It was a blast to kick it with what Bobby called “the Mandrill’s Crew” from 2pm on Friday ’til close to 2am on Saturday morning. I was glad I took Friday off because I had so much to do! It was awesome and not surprising to find each and every one of the crew for that evening in the gym before we rolled out. It was like roll call up in there lol. Before we hit the gym, we rented a Ford “Flex” (no pun intended) SUV so we could fit 6. Thanks to Scott for having our back on that!
That concert seriously rocked out! It was such a blast. I went to see In This Moment and loved them, but Korn had stolen that show the minute they stepped on stage. It’s no secret that Korn’s bass player is sick, but that night, he and the rest of his band members reminded the audience what years of experience sounds like. Yup… bad ass… that’s what it sounds like. Fieldy’s green and black gutiar was smokin’ with that deep, deep bass.
That night we also witnessed Zombie’s guitarist play the National Anthem with his mouth while American flags waved on the big screen!! No joke… that was tight. They also had a gutiar that was clear and filled with what seemed like fluorescent liquid and glow in the dark stuff. Korn’s rendition of Metallica’s “One” was also awesome. I don’t know, but we were jamming out up in there!
We had a straight blast. I embedded some concert footage off my YouTube channel on the post below. They are worth a watch. In the first clip, you’ll hear Rob Zombie talk about how when he and White Zombie broke up, Albuquerque was the first city he visited alone.
Until next time…
