Billy Corgan "Meets" My Son :)

WOW - this is one fun thing to share, I am so jazzed.  My son hasn't even heard about this yet!

Here is the story:  First of all, Keven's favorite band is Smashing Pumpkins.  He thinks Billy Corgan is "the man" and he indentifies with him because of some of the things Billy shares about his life that Kev can relate to.

So....the other day two of Keven's friends go to see Billy's solo band, and in honor of Keven not being there they made a sign that said "Free Keven". ( I smiled at this because its kind of cute but it makes him sound like he's in jail unfairly - he's certainly not!)

Well they kept holding up the sign and Billy finally says, "Okay, who's Keven and what's the story?" and proceeded to have a conversation with Andrew about Keven while Matt filmed the whole thing on his cell phone!!! 

So imagine it - your favortie musician (in my case lets use Bruce) is up in front of a crowd at a concert having a conversation about you - even though you aren't there to hear it - but its all caught on tape.  Keven will DIE! 

So tomorrow Andrew and Matt are going to surprise Keven with a visit (this is a first so far only family has gone to see him).  He is going to FREAK OUT in HAPPINESS to see them and then he will GO INSANE to hear the story I just shared! 

I LOVE IT!!!  I am so happy that my son is going to have such a great visit!  I can barely stand it!!  I had just sent him about five Smashing Pumpkin songs (lyrics only) the other day.  They aren't allowed music but he reads the lyrics and can hear it in his head.

I am waiting for the video to be transferred to YouTube, you KNOW I'll post it here!  (FYI, Keven is doing well and may be out next week to receive the help he needs.  He is not a criminal, he's a drug addict.  Unfortunately being an addict often turns one into a criminal)

I can't wait to hear about Keven's reaction. It's such a rush when we can do something totally amazing for our kids. It's what makes a mom's heart want to burst for joy. Let me know when you post that on You Tube.

That's really awesome! Perhaps this will be a push for Keven to get on the straight and narrow again.

This is wonderful news and I so hope it cheers Keven up...

not being allowed music in jail has got to be the worst all all punishments possible, cruel to the nth degree
