Dear Gavin Degraw,

Thank you for rocking me with your live show tonight. Your band is amazing, tight, and in the pocket. Your lead player is a freak with great tone. Your old songs make me sing loudly, your new tunes are quite lovely and i’m sure will grow on me with time (and with my many forthcoming solo renditions of said songs in my truck), and you’re the best songwriter at crafting a musically perfect bridge that i’ve ever heard. Let’s make a deal, ok? You keep rocking, writing, and singing your pasty white butt off, and i’ll keep telling everyone I know that you’re five hundred times better than most of the singer-songwriter folks you often get lumped in with. Deal?

Stick around awhile,Joshua
