How I Met Stefan Olsdal from Placebo

Concerts, London, Music

Farewell, 2017! You were truly amazing, as my biggest dream – to move to London – finally came true! ❤ I also had a lot of great moments, saw Depeche Mode and Red Hot Chili Peppers, achieved a lot of goals, finished my Master studies, got a job, had projects, made memories!

I know I became quite rare with my blog post, you know, life (especially working life) in L. is very busy, but I’ll do my best to post more often!

So, I’d like to devote my very first blog post in 2018 to a very special day in my life – November 25, 2017.

To begin with, I’ve been a big fan of Placebo for 12 years, which makes a half of my life. Through these years Placebo and their music was always with me, in any period of my life, be it sad or happy.  I cannot understand people who say that Placebo’s music is depressing. They probably know only one song and judge by it. I myself think that Placebo have a song for every possible emotion and feeling a human can experience. I’ve been to three gigs and each was magical and unique for me. I’ve been smiling like mad at each concert and cried out of happiness and joy.

And this, kids, is how I met Red Hot Chili Peppers:

A month ago I was walking home from my work-related meeting. On my way I decided to walk past a hotel in which, as I saw from social media a day before, stayed legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers. I was simply walking, listening to By The Way in my earphones, I didn’t have any make-up on my face, I even had a run in my tights! I had no piece of paper or a pen with me to ask for an autograph. As I reached the hotel I noticed three big black cars near it, as well as a trio waiting for RHCP. I without any hesitation asked one guy if he has an extra paper to share with me and another if he can owe me a pen. Several minutes later I understood that it was a right decision to pass this place by, as Chad Smith – the drummer – went outside. He was extremely friendly and said that he likes my Gustav Klimt IPhone case. I was just standing there completely shocked 😀 Like, I was simply going home, and here is a guy from RHCP and he even speaks to me, like how can it be possible?!
So, my big evening plans – to go home, take a bath, do makeup, properly dress up, have a dinner, and slowly go downtown to meet my friends, and, most important, to buy a ticket to the show (due to several circumstances I was waiting for the last day to buy it) – were ruined. But, wait for it, it was legendary!

It’s not a secret that I am totally addicted to music. I cannot imagine my life and myself as a person without my music and live concerts. I simply cannot function without it!

The love of my life is rock music and I am completely devoted to it. As sang by Kiss, God gave rock’n’roll to you! I also like indie, alternative & the stuff, and my guilty pleasure is 80s and 90s music.

I consider music taste as being the most attractive thing in the world – my Prince Charming simply must have a perfect music taste!

I have tried to master drums and even have sung in a choir, and I think I’d like to master music so it could be something more serious than my daily singing practice with a frying pan in my hand.

Short story long, let me present you
