Seven years ago today - DESTROYED WITH MATT PIKE. Fuck I can't believe how fast time goes by but anyway - a story of this legendary evening.

I was 21 years old and a big show was coming to town. High on Fire, Kylesa and Torche. This was a really big deal to my buddies and I. Why? Obviously because the lineup was ridiculous but also because this was happening in our area. Not NYC, not Boston, my area, Northampton, 15 mins from my house. Where I went to high school. We'd get good shows on occasion but THAT lineup? In 2010? Damn.

You know, I wanted to try and make a post to adequately describe this evening but it's just not possible so I will try to spew random memories with some cohesiveness. We hung out with Matt and the crew both before and after the gig in a completely deserted bar and literally drained its entire supply of Jameson. Much fun was had, but what I would like to point out is that Matt was the absolute nicest, funniest dude to a group of KIDS.

We were all kids, all of us having just turned 21 that year and some of us not even of age to be in the bar. Matt could've told us to fuck off, they were on tour and surely exhausted, having just played a killer set that night. But instead he did the opposite, treating us like old friends.

Matt schooled me on the road and what it's like to drive around in a shitty van for 20 fucking years. He dropped a lot of knowledge on me that day about being a lifer and what it takes to survive in music.

He told us stories about taking acid and hiking mountains in Colorado in his youth, stories about the early days with Sleep. We laughed at how much Peyton Manning looks like a complete dork. We talked about guitar pedals and gear. I could go on forever.

But to sum it up - I think the photo speaks for itself. Fucking gone. A night I'll never forget, one that my friends and I still speak of on a regular basis. We'd never hung out with someone like Matt. I'll always love this dude for treating us like equals & of course, for the countless crushing riffs he has driven into my brain over the years
