So this year is nearly up. Share your favourite moments!

I went to a BB King concert in June. Not a massive BB King fan, but, it's BB King for God's sake. I might not get another chance to see him. Anyway, it was a one off show at the Royal Albert Hall. First half hour or so was just his own material/ blues standards. Was cool. Then he said he was gunna bring on a few guests. Me and my friend were pretty sure it was gunna be Clapton, as he had a string of days there right after BB King. We were wrong. Disgustingly wrong. First, Derek Trucks and his wife (hot) came on. They were both amazing. Then, he said he was gunna bring more people in... Along comes Ronnie Wood (Stones are one of my favourite bands), Slash (one of my favourite guitarists) and Mick Hucknall. Needless to say, I nearly threw up everywhere. I was fangirling all over the place, it was disgusting. Then, at the end, everyone moved to the front to get pictures, and I got a handshake from BB King himself.

Apart from that, there have been several awesome parties. Some really cool times with mates. Sitting on the beach with a few mates in the summer, a few beers and just talking for hours.

Got all my higher end guitar gear this year too.

And Charlie Simpsons new album, Young Pilgrim is one of the best albums of this year.

I'm expecting lots of TL;DR, so just post your favourite moments of this year.

Went to a Prince concert in July.

Found great new bands like Black Stone Cherry

Got a kitten the day before the Prince concert

Now that I think about it, this was one of the best years I've ever had.

EDIT: I'm getting an Xbox for Christmas. So that will add on to it being a good year

They are the shit. Their new album is definitely one of the best this year.

At first I thought you said they were shit. I swear I would have snapped and killed you.

I saw B.B. a few years back. Buddy Holly played opened and he set the whole place on fire. Buddy Holly was ****ing great. B.B. just sat played a few bars of a song and then talked about Cialis for half an hour then played a few more bars then back to Cialis. He's 90 or something so it's okay, but it was still disappointing.

Highlights of my year had to be seeing Elvis Costello put on one of the most spectacular shows ever (The Spectacular Spinning Songbook is a riot), seeing Drive, and having this girl being absolutely crazy for me.

Went to the amazonas in northern Brazil for a month for an archaeological excavation. Had a month of excavations before that as well. Was pretty damn awesome.

Besides that I got a few highlights here and there, but I'm pretty shit at remembering anything. It actually took me a while before I remembered the last excavation, and it ended 5 days ago...

I asked my girlfriend to marry me.

Nothing else.


He even put it in descending importance.

Mine would be getting Jeff Loomis to sign my guitar.

My ex did the same. Cheated on me and then acted like I'd given her sister a facial. Women are retarded.

Losing my virginity. Other female related experiences. Sport related successes. I think I'm now surrounded by the best group of friends I've ever had.

The best bit of 2011 was watching people get furious over a clearly made up story in the "I smeared poo on my guitarists wife" thread.
Quote by GLP_Arclite
Pooping is well good though, to be fair.

Spend an extended amount of time exploring London.
Got to go to Paris for spring break, which was amazing.
Got a good/fun summer job working with a close friend.
Played my first real show, a coffeehouse gig, which went well.
Got a large role in one of the college plays.
and,
finally
I get to see my best friend who lives on the other side of the world twice in the same year.

I'd say 2011 has been pretty good to me.
