watching one of my favourite bands - The Foo Fighters - perform at the Reading Festival. Unfortunately this post is not coming from the festival itself, but my living room...something that I plan to rectify next year.
Seeing Dave Grohl in action is a particularly life affirming experience as he manages to combine raw power, musical genius and the biggest grin in rock to deliver a masterclass in connecting with an audience. As they've been going nearly twenty years the Foo Fighters' music has soundtracked my adult life so far and the last time I saw them live I had to be dragged from the moshpit due to nearly passing out. The reason? I was (unknown to me) 2 weeks pregnant and my body was not pleased at the weekend of drinking and leaping around I was trying to inflict upon it.
|Go on, admit it. You want to hug him too!|
So here's to all the people that are already rocking out in their day to day lives, turning what they love into their career - I look forward to joining you soon!
UPDATE: I did indeed publish my book. And then another two :) You can view them here
