My band will be opening up for BILLY IDOL!!!!

Holy Crap! Well it doesn't get much cooler then opening up for a Rock N Roll legend. A once in a lifetime experience. Billy gave the OK to have my band Nite Wave (NiteWaveParty.com) open up for him just yesterday. To say I'm nervous may be an understatement.

I just wanted to give a huge thanks to everyone for their support over the past two years. It still seems like I'm dreaming and this isn't really happening. Thanks to this project I now have a band, Nite Wave, and my dreams of having Idol playing my bday are actually happening. Thanks from the bottom of my heart! - michael
