WINNER OF THE FREE TICKET TO SEE SOUNDGARDEN IN LOS ANGELES CONTEST

WINNER OF THE FREE TICKET TO SEE SOUNDGARDEN IN LOS ANGELES CONTEST

The winner of the free Mezzanine ticket to Soundgarden’s show this Saturday at the Wiltern in Los Angeles is Julz. Thanks to everybody who entered, most of you had very good stories.

Julz’ story:

I was a typical angst ridden teen in the 90′s. Always quiet, never really talked to a lot of people. I met this one girl with purple hair cut in a bob and we sorta connected. She said “here, listen to these” and gave me a stack of CD’s. So over one weekend in the summer of 93′, I listened to these albums. Temple of the Dog, Badmotorfinger, Louder than Love etc. I was hooked. Nothing else I’d ever heard before truly channeled the feelings I’d had. At the time, again I was 14 or so, I felt like I couldn’t connect with anyone or anything. Soundgarden’s music changed that for me. I’ve been a diehard fan ever since. I’ve seen them in concert only 3 times. I have every B-Side. I used to buy Rip, Spin and any other magazine that they were in and tore out articles and pictures of the band. At first the pix would end up on my wall, but soon ran out of room. Now they’re all in an old, decrepit photo album. A scrap book if you will, of all things SG. In chronological order. I also have a SG tattoo, although not quite sure how to upload it. Anyway, thanks for letting me share my story.

    This is such a cool thing for the site to do. This site seems to be getting better and better, despite all the whining.

    PS: Anyone notice Matt Cameron looks a little like Steve Nash?
