Saturday, February 19, Jack Leto celebrated his 70th Birthday and the only wish he had was that Rye Coalition play for his birthday.
Honestly, I should have come up with this idea on my 40th. I'm jealous I didn't think of it.
So me & a few friends headed to Maxwell's in Hoboken for the sold out show and me being the genius I am forgot earplugs. My ears are still ringing.
The show was amazing. I don't know if there has ever been a better live show. These guys haven't played together in five years, but the energy - the enthusiasm and the talent was overwhelming. I still can't believe I get to know these people and get to call them friends. Amazing night. Happy Birthday, Mr. Leto. I hope to be as cool as you one day. 70 yrs old in the mosh pit and I had to stand back against the wall for fear of getting hit. You sir, are a legend.
