Jonny's personal fluffer
- Jun 24, 2003
OK My story. First off the Taping. I didn't win. Didn't have a ticket but got VIP escorted to the first row. Have you ever heard the expression, if you can't dazzle them with your brilliance, then baffle them with your bullshit? Yeah, that's me. I totally bullshitted my way into the show. Once in, I met up with Franksie first. He was walking about. We talked about last time they played how it was so hot at the festival right after the hurricane and I told him how I was at their show in Dallas when the storm hit my house and a tree fell on it. Coldplay literally saved my life. Next out was Phil I think. Talked to him for a bit. Then I saw Vicki and she came over and we talked for a while. She left and then came back with a prezzie. A singed poster for me. Mike begs her to get the poster he bought signed and she did it! This woman has the coolest job in the world and is just sweeter than sugar! The volunteers passed out the Icon t-shirts and told us when to put them on. We were so close. The sound in this venue is absolutely amazing. (Even up in the balcony for the Arcade Fire show, best sound system in a venue EVA!) When they lowered the as R#42 so apply described it, "neon space junk" back drop, Gwyneth came out to see it. She tried to muscle Mike off his spot, but he wasn't giving up his space.
