Sevendust: Headed To The Grammys!

I first saw Sevendust open for Creed in 2002. Ever since I have been a huge fan and the band is my favorite “underrated band”. I am so glad they are nominated for a Grammy this year because I want more hard rock fans out there to love them as much as I do.

I first meet the band in 2006 when they headlined a sold out show at the House of Blues in San Diego. Unfortunately they have not headlined a show in San Diego since. In 2011 I hung out with the band on the Shiprocked cruise. On this cruise, founding member Vince Hornsby nicked named me “San Diego”. During one of the Sevendust shows on the ship Vince gave me one of Morgan Rose’s drumsticks which I unfortunately lost later that night in the casino.

During both times I meet the band I learned that not only are they fantastic musicians but really nice, down to earth guys. I even got to meet Lajon Witherspoon’s wife who is super nice too.  There couldn’t be a better group to win at the Grammy’s this Monday. I have my fingers crossed!
