Fan-Tastic Fridays #2

It’s Friday! For me, it’s undoubtedly going to be the best Friday of the year, because I’m going to go see one of my favorite bands in concert tonight.

Yep, it’s that one band. The one that was getting ready to perform when I was smacked upside the head with the original idea for Backstage Pass.

Avenged Sevenfold

Their live shows are always epic. Can’t WAIT! Give me a moment to bow down to their greatness. “We’re not worthy. We’re not worthy.”

Loving their new album, “Hail to the King”, btw. If you haven’t picked it up yet, get on that.

Coincidentally, October isΒ Backstage Pass‘s anniversary. On October 1st 2010, Backstage Pass debuted to very limited acclaim. Very limited. It took about a year for it to really catch on. So the book is three years old this month. I think that’s 21 in book years–I forget the exact math. It amazes me that people are still reading it.

So I think we need an epic Backstage Pass giveaway celebration today. What do you think? I figured you’d agree with me. Who doesn’t like free stuff?
