I became a pilot in 2009, I was at The Attic which is a venue in Kettering Ohio. I was with a few friends and TOP was playing on the smaller stage, the sound, the emotion and the way they danced on stage just automatically dragged me to them. We stood and watch in amazement. After that day I never heard anything from them again, I never saw a show they played and I didn't even know their name honestly. In late 2010/early 2011 that all changed. They were everywhere about once or twice a month I saw them at every local venue. With every word and every note I heard I fell more in love. I remember I would lay in my room and play their CD "twenty one pilots" over and over. I would get chills. Once they got signed I couldn't believe it, i didn't want to believe it in fear they would change. They wouldn't be the same anymore. I saw them after they were signed in Indiana, tyler and josh (and mark of course) remembered me by name, and they were genuinely excited to see me. Thats when i knew Tyler and Josh weren't just band members to me, they are real people who go through real things. They know what you're going through and they will do everything in their power to help you fix it. Still to this day almost 4 years later I still get chills listening to them, I still go to their music when I need some direction in my life. They've never let me down after almost 4 years. That's why I am a pilot. I am there for them as they are there for me.
