Iron Maiden is in India at the moment. They will be performing at the Palace Grounds in Bangalore to, oh I would guess, round about 40,000 lucky motherfuckers in attendance. There will be local Bangaloreans and people from all over Karnataka. There will be Tamilians. There will be Malayalees. There will be Telugus, Maharashtrians, Punjabis, Rajasthanis, Goans. There will be people from Mizoram, Manipur & Assam. There will be people from all the different states & cultures that make up India.
But I will not be there! I will not fucking be there! I really want to be there! I will kill to be there! I almost got free tickets! Yes, free fan-fucking-tastic tickets to go and see the legends of rock! But it didn’t work out in the end since we have to work and just couldn’t get the required leave. The guy who was trying to get me & him tickets also has to work. So, we are stuck here and a lifetime chance will go by us since there is practically no chance of Maiden coming down to play in Cochin or anywhere in Kerala. I played Iron Maiden songs all morning to try and cheer myself up.
Song for the day – “Only The Good Die Young” – IRON MAIDEN
