I love this story so much! I have been following, I just don't post as frequently.

Jason, one thing I can assure you is that it certainly meant a lot to the band. I don't know them personally, but I have friends that know them fairly well, and these are as classy a group of musicians you will ever meet. They are indeed genuine.

I am so happy for Jenson!

Nick

Thanks Nick, I guess they will see it and get a chuckle that an 8 yr old thinks they are the $hit!!!! Kinda funny cuz we listen to classic rock and my boys only know this type of music. My other sons favorite band is Iron Maiden......Personally I was just impressed talking to Pilson - I mean the dude did play in one of the best 80's bands and with argueably one of the greatest guitarists........it was like I was 16 again....hahaha

Wow! Now you will have not only a great memory but Jenson's recollections preserved for a lifetime.  Hope the band passes your way again soon.

I'm sure the band knows about the story, Jenson. They notice so many things we even don't.
In Germany there was a little boy - also around 9 or 10 - sitting on his dad's shoulders during a show. Mick's driver came into the audience to invite them backstage. And a picture was taken with Mick. Foreigner posted it on their FB site. Shows what great people they are, doesn't it?
