We are going to start a series of articles that that involve YOU THE USER! We are very excited about our new series and hope that you all interact with the site and answer these questions for not only the memories that it will jog for you but also to share with the world! I have a very distinct story to tell in my answer and here it is!
Way back before I was married with 4 kids (yes 4) I was single and a little bit of a partier. I went to a Poison concert when they first re-united and we saw them at Pine Knob (DTE energy music theatre). We got lawn tickets and for anyone who doesn't know lawn is a big hill behind the main stage and seats. Here is a photo I found
Back then the hill was a tad steeper than it is now but nevertheless it played a part in my beer infested evening with 14 of my closest friends.! It all started at
630 in the parking lot with a couple cases of my favorite beer Bud Light. I probably had around 10 or so before the show. We used can coolers (so security couldn't do shit to us!) Mine was of the Red Wings and I still use it today! Anyways, we went into the show late and pretty much all the seats were taken but we found a nice little spot about 3/4 up the hill and took a seat with yet more beer now in the form of 22 oz. that cost us $6.50 a piece. The opening band was just about done so we figured we should slam these and go get a few more! We did and of course usede the restroom while we were down there. This is when the fun began! After two more 22's and the rain now pouring down the hill was mighty slick! After all of the consumption of Al co.Hal I had to piss again but I was very intoxicated. It was time for the adventure to begin! Poison was kicking ass on stage and was on my way across the mud filled hill. All of a sudden my feet were out from under me and I was sliding down the hill! Ohf**k I thought I hope my 220 lb. ass doesn't slide into some chic and kill her! l finally stopped sliding when the cement met my body and all I did was get up look up and notice that people were cheering for me! They thought I did it on purpose and more people started taking the same route! Me and my new muddy peeps went and got some more beer together and I made a few friends that night! Here is where the screwed up part starts. My ride frickin left me! This guy Jeff left me in the pouring rain (yes it still rained and rained hard the rest of the night!)Luckily for me this other guy said "yeah jump in the back of my truck I'll give ya a lift. But then I noticed another buddies car and ended up riding with them. The funny part was I didn't want to get their car all muddy so I got naked and sat in the back of the car with my buddies girlfriends sister. It was a fun night had by all but especially for me!
All right everyone, that was one of my concerts that remember fondly from the party days. Lets hear some stories! Lets hear the best time you had or the fondest memory of a band. If all goes well this series will continue weekly written by me for all of your comments and craziness. Let's hear some shit people! Don't be scared to share, I wasn't
