The last memorable exchange with a fan of your music?
Met a girl named Sarah in Denver who is in the fight of her life against cancer. Her favorite band is RED and we ran into her backstage before our set. She brought me to tears just thinking about what her and her family were dealing with. After the set, I jumped off the stage and went straight to her as if she was the only one watching. Squeezed her as hard as I could and told her to simply FIGHT. Sometimes it’s the smallest things we do that have the biggest impact.
