took this video on the way into work this morning. #betherevival was playing on the radio, the sun was shining for the first time in at least a week & the day looked promising! i only caught the tail end of the song, so on my drive home i played it. while listening to it, a wealth of emotion came over me and i instantly started crying. its been a real rough 8 months or so for me and the song really hit home. i met Brandon last year on mother's day, though i wasnt able to stay and see him play because i had a 5 hour drive home, and kids that needed to be up for school the next morning. he sat and chatted with me for a minute or two as it was early in the day, hours before he was to go on stage, and there werent many people in the bar yet. i didn't want to ask for a picture with him because my hair wasnt done up. then a few months later he played just 6 miles from my house. i didn't make that show either, because i didn't want to go by myself! .... when i was blindsided with emotion this afternoon, unbeknownst to me, it was right about the time his family posted the news that he passed. he's always been one of my favorite artist and i regret never making the time to see him live. something i was looking forward to doing, even if alone & with my hair all a mess, when he recovered! my heart truly breaks for this one. my thoughts and love are with his wife, mother and family!! gonna suck not scrolling through and seeing his post anymore. gonna suck not getting a new album to listen to every couple years. it sucks!! .
he had open heart surgery last week. it didnt go as planned and he'd been in critical condition since. though he's gone on his family is faced with a fuckton of medical bills im sure. if you can, his paypal is listed in my bio, there's fund raisers all over, t-shirts, benefit concerts, even a Masiconic coin. or simply buy his music, its good shit!!!
