So back on September 25th in Champaign, Illinois, there was a shooting which left one man dead. This man's best friend was shot in the back and still has the bullet inside of him. Well recently this man, Erik Lasaine, quoted Alter Bridge's song "Blackbird" at a eulogy for his best friend. Myles Kennedy and the guys heard this story and were compelled to reach out. Long story short: The band offered to fly Lasaine out to their show in Dallas at the House of Blues. This is a really killer story and my terrible blogging skills wont do it justice, so you can catch more of this story right HERE thanks to Blabbermouth!
