My guess, Yac was still pitching himself playing his omnichord with them. :wink:

hahahah i think he gave up with that one and just was excited to meet them. Either way, Johnny will never tell! hahahah I already tried! but i think he just said thank you for everything you do as a band and that we love them, is what I would guess.

We waited near the VIP lounge after the show, where Eric Mayers came to get us. He led us down a hallway and asked us to wait.

A few minutes later, the guys came out, all cleaned up from the show and in their street clothes. We hugged, I introduced Dan (Hawkeye), then thanked Jim for the support they gave me when I was sick. Told him about how coming out of life support fucked with my head such that their music didn't sound right at first and i also had trouble seeing colors. Thankfully, a few days later, I was able to enjoy music again.

I thanked Tom, said hi to his wife, and told him my wife loves watching him when she goes to a show. I asked Carl if rumors of a break up had any relationship to reality. He assured me they do not. Got a big hug from Patrick and thanked him for the band's kindness and asked him how his mom was doing.

I reminded Bo of our first meeting, in Portland, ME on October 16, 2010. He thought it was when I ran into the band (minus Tom) at Mountain Jam, but we realized that was the following June. I was impressed he remembered.

A little more small talk with each of the guys, then we were shooed away by Eric Mayers, who was trying to herd the guys to the next thing. It was about 20 minutes or so.
Close enough!

Oh, there's a lot of fog in my recollection, but the above is my best account. I have no idea what Hawkeye was up to, kind of had blinders on. Spent most of my time talking with Jim, as I'd never really had a chance to speak with him before. Glad Eric Mayers offered to take a picture to remind me this actually happened!

That's so awesome Yac.  Thanks for sharing.  And very nice of Eric to suggest and get the photo.  Very special night.   I'm sure Dan was beyond stoked.  I don't know if you are aware but an usher came up to Dan worried about his well being (I think it was night 1), but he was fine and resting.

this night was so epic.... 2 hours and 35 minutes of Jacket primal fury. Everything was so impeccable. The first night steals it as my favorite, the second is second and the third is third but I love them all for so many different reasons. My Itunes shows that I listen the most to the NYE night, then barely below that in plays is the 12/29 show, basically was my dream setlist, minus a few bells and whistles but the meat of the thing was everything i needed as a Jacket fan who'd only seen them twice before this Denver experience.

I will never forget it.
I am so glad I said fuck you to my work and got it pushed through.
I don't even work at that liquor store anymore so I'm glad i didn't sacrifice this shit for just some dumb job.

Words cannot describe.
But i'm so glad Pat Myers is alive
To film this band's magic powers
Ruling the stage for hours and hours
the band
the people in the band
the boys in the band
do it and do it again
on rock and roll command
good god damn
what a band
love these fans
