Cd’s, Ipods, youtube etc. are somewhat lacking. It is seeing David in the flesh onstage that our adrenaline flow is at its flowing best … sweat glands working overtime but happily welcomed … and the thumping or our hearts true and real.
Having David’s bigger-than-life presence at such close proximity … witnessing Live his perspiration drip, wishing we could wipe his brow for him 😉 … watching him kick up his angel dust from under his dancing feet and having it scatter all over our faces and hair in the mosh pit … savouring his smiles so infectious … cheering him on with the ear-piercing shrill voices we never knew we had … jumping tirelessly and waving our arms so ferociously until they almost part company with the rest of our bodies … yelling David! David! to let him know his name like he had forgotten it … and emotionally joining him in a bond of love, music and compound exercises … sigh … that’s the essence of life for an Archie!
How I miss the whole total freakin’ H I G H !!
Besides, it is not just totally about being in the zone of his presence or romanticising about him being in the same room as us and phew! breathing in the same oxygen as he! It is only 99.999% about him 😉 I miss my archu-concert pals too, the archu-comraderie – the frantic rush in preparation: the hourly emails … the sms’es and phonecalls which never seem to stop … planning, strategizing, scheming, plotting and mapping towards a mutual path for a mass David-onslaught!
How can we forget the pulsating tremors of these David-get-togethers?
It looks like we really really need another Asian tour! I hope we do not have to wait too long.
Oh well, back to good ole Youtube and our other devices then. Let’s resort to this song today before we die of thirst for a Live Concert. How about this one made by our own dear beloved AAM’er Boo Radleigh.
