I cannot believe how I got to meet the Misfits, but here it is!
Once again, the KISS KRUISE made this possible.
A band named Diemonds played on KISS KRUISE 4 and I fell in love with their music! I kept in touch with the Canadian musicians through facebook and other social media! The lead singer of Diemonds was placed as lead singer in a band created by Jerry Only, originally called "She Demons" and later changed to "Hellfire Heart".
I saw that the Misfits were coming to Rochester NY the night prior to my 15th birthday (October 21st), and I also saw that Priya's new band was opening! I just had to go, and that just how I celebrated my 15th birthday! I was able to get a press pass to take pictures of Melia and Hellfire Heart, and then while I was in the pit, I saw Jerry and he told me I could stay for Misfits and that's how I was bale to get such awesome photos of the Misfits!
I met with Priya after the show, and I mentioned that it was almost my birthday, casually. She had mentioned to me Jerry would be out soon! I met Jerry through Priya, and she told him it was my birthday at midnight (this conversation happened about 25 minutes prior to midnight, so we had some time) and Jerry told me to get something at the merch table free as a birthday present from himself! After that, he told me and my mom to come backstage and wait for midnight to hit so he could sing me happy birthday right at midnight! (How fricken cool, right?) We sit down, and Jerry offered me some pizza, so I obviously said yes! I was shaking like crazy, cause I was super nervous, and then midnight hit, and I got sang too! It was incredible, to say at the least, and I hope Misfits make a return back here!
Special thanks to Priya Panda, Jerry Only (Sr.) and Jerry Other (Jr.)!
