Big Mike’s Brad Love

Big Mike’s Brad Love

Edited by Nicole Drum, 3EB Expert Editorial

Well it all started in 1997---College in Des Moines Iowa. These girls said let's go see Third Eye Blind. I of course said Okay. I have never heard of them but Jumper came on ... I said, “I know these guys.” Instant love. Then let's jump to 2009 Iowa City...I found out about Assembly 3eb. So, I got connected. Just trying to talk to the band members. I asked for them to play “Blinded.” This was during a tough time in my life. Brad heard my shout out and said, “we will play that song for you.” I was very excited. I know they probably play that song anyway, but I was very excited that I got a response from Brad. I found out they were playing in Iowa City in October so I bought a ticket to go. I showed up for the concert and was walking passed the tour bus. Did not think much of it. And guess who walks out? Brad! And he said, “hi Big Mike.” I was in just shock. He shook my hand. He said, “I will see you later.” I was so pumped. Brad handed me an invite to an after-show party called JustBrad

So, after the concert. I went to go see Brad at JustBrad party. Brad came up to me and said, “hey what's up Big Mike,” and we talked then I asked if we could take a picture together. He said, “hell yes!” I was in rockstar shock at this time.

Then Omaha, 2015. I made sure to wear my JustBrad shirt so he would see me and he did. I saw him walk into his bus after soundcheck. And I was so bummed I did not buy VIP tickets. But all of sudden Brad walks out of his bus. Goes through a crowd of people and shakes my hand and says, “what's up Big Mike?” I got warm fuzzy butterflies in my stomach. I was like holy shit. Brad just walked passed a bunch of fans and came up to me and said hi! We talked for 20 minutes.

This made my day. Once this happened I knew that Brad and I would be friends for life. What amazing guy and friend to have.

Third Eye Blind is the song for those who fear to sing.

Third Eye Blind fills the void that others don't realize they have.
