This is wrong. I never got much past Ramones and Cheap Trick covers on the bass, but I know that this is not how it goes.


Their forearm veins touched, and there was a glance that lasted too long. And then they belonged to each other, and to the moment, and Jay Blakesberg took many pictures.


“Show me your war face! GRAAAAAH!”


“You have to get into it, Michael.”


“You gonna take this seriously?”

“Nice to meeeeeeeet you.”




“Don’t answer that, Michael: it’s Taylor Swift and she’s crazy.”

“She called you, too?”

“Twice. I heard she talked to Page.”

“Made him cry, yeah.”

“Page cries a lot, though.”

“We’ve gotten used to it.”
