So last week we heard from Sebastien about the first concert he ever attended. This week we have Jeff's response straight from his BlackBerry to your eyes, check it out:

"The first real rock show I saw was Aerosmith when around 15. My parents wouldn't allow me to see shows before that age and I had to get really amazing grades in class to get permission to go. I went with my best friend and this weird band called Jackyl were opening for them. Their claim to fame was a chainsaw solo during one of their songs. Needless to say, I was very confused and didn't know what to think about what I was seeing. They didn't exactly correspond to the idea I had of a good band. Luckily for me, when Aerosmith came on, they were amazing and really lived up to my expectations. I had seen tons of live shows in TV but nothing compares to a real band playing in front of you while you're surrounded by thousands of people who are loving the same songs as you do. The energy level was incredible and Joe Perry, their lead guitarist, really inspired me to do my homework on guitar.
I knew so many of their songs and had a blast. It really raised the bar for a rock show for years to come."
