Soundgarden Bound

We've been working hard but finished off the month by having some fun at a Soundgarden concert. I'm so tired with the long hours we're putting in at the office but the show was at a local arena and let's face it, it was Soundgarden with hot, Chris Cornell, whom I still love just as much as I did in the 80' and 90's. My husband surprised me with the tickets but I know he wanted to go as much as I did. Ben Shepherd, Soundgarden's drummer, is ridiculously good. My husband, a drummer himself, wouldn't miss the opportunity to dig on some rolls along with a crowd full of other apparent drummer dad's banging the air at the show.

Soundgarden being total dude music, the place was filled with guys in their 40's along with a generous sprinkling of girls in the crowd. However, like he did so often back in the day, a girl could only hope that Chris would take his shirt off during the show. I love Soundgarden's music. For me, the original Soundgarden tunes transcend time and today, they're still writing and producing music with validity. I have a few of my favorite Soundgarden tunes on my iPod along with some Temple of the Dog.

Grunge was an amazing musical era that marks my generation right down to the clothes we wore and still covet in the bottom or our dresser drawers. I even pulled out my combat boots, since "stolen" by my oldest son who wears the same size, for this event which looked cute as ever with my skinny jeans and pinup girly top. I bought those boots 20 years ago at the Army Navy store. My husband donned the ripped jeans and rock t-shirt look which is not far off from his daily attire today and looks great on him. He still has the rockin' body he had twenty years ago.

Funny enough I knew my husband in the 90's. We were friends but never dated back then. My best friend and I hung out with him and his friend at clubs every weekend with all our other friends. We were the live version of the movie #Singles, seeing a different band every night.

My best friend and my husband's friend ended up getting married. My husband and I were in their wedding party. My husband looked like Chris Cornell's twin back then with sexy, long brown locks and a darkness behind his beautiful eyes. A few years later, we all went on and became working, socially functioning adults and saw less and less on each other. I still kept in touch with my bestie and her hubby but my husband lost touch with all of us. 

On my 30th birthday, my two best girlfriends took me out for drinks. We walked into one of our old stomping grounds for a final cocktail before going home to our real lives. My one friend and I walked straight to the bar and lost our other friend, the one who married, along the way. When we found her, she was talking to my now husband, our friend from 10 years prior, the Chris Cornell look alike, who unfortunately for her, just broke up with his girlfriend and was free for the taking...as was I.

Well, we were married a few years later. And, after many years of blissful marriage, we're still chasing grunge and rock together. The only difference is now we also dress our kids in rock baby clothes. So, Chris Cornell, if you ever want someone to sell Soundgarden baby one pieces and kids t-shirts, let us know.

True Talent Resonates. There were a lot of people moving around the room to get to the bar and bathroom, I assume. It felt very reminiscent of being in a club back in the day. People were watching Billy Idol play and singing along, talking among one another and just enjoying the atmosphere.
