Funeral for a Friend WERE a Welsh post-hardcore band from Bridgend….were…not are.
I think I am still in shock..actually I know I am in shock. Maybe not in shock actually, I think I am full of regret. I wanted to go to the last show in May and I even spoke to Steven about it but then he had a work trip and my daughter’s kindergarden graduation was scheduled for the same week. There was no way I would be able to go and so I just put it out of my mind.
I put it out of my mind until last week and slowly the regret started taking over. I couldn’t miss my daughter’s graduation and my husband was out of town so I had no choice but to stay put but I missed my chance and now there will never be another opportunity.
This band is more than just a band to me. I have been listening to them since 2001 and they have been my go to for anything and everything. I sound so silly but I felt like I knew them because their music wasn’t just music, it was a mirror into their soul. Their lyrics meant something to them and they meant something to me.
I am definitely in denial that they are done and in denial that I won’t get to see them again. I wish I could fly to the UK and there they would be. One last time, for me.
