No matter how many bands you like, there will always be that one band who can never be replaced. The band that got you into all of this, that literally changed your life. Other bands may come and go, but you will always come back to that one band. The one that will always hold a special place in your heart.
Sometimes when I listen to bands for a long time and watch them progress; release music video after music video, cd after cd, change clothing and hair style after style, I feel like I’ve raised them up, in a way, and watched them grow. I look at them and kinda feel proud of them. Proud that they have achieved all their goals and aspirations and dreams. I would listen to their old albums and look at their old photos and think, “Wow. Gosh. They have changed so much.” It’s almost as if they were my own kids. You’re very happy for them, but then you realize that they are also getting older, lyrics are getting more complicated, and then the realization that one day they may not be a band anymore hits you. One day, they will move on and go their own separate ways. Knowing that then, you will not be able to see them anymore progress and grow is the saddest and most loneliest feeling of all.
