    Default Andrew meets Zack De La Rocha, confirms RATM for Coachella

    This was Friday night, the 12th.

    BBALLARL (12:21:06 AM): okay heres the story
    BBALLARL (12:21:21 AM): me and my 3 friends were mini golfing at the glow-in-the-dark golf at the bridge
    BBALLARL (12:21:36 AM): and one of my friends bought an icee, so i suggested we get slurpees
    BBALLARL (12:21:41 AM): cause it sounded good
    BBALLARL (12:22:04 AM): so we drive to the one on washington and lincoln, and i fill up the slurpee or whatev, and am walking over to get gummi worms
    BBALLARL (12:22:30 AM): and i see this guy and girl walk in, and i look at the guys face (he had his hood on over his head) and immediately think "thats fucking zack de la rocha"
    BBALLARL (12:22:32 AM): )*
    strokesoco (12:22:42 AM): ;p;
    strokesoco (12:22:44 AM): lol
    BBALLARL (12:22:57 AM): and so i walk over to my friends and say "i think thats zack de la rocha from ratm"
    BBALLARL (12:23:14 AM): and they know the band but not him and dont give a shit cause they listen to lil wayne and terrible terrible music
    BBALLARL (12:23:38 AM): so i walk over to pretend t o get something again, and we both get to the line at the same time
    BBALLARL (12:23:49 AM): and i think for a sec if i should ask, and decide to
    strokesoco (12:23:55 AM): hehehe
    BBALLARL (12:24:01 AM): and so i said "excuse me...are you zack de la rocha"
    BBALLARL (12:24:11 AM): and he half-smiles and says "i am, i am"
    BBALLARL (12:24:20 AM): and i get this big douchey grin on my face and kind of freeze
    BBALLARL (12:24:33 AM): btw, i want you to copy and paste this convo so people dont think im bullshitting in a few weeks
    strokesoco (12:24:33 AM): HAH
    strokesoco (12:24:41 AM): hahahahaha ok
    BBALLARL (12:24:42 AM): save it to a word document
    strokesoco (12:24:50 AM): its already saved in my aim log
    strokesoco (12:24:53 AM): <3 dead aim
    BBALLARL (12:24:53 AM): bulls on parade shitting...ohhhhhhhh
    strokesoco (12:25:04 AM): yeah that doesnt work
    strokesoco (12:25:06 AM): sorry
    BBALLARL (12:25:13 AM): anyway, so he is like "whats your name?"
    BBALLARL (12:25:18 AM): and i say "andrew"
    BBALLARL (12:25:33 AM): and he sticks out his hand and says "hey im zack. nice to meet you."
    BBALLARL (12:25:38 AM): and i shake his hand
    strokesoco (12:25:39 AM): awww!
    BBALLARL (12:26:05 AM): and he says "this is my gf catalina" (with super spanish accent on the name). and she shakes my hand and says nice to meet you as well
    strokesoco (12:26:15 AM): hot?
    BBALLARL (12:26:41 AM): so this is where the exact order of the events gets fuzzy, because at this point im thinking "should i ask?" plus i really admire this guy so im trying not to be a douche
    BBALLARL (12:26:46 AM): and no, shes not, but she was very nice
    BBALLARL (12:27:15 AM): and i think i just said "so are you guys playing coachella this year?"
    BBALLARL (12:27:20 AM): you guys obviously meaning RATM
    BBALLARL (12:27:51 AM): and he says "i cant tell you that" but he and his gf both kind of eye-smile (you know where their eyes twinkle, and you can tell theyre keeping a secret? that kind of thing)
    BBALLARL (12:28:13 AM): and she kind of laughs and says, sarcastically, "but i can tell you"
    BBALLARL (12:28:33 AM): and hes like "im contractually obligated" but jokingly
    BBALLARL (12:28:57 AM): and then hes like "no, we're playing this year. yeah."
    strokesoco (12:29:04 AM): ahaahaha
    strokesoco (12:29:08 AM): thats so awesome
    BBALLARL (12:29:13 AM): and i think i got the douchey grin and said something to the effect "awesome, thats so rad"
    BBALLARL (12:29:20 AM): and i asked if he was excited
    BBALLARL (12:29:31 AM): and hes like "yeah, its been a long time since the 4 of us were on stage together"
    BBALLARL (12:29:39 AM): and then said "how did you know about that?"
    strokesoco (12:29:42 AM): HAHAHAHA
    BBALLARL (12:29:47 AM): and i said "i post on the message board"
    BBALLARL (12:30:00 AM): "and that you guys were rumored and stuff"
    BBALLARL (12:30:14 AM): and then i said "you guys played 99 right?"
    strokesoco (12:30:20 AM): lol
    BBALLARL (12:30:23 AM): and hes like "yeah, we did. i remember cause i had laryngitis"
    strokesoco (12:30:27 AM): aww
    BBALLARL (12:30:29 AM): and i was like "oh yeah i have a bootleg of that"
    strokesoco (12:30:35 AM): damn you had a whole convo with the man!
    BBALLARL (12:30:39 AM): (im such a loser...message board, bootlegs, etc)
    strokesoco (12:30:54 AM): but youre a winner cause you fucking talked to zach de la rocha!
    BBALLARL (12:31:35 AM): and hes like "cool". so then i said they could go in front of us in line because they were there first (untrue, i just was kind of excited) and i said "nice to meet you" again and they said the same and they left
    strokesoco (12:31:55 AM): awww andrew
    BBALLARL (12:31:57 AM): he bought kendal jackson red wine from 7-11
    strokesoco (12:31:59 AM): amazing
    strokesoco (12:32:02 AM): hahahahaha
    BBALLARL (12:32:06 AM): and then drove off in his bmw
    strokesoco (12:32:07 AM): so cool
    BBALLARL (12:32:08 AM): which was dirty

    About 10 years ago, Zach came into the restaurant I was working in. I was so dumbstruck that I couldn't speak - to anyone - and the only word that I could think was "Zach".

    Cheers to not leaking this story on the board. I bought a Slurpee at 7-11 once and immediately told 35 people, so I am certainly impressed.

    Andrew, great story bro. Always fun to hear good shitty like that. And yes, you did a great job of keeping that a secret.

    Well, we knew Tom was Ok with selling out to the man (see: Audioslave)

    RANDOM QUESTION: Has anyone seen RATM live? Zack jumping around. Tom just killing the guitar... Thia is a great thing to happen. RATM will absolutely dominate their set in coachella. Anyone who thinks otherwise, you've either gotten too old or too snobby (or you prefer Manilow). They'll kill.

    It's a shame they can;t OPEN the festival... Imagine getting your day started off with "F you, I won;t do what you tell me"... Then again, we don;t need people fighting to the death in the desert, so...

    I've seen RATM 6 times in Denver. Every time they killed it. Probably one of the best bands I've ever seen. RATM at red rocks in 97 or 96 is probably one of the best shows I've ever witnessed, and red rocks sucks.

    I went to high school with Zack(although he was younger,my brother knew him alot better)and one time I helped bribe a bouncer to get him in a Bad Brains show,and I have to tell you he's always been one of the nicest,most charming,and genuine people that I've known.
    One time I was at my friend Adam's house in Irvine and Zack stopped by before he was going to play that night at the Coach house in San Juan Capistrano,just to say hi and see if Adam's mom wanted to be on the guest list.I remember him and Adam singing "Jump" by Kriss Kross and joking around.That's sorta the way I remember Zack,even though I've seen RATM alot since then.I'll be there on the 29th,for sure.

    That was an awsome story. Its good to see a thread not full of american wankers whinning about rage and RHCP and any other name they recognize on the list. I signed up on this message board thing wanting to share some excitement and get people geared up about this once in a life time opportunity. Never seen rage before, I'm from canada, and a bit young for their time any ways, so this is living a dream. Thank you ppl for feeding my excitment!!!!
    Oh, and a question for you ppl who have seen rage live in the states. I love to mosh, but moshing in Canada isnt punching in the face or going for blood or anything like that to us. We shove around and get worked up, but in a brotherly kind of way, not so combative you know what I mean? If someone falls down, 3-4 ppl stop to help him up and make sure he is good to go again. All I'm asking is what can I expect from this massive, high energy mosh pit and are people going to be head-hunting out there or what?
