Last Thursday, one of my favorite bands, Skillet returned to the Upstate for a show packed with fellow Christian rockers at Bon Secours Wellness Arena. The opening act, who happens to not only share the bill with Skillet but their label as well, dropped by the studio for a quick interview and acoustic tune. If you missed it, you can catch We As Human playing in the Planet studio here:
And, of course, I got a pic!
Later that night, Tessa and I took some friends of ours' kids to the show since they are both big Skillet fans. What they didn't know going in was that we were all going to the meet n greet with both Skillet AND Third Day!
As I said earlier, We As Human opened the show followed by former American Idol contestant Mandisa for an interesting mix in the lineup! Third Day was next for a little country rock flavor followed by former Newsboys frontman Peter Furler then Skillet to tear it down at the end of the night!
With yesterday being April Fools' Day, I thought it would be fun to switch places with Diesel for a day and have both of us pretend to be the other. I was inspired by Drew Carey and Craig Ferguson who did the same on CBS with Ferguson hosting "The Price is Right" and Carey filling in on "The Late Late Show". Needless to say we had a lot of fun making fun of each other as Diesel portrayed me as an angry little elf or dwarf or whatever and I played the bonehead gymnut. Good times!
This morning I was in Chesnee, SC for a career day at Rainbow Lake Middle School corrupting the youth of the Upstate! I always enjoy working with adolescents and teens so it was good to get to do that and take a break from the office.
After yesterday and this morning, I am trying to get back into my usual TWISTED routine! Back to the airwaves....as MYSELF today!
