Well, my english sucks, so I'll try to do the best I can. I knew Frank Turner by his Bad Religion cover (My poor friend me, one of my favourites songs). Then I started listen to his songs and albums (Sleep is for the week and Love, Ire & Song) and Million Dead's albums (I love that band, it's amazing).
Now I'm a big fan of him, I hope someday I could see him play live in my country.

Bueno, perdón por mi inglés, realmente me costó mucho escribir los anteriores párrafos. Saludos a todos desde América del Sur, espero ser bienvenido!
Hey Tomas, welcome!

Embarrassingly recent fan here - only since this summer. My name is Cheryl and I live just outside Washington, DC.

Managed to catch him in both Baltimore and Philly. Hope for more when he comes back to do the support tour here in the US in the spring.

Hello FT forum

My name is Kerrie. I've been a massive Springsteen fan for 23 years and a massive FT fan for 12 days!

Very much looking forward to my first show in London in a couple of weeks and hope to learn all the words by then so I can sing a long (badly)! :)

There were some Spanish people at work today. They asked me to speak to them in Spanish as they didn't understand English. In order to demonstrate the extent of my abilities, I said "Una cerveza por favor". I think it worked.

Welcome btw. I loved Argentina when I visited, especially Bueons Aires. I went to see a Divididos gig, it was really great fun. It was apparently quite special as it was the first with their new drummer. Are you a fan of theirs?

The story of "una cerveza por favor", was very funny, hahaha. I think I'd have the same problems if I had to speak in english with someone on the street. A couple of times I had to give directions to tourists here in Buenos Aires and, well... I do not know if they have understood.

Divididos is one of the oldest and most important rock bands in my country. I saw them live a few times, but I'm not a fan. My parents loves their music, that's why I grew up listening to Divididos.
And yes, they have a new drummer, they are all great musicians.

Hej,
Lotta from Stockholm, Sweden. The dark time of the year has started here, so I need something to do during the long winterdays- and nights. I hope I find it here :wink:
