How was when you first met The Strokes?Posted by Iuellen on August 15, 2013 at 2:51 pm
Hi everyone, my name is Iuellen, I am 20 years old (until 18th August, then I am going to be 21). I am a brasilian girl, from Sao Paulo. I am learning English this year, so sorry for the grammar mistakes, I hope you guys can understand everything that I am going to say (I know that this is going to be a long text,sorry for that too) But I really need to share my feelings about The Strokes. I am a person who likes music,good music... different kinds of music, I can listen Bob Marley, Guns n' Roses, REM...Debussy, Cartola....and there are a few bands that I don't like,but I like one or two songs by them. I never had an Idol, an favorite band, or someone that I want to see in a concert (And I never have been in a concert), never felt this need. Till I met The Strokes. And I met The Strokes in the last week. I mean, I had heard a few songs by them, but maybe I don't was with the spiritual state to recognize how incredible they are. Last week, in the morning I was having my breakfast, and my older brother, he was watching a video music channel (THANKS GOD), was passing LAST NITE....and do you know that incredible feeling of let some song get in under your skin? I did this, I was feeling every peace of the song under my skin, feeling the guitar,the bass,the drums..Julian's voice, and this full me with such a huge happiness. I went to work with the song in my mind. Then I start to search the band in internet, to listen to they songs...and we are in 2013, there are lots and lots of things about The Strokes, ...lots of interview in magazines, videos of interviews....5 albums..5 years of break, lot of gossips, personal careers. Criticals. Drug's problem. Alcohol's problem. Marriages. Childrens. Oh man...many things... and I say this with a huge smile. When you are passionate by someone or something, you want to know everything about them. ThanKS God we have INTERNET. Oh and thanks to The Strokes Brazil's website, they translated almost everything that has of the band. The Band started this so young, I mean..they had my age when the band started. I heard all the albums, and I like all the albums, maybe I like one more than other, but i LOVE the Strokes. haha...I know everyone's name, when I listen to the band's song, I can notice what everyone do in the song. Oh man, this is so new for me. Have this feeling for a band. I love THE STROKES It's the first time in my life that I can say this. They are my idols, all of them...Julian,Nik,Fabrizio,Nikolai,Albert...I felt glad to read, and to see how they improved as musicians, and as persons. They started as boys...now I have so much pride of who they become I saw interviews when they were just boys, and I saw the last interviews...oh God.. I couldn't have better Idols. I didn't felt the expectations of your firsts fans, when you just started. You know,like waiting for a new album, waiting for a concert...when you did the break.... But I just want to say Thank you The Strokes, thanks for let me go to another level of listen to music. Music will never be the same. I wish to you guys a long life,I hope you can share your music with us for a long time. Hope you guys stay strong and together, all of you are great musician, your personal career can say this, and together you all are the Best. And please Come to Brazil again...and if you don't come, I will do everything to see you guys alive before I die. And to all the others Strokes fans, i want to know how you felt in love for this awesome and band...Please share with me your feelings about theses guys and they music. I could pass the whole day just talking about them. Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaah man, this feeling is better than anything. The Strokes rocks!!
