As I'm sure a lot of people know, anyone can add you as a friend on YouTube, send you messages, or subscribe to your videos. Yesterday, I got a message from a band called First Class College, asking me to please listen to one of their songs. Normally, I ignore such messages, but I felt like listening to their song, "Closer To You". I listened to it, and it was quite impressive. I decided to write them back, and tell them so. I also asked for an interview. I figured they'd say thanks but no thanks. That was far from the case.
I got up to a message this morning, thanking me for being so kind to them, and agreeing to it! They couldn't be more pleased, I don't think. They even suggested answering the questions on camera, and putting the video up on their YouTube page.
Can you see why I'm excited? This is awesome! So I quickly thought up some questions for them, and sent them to them. I'm not sure how long it'll be until I get a response. I told them there's no rush, and on top of that, there's a huge time difference. Did I menton the live in Austria? I can't get over that, an band in another country, with who knows how many American fans, agreed to an interview with me!
I know I should be professional about this, and for the most part I am, but hey its awesome! Who knew YouTube would actually be useful for something other than curing boredum or self-help videos? I had never thought about it before, but I could totally try to talk to other bands this way too. I know Memphis May Fire added me on there weeks ago. Maybe I could attempt to talk to them as well? That would be an even bigger deal, seeing as they're actually very popular and all.
Can't be more thrilled at the moment. Thank you again, Adrian, Max, Alex, Julian, and Domi, if you ever see this! I appericate it. Oh, I feel I should mention this, as you'll probably be happy about it. If I ever manage, your interview will be shown to a music magazine over here in the states called Alternative Press magazine. :) I probably should have mentioned that in my message, huh?
