"I Just wanted to talk to you about what this music really is, and what is really happening up here. well here is this idiot talking on the microphone, my shirt looks like bogus, my music is incredibly important to me, I love the way it sounds.
I love the words of songs, I listened to lyrics when I was growing up, from all these different bands. I love the state of this music right now, if there's anyone in this world that is thinking about starting a band, it's incredible you should do it.
It's taken me around the world and I know it wasn't the plan for this band, it started in a garage and I just wanted to say what was on my mind and I think that's what's important. As long as you were being genuine and asking yourself questions, heart to heart questions as long as you're asking your peers questions and demanding more from the world than this music will always be alive. The second you take meaning away from this music it just turns into pop music and we don't need anymore of that" The fans loved this message and were cheering throughout the whole announcement, it really brought the crowd together
