Hey AB Nation!

(1.) How did you discover Alter Bridge?
I first heard "Open Your Eyes" on an old Madden NFL game and said gosh this sounds a lot like Creed but who is this singer? Also, I was a huge Edge/WWE and when I heard "Metalingus" as his theme, I didn't make the connection. Once I put two and two together I had to pick up One Day Remains. The rest is history.

(2.) What is the meaning of the username you chose?
Just picked something quick; first name, last initial, birth year. Simple.

(3.) How do you spend your free time?
Hanging out with my girlfriend. Trying to get her into AB, haha.

(4.) What is the name of one other band you enjoy other than AB?
I'm really enjoying Young Guns's new album, Echoes at the moment.

(5.) What is the title of the last movie you watched?
Not really into movies, music is more my entertainment medium.

(6.) What is something about you that even your closest friends don't know?
When I'm alone, I try to sing like Myles. It's rough, haha.

(1.) How did you discover Alter Bridge? I made friends with a chap from school, and whilst sat bored out of our minds in Maths class, we got talking about music. I told him that I loved Creed, and he said, well if you love Creed, you'll love Alter Bridge. And so began my love and obsession with Alter Bridge. This was back in 2005.
(2.) What is the meaning of the username you chose? rjiparsons = Ross John Ian Parsons...my birth names.
(3.) How do you spend your free time? I try and attempt to play golf!
(4.) What is the name of one other band you enjoy other than AB? Daughtry
(5.) What is the title of the last movie you watched? The Martian
(6.) What is something about you that even your closest friends don't know? To be honest, I cannot think of anything that my closest friends don't already know!

Just a bit of a background for me! I'm Ross, I'm 26 years old from England! I have been an Alter Bridge fan since 2005 and haven't looked back since! I have been to 3 shows so far, my first being at Bristol Colston Hall, where I saw them play Burn It Down for the first time in Europe (or so they said at the time). The following two times have been at Wembley, on the 2011 tour (the filmed show) and Wembley for the 2013 Fortress tour. I am going to my forth show on Sunday, in Birmingham, and I'm taking my fiancé with me! This will be the first time she has seen them live, and she is super excited! My favourite Alter Bridge song is, much like others I'm sure, Blackbird! It quickly became my favourite song just after the album came out, simply for the awesome solos and lyrics. Sadly, my Grandad passed away 2 years ago, which made my connection to the song even stronger, but it also made it very difficult to listen to the song. However I have become more used to listen to it and it brings back the thoughts of my Grandad when I do, so that's not a bad thing. Not sure how I'm going to cope hearing it live for the first time since he passed on Sunday, but we shall see! I am the proud owner of the Alter Bridge X box-set (after it EVENTUALLY arrived...don't get me started) and that is something that will be passed down to my little one when she grows up, and then to be passed on again after that! I have been viewing these forums for some time now, but today have decided to register and say hello! You are all so knowledgeable about the band and it's a pleasure to read your comments, thoughts and opinions every time I poke my head round the forums!

Nice to meet you all!

Hi everybody, I just joined. I'm as big a fan as anybody.
I only listen to 2 groups. You can probably guess which 2.
But I only been to one concert, and that was in St Pete, FL.
I caught a flying drumstick from Scott Phillips, with an Alter Bridge logo on it.
That's my claim to fame.
I only hope and pray that Myles takes care of his voice, so he can hit those high notes for the rest of my lifetime.
I also hope they do more touring in the U.S., as opposed to Europe.

Heyy guys! I'm very new in this fandom, I have been AB's fan since 2005 but I haven't joined the forum 'till today :facepalm :facepalm

1. I discover Alter Bridge in 2005 when I was 11 years old when a local Indonesian radio played Broken Wings than I felt if it was such a call to know this band better. So I bought ODR as my very first album and keep being loyal with buying their albums until now when I already in my 4th year of University. I have not joined any ABNation here because I don't know if there is any in Indonesia and I'm going to move to Europe soon so I'm looking forward to attending their concerts and maybe meet some of the fans. It's true tho that they have been changing people's live with their music, and I am one of them for sure :peace

2. My username is my name, and it means "love" nothing more nothing less.

3. I usually spend my free time with baking, hanging out with my friends, reading books, singing or watching movies. People who know me will not believe if I like AB so much because I am not a typical "rock fans", but who cares about what they'd say :yes

4. I really enjoy Muse, Imagine Dragon, OneRepublic, and The Script for bands. I like Ed Sheeran for a solo musician. See, from my other taste people won't expect if I am such a big fan of AB :D

5. 22/11/63 - I just watch this series because it was not available here.

6. They don't know the motivation behind my dream to participate in strategic studies and conflict resolution; It is because the courage that I have found in AB songs since I was little until now. The suffering that has never ended in this world and myself made me promise to become someone that will be useful in this world to make things better. :peace

I adore Myles so much :mkrules because basically I always adore great singers and can't wait to see the band live on stage :rockon See you around guys! :cheers
