I Can't Tell If I'm A Kingpin or a Pauper

The first concert I ever went to was the Red Hot Chili Peppers. (Which, if I do say so myself, is a pretty darn sweet first concert, lucky me.)

The concert was awesome and head-thrashing and loud and completely memorable. (Um, hello, they did their encore wearing nothing but gym socks on their you-know-whats! Which... WOOOOOOO! Oh, and the music was great too.)

But when I think back on that concert, a big part of it for me was the seriously cute guy my friend and I talked to on the SkyTrain ride back to our car.

We never asked for his name, but gave him a nickname anyway (which I wish I could remember) and used to talk about what a great couple the two of us would make. Me and what's his name the blonde cutie.

(Although, I swear, if Anthony Kiedis had given me the nod, It'd have been a whole different story.)

Ahhhhh yes. Those were the days.

Give it away, give it away, give it away now. . . .

Who was your first concert?

And did you meet the love of your life on the SkyTrain on the way home too?

P.S. Happy Earth Day!

Haha, oh my God. I'm embarassed. My first concert was the Backstreet Boys. Needless to say, I did not meet my soul mate that day.

I don't know my first but my best concert was from the Chili Peppers too! I loved it, I was euphoric and it gave me so much energy!

My first concert was Ozzy Osborne when I was a junior in high school. It was an amazing experience, got about 3 rows back from the stage at one point. Also the first time I passed out, lol. When my fiance and I were comparing concert notes, turns out we were both at a lot of the same concerts, including that one.
