Song of the Week: “No One”

I fell in love with this song the instant I heard it. It’s beautiful in its original state, but the acoustic version…Oh, my God ❤

Cold — “No One,” from the album 13 Ways to Bleed On Stage (2000).

Music Memories: Sevendust

Music Memories: Sevendust

Last May, I saw Sevendust at a club in Huntsville, Alabama. Their opening acts were Longreef and Almost Kings. (In my opinion, it was worth going just for Almost Kings.) Long story short, the show was absolutely fantastic. I had never seen Sevendust before, but I will definitely be seeing them again whenever possible.

At the end of the night, I was waiting to say goodbye to Almost Kings and Sevendust front man Lajon Witherspoon came out. He went to the bus first. When he re-emerged and saw me standing there, he said “Hey, baby.” I ran forward and hugged him. He told me exactly where I had been during the show–front row, on the right–and was more than happy to pose for this picture (taken by one of Almost Kings’ crew). It’s always nice to discover that members of the bands you love are actually kind people.
