the homecoming / by jen geigley

I have followed this band for ten years. Bo used to play guitar with Mick when they were in high school. My friend's brother is Joey (the fastest drummer in the universe.) Sid lives just down the road from us. Last night, you could feel the craziness in the crowd and Corey said it himself – it was their homecoming show; we are their friends and their family. They started out small here in Des Moines, won Grammys, played sold out shows all over the world and now they're home. It was heavy and oh so effing beautiful.
