One of the things Dad and I have always loved about touring, is some of the great people we get to meet
Hearing their stories
Without sounding cheesy, it’s really cool sometimes, to hear about WHO the people are that come to the shows.
Last night we got to meet Tim, for the second time
Tim came to the show the last time we were in St Albans, in 2009
On that day 3 years ago, he had also been laid off from his job
When Dad asked him at the time what he did, he answered, “…as of today, I am unemployed”
Dad said, “…if you could be doing anything, what would you do? Where would you like to be in 5 years?”
They went on to have a quick chat about what Tim would like to do – and said goodbye with Dad telling him to, “go for it”
Tim lined up (for over an hour) last night, just to tell Dad thank you
He said that conversation 3 years ago, gave him the motivation to move on and move up
He now owns and runs (very successfully) his own small business
Dad thanked Tim for sharing his story, he loved hearing it. And reminded Tim while their chat may have spurred something in him, it was Tim that did all the hard work, and he should be proud of himself.
Well fucking done Tim.
Almost as much as Dad loved the lady after Tim
