Manchester - thank you Jacoby

What an amazing gig. Definitely one of the best I've been to. The VIP was well worth it and great fun, as well as really personal for me.

When I met the guys, Coby asked about my tattoo, which is dedicated to James, my mate who recently passed away. I explained the story to him, and he noticed the lyrics on it from March Out of the Darkness, which is the song that got me through a lot when James was in hospital.

During the gig, when March came on, Coby pointed me out and gave me a bow of respect. I couldn't stop myself from crying through the song, it was really moving and incredible to hear the song live. At the end Coby put his hand to his chest and mouthed 'that was for you' to me, which was just plain incredible.

I spoke to him after the gig where we had a good chat about the gig. He told me how he felt what I was feeling, and how we had an energy during the song, and we talked about my mate and friends Coby had lost in the past. Eventually we hugged, and that was it.

Just amazing. Thank for so much Papa Roach, and particularly Jacoby for caring so much about your fans, and for making that day and that song so special for me. You didn't need to pick me out of all the fans to make me know you cared, but you did, and I feel fantastic for it. I love you guys, I can't wait to see you perform again on Wednesday

    Thats fuckin awsome dude and seriously my deepest condolence about James I know there's really nothin I could say to make you feel better but this , he's in a better place than this earth so DON'T morn him that much! So you keep that moment with Jacoby in your mind and heart and your James will stay alive with you always. So when you listen to March Out Of The Darkness you will always live that moment!! I know that you don't really know me and all but I lost someone really important to me when I was young and it took me so long to cope the my tragedy until an old friend spoke words like this to me. With that I really hope these words will help you as much as they have helped me.

    Plus it must help that Jacoby sang that song to you cause if he had did that for me I think I would have got over it quick but things happen for a reason. lol
