Haven't heard from you. I wasn't really expecting you to write. I know that you're busy with your gigs and your fan mail, etc. But I just wanted to let you know, that if you did try writing me, and it bounced back to ya, it's because a friend had sent me a bunch of his drawings and it filled my email account to the max and I couldn't recieve any more mail. So, if you did respond to the following letter, then please send it again. I hate to have missed anything that you might have had to say. If you didn't write, then, like I said, I totally understand.
A devoted fan!
PS I'm about 75% sure on the Chico thing. I have about 3/4 of the money I think I need for gas and admission, etc. Now it's down to coming up with the other 1/4 of the money and also the timing is bad, nine o'clock in the middle of a work week, and Chico is a good hour and half a way from us, if not farther. Even my dad called the other day to see when you guys were playing and said that he'd love to go, but he's a long haul truck driver and the chance of having time off on a Wednesday night is rare. But I'll do my best to try to make it. Anyway, just thought I'd let you know. Peace!
Response to the letter you sent me:
Thanks so much for taking the time and writing me back. I just can't tell you how much that means to me. Honestly, I wasn't really expecting anything back, but I'm so glad that you did write back because now I know that you got and read my letter. That's truly an honor.
I don't really know of any other band/musician that associates with their fans the way you guys do. It makes you guys really special. My dad was even bragging about how you take the time with each fan after your shows and this is what my husband wrote about it after I told him you responded to my email: "these guys are kind of special, in the way that they treat their fans, aren't they? I respect that, even if I'm not a fan of their music." His favorite band is Offspring, so good luck converting him into a fan. However, he did enjoy your concert at the Asparagas festival, so who knows? I guess anything's possible.
I'm really glad that you liked my drawing, because I've been thinking about drawing you your own version/copy of it and on the back, quoting what you said about it in the video, that inspired the drawing. And you can use it in your Living Bio, frame it and put it on your wall, or do whatever you wish with it. I'll present it to you in Chico if we are able to go. That's still kind of up in the air right now, but I'll let you know for sure if we are going to make it or not. I really hope so, I'm looking forward to seeing you guys again. You're AWESOME!!
