February is BLACK HISTORY MONTH, to show honor I'm doing a series of BLACK ROCK HISTORY posts. Starting this out with Sevendust's frontman Lajon Witherspoon. Lajon was the first rockstar I encountered, meeting him backstage after a long meet & greet at X-FEST in Dayton, OH. He was nothing but cool, came over to me as I was just hanging backstage keeping an eye on our station banners. He spent 5 minutes just chilling & relaxing with me. That moment inspired me to get my septum pierced.
Sevendust will celebrate their 20th anniversary March 17th with a special show in Atlanta, playing their debut album in it's entirety. I'll be there for that, a few tickets remain. 7 hours south for Sevendust, it's gonna be magic.
