Dark Tumblr Themes

17. My favorite bands include (but are not limited to) My Chemical Romance, Falling in Reverse, the Used, Pierce the Veil, Sleeping with Sirens, Tonight Alive, Boys Like Girls and many more. Currently wandering in a field of paper flowers, stealing neon stars from the night sky.

So guys, Ronnie has been getting a lot of shit for being a scumbag lately. People trash his name and list all these reasons for why they think so. I could really give two shits. I’m not going to decide my feelings for a person based solely on things that I was not there to witness. I have seen Falling in Reverse three times and each time Ronnie, as well as Ron, Jacky, Derek and Ryan, have been nothing but sweethearts to me. Last night I attended one of the shows on the Thug in Me Is You tour, and was VIP. My friend and I had made a book with pictures for reasons they were great (yes, similar to the one the girls made for SWS) to give to the band. Now my friend gave Ronnie a boa and he just said thank you and had her move along. After having short greeting with Derek and Jacky I handed the book to Ryan (he seemed the least threatening) with it open to the “Seaman” page. We had photoshopped his face onto that old Dreamcast game Seaman as a joke. He seemed rather confused but then Ronnie saw it. He seemed to get the reference because he laughed quite hard before pulling it out of Ryan’s hands. Flipping through the pages, he landed on pictures of his face really close up, making them look awful. He was chatting about it to Ryan while I stood there. The security guard ushered us on because it was taking too long. Ronnie asked if they were allowed to keep it (of course I said yes) and I got a hug. No hug from Ron (or Ryan for that matter) because of that, but it was still worth it. I spoke with a couple fans in the pit after who seemed shocked Ronnie was nice to me, as he wasn’t nice to them. Later in the show I heard others bitching about him, saying how horrible of a person he was. Apparently in the meet and greet he tried to shake their hands and they blew him off completely, and gave him dirty looks. Now, if you want to complain about I See Stars getting kicked off the tour, that’s fine. If you want to even tell him so, that’s okay too. But just to be rude to him when he was only attempting to be nice? That’s kind of fucked up. There were probably tons of people in the GA line outside who would have loved to meet the band and been so excited, but instead these people come to be rude to them. I don’t know the details on why I See Stars got kicked off for sure, and because of that I won’t make a judgement on what side was right and wrong. All I know is that Ronnie was very nice to me and throughout the show. A larger man passed out in the pit and Ronnie gave him a bottle of water (which the security would not unless of dire circumstances). He helped return a credit card someone lost in the pit. A girl got knocked down hard, nobody would help her up. He allowed her to come to the front when injured. He’s just a person like everyone else. He had issues with women and obviously with anger. The man is getting better slowly but surely. My father actually was talking to the girl Ronnie used to babysit. She said Ronnie’s girlfriend (who he was also able to speak to for a bit) is straightening him out a lot more than he before. Compared to the FIR show I saw about 3/4 of a year ago, you can really see how the band (really Ronnie) has matured. 
Today when I looked at the poster he signed for me, he even wrote a little heart by his name. He didn’t do that for my friend. Maybe he just wants to be treated like a person, rather than have people ask him for stuff or shower him with gifts people have bought, he just wants a little TLC. You never know. 
Oh by the way, Derek gives pretty awesome hugs.
