in the car with my best friend and she showed me "car radio." I instantly fell
in love with them. I went home and listened to everything I could find. They
weren't signed to a record label yet, so they didn't have a whole lot of stuff
on the Internet that I could find. A couple days later my best friend had made
me a cd with all of the songs she had by them.
We continued to listen to them all of the time and followed what they were doing with their music.
During this time, my life was changing so much. My father passed away
and there were times when I didn't think I could go on. Twenty One Pilots really
helped me through that time. They just gave me so much hope.
When they got signed, they were able to do more concerts around the states (and
world, really). This meant they would be going to Colorado where my best friend
lived (I live in Texas at the moment). So I flew down and visited her and we
went to see them at the Black Sheep in Colorado Springs. I can confidently say
that it was the best concert I will ever go to! It was a small venue and we were
first row. They put on an amazing show, and just thinking about it makes me want
to go back so bad!
After the show we were able to go talk to Josh and Tyler. I have an art journal and I had done a
page for them in it, hoping I could get them to sign it. They were so great
about it and even asked to flip through some of the pages! It was just an
awesome feeling to have people that I look up to so much actually be impressed
with something I created. Then, my friend and I asked Tyler about his tattoos
and he explained what they meant. That was probably my favorite part about the
whole thing... It was just really inspirational and cool to listen to what they
meant to him. I would definitely say if you ever have the chance to talk to him
about it, then you should!
Anyway, they are just really freakin' great and I don't think I could ever
possibly get tired of their music. They inspire me to create and to dream big.
watching them grow so much has been one of the coolest experiences. There is no
other band like Twenty One Pilots. Thank you, Tyler and Josh, you guys are truly
