Text 27 Mar Amaryllis Day

It’s been two years now since Brent, Barry, Zach and Eric gave that wonderful gift to me, their album Amaryllis that hit me so hard, it changed my whole life within a minute because I couldn’t do anything but fall in love with it. Without these four men, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. And even if no one understands it, this is nothing but the truth. They inspired me to write a book, to live my creativity and they taught me always to be honest with myself. They taught me to be strong; because I am never alone. They are always with me, they and the music and this rock’n’roll family, and I always have them having my back. They brought me to other bands and people who inspire me, people like Lzzy Hale and bands like Zico Chain. They taught me values and ways to be and I took them and made them real and I’m doing well with that. This love is not easy to explain, but so easy to see.

I don’t like to be usual.

I won’t be delicate. I will be vast and brilliant.

Happy Amaryllis Day! Always keep loving and supporting each other.

Text 4 Dec Avril Lavigne feat. Chad Kroeger - Let Me Go

Love that once hung on the wall
Used to mean something, but now it means nothing
The echoes are gone in the hall
But I still remember, the pain of December

Oh, there isn’t one thing left you could say
I’m sorry it’s too late

I’m breaking free from these memories
Gotta let it go, just let it go
I’ve said goodbye
Set it all on fire
Gotta let it go, just let it go

You came back to find I was gone
And that place is empty, like the hole that was left in me
Like we were nothing at all
It’s not what you meant to me
Thought we were meant to be

Oh, there isn’t one thing left you could say
I’m sorry it’s too late

I’m breaking free from these memories
Gotta let it go, just let it go
I’ve said goodbye
Set it all on fire
Gotta let it go, just let it go

I let it go (and now I know)
A brand new life (is down this road)
And when it’s right (you always know)
So this time (I won’t let go)

There’s only one thing left here to say
Love’s never too late

I’ve broken free from those memories
I’ve let it go, I’ve let it go
And two goodbyes, led to this new life
Don’t let me go, don’t let me go

Don’t let me go, don’t let me go, don’t let me go, don’t let me go

Won’t let you go, don’t let me go

Text 2 Dec Shinedown needs to be played more often on German radio!

                        With the release of their first album “Leave A Whisper” in 2003, Shinedown started their career as a rock band. Since then they created three more studio albums. Their latest CD “Amaryllis”, published in 2012, which declared the “rise of Rock’N’Roll” as front man Brent Smith said, brought them to international success. Shinedown has to be played more on German radio stations as their lyrics are always meaningful, the band members are great personalities and they stay in close contact to their fans.

                        Firstly, Shinedown needs to be played more often on the German radio because all their songs contain meaningful lyrics. They always deal with important topics and convey meaningful messages, which affect and touch the listener. Often, they criticize society, as the songs “What A Shame” and “Nowhere Kids” show. This makes the audience think about nowadays’ problems more thoroughly. Some songs also deal with topics that affect people personally and try to make the listener stronger. With their song “Bully” which deals with bullying and how to fight it, they try to show the audience a way out of this misery and encourage them to stand up for themselves. With all these songs which are meaningful and convey important messages, Shinedown turns out to be a great rock band which has to be presented on the German radio more often.

                        The fact that all the band members are strong personalities explains how good the band is and therefore also makes clear why it has to be brought into public in Germany more effectively. The members are all talented. Eric, the bassist, plays three instruments and sings. Also, they have great characteristics, such as being funny, kind and strong. They try to never give up. That way, singer Brent Smith lost seventy pounds of weight and got over a drug problem. Today, he helps others with his songs, teaching them that life is worth living. At every concert, he explains why he keeps on fighting and how, by living his dream and being a rock musician, and he encourages his fans to be strong. The strong characters of the band members, who are funny, strong and always try to help their fans, are another reason to like this band and also to play them more often on German radio.

                        Moreover, they are a band that always finds time to stay in close contact with their fans which is another reason why German radio stations need to help them rise over here in Germany. The band often does “Q&A” on Twitter of Facebook or finds other ways to chat with their fans. They give feedback for blogs their fans write and just answer as many questions as they can. Also, they meet their fans personally at their concerts where they sign CDs and talk to the people. Last year in London, they offered a CD signing and hugged all the people who came to meet them. The fact that their fans are so important for them and that they care for the people that much also explains why the need to be made more popular in Germany via radio.

                        As shown before, Shinedown has all the attributes a good rock band needs. They write and perform songs with a deep meaning and are all great characters. Due to the close contact they have, they help their fans through hard times. As the will gain a lot of attention over here and will then come for more concerts, German radio stations have to play more Shinedown songs to make the band more popular.
