When you guys see this, probably OOR’s European Tour has ended and there are more stories coming our way. Yay! I want to say thank you to all the people who shared their stories with us so far, and to the avid readers as well.
Look who’s back in Germany… I am! Now it’s Melanie’s turn to share her excitement towards meeting OOR for the first time and her journey to the European Tour!
Q1:How did you find out about ONE OK ROCK & when was the first time you heard them?
The first time I heard them was when I listened to Kanzen Kankaku Dreamer which my brother subbed with German subtitles ^.^ After that I got into a few songs like Wherever you are and Nobody’s Home and so on 🙂
Q2: What is your favorite OOR song and why?
Hard question >.< It depends on my current mood, but to name a few:
Deeper Deeper: Great song to scream out bad thoughts and it pushes me always to go on. I also really love the music video ♥
Wherever You Are: I fell in love with Taka because of it, so yeah that’s the reason why 😉 It was the first time his voice hit me so hard that I started crying. I’m not really a person who cries a lot, but his voice gives me goosebumps ♥
Answer is Near: Always helps me to think positive and its great to rock out to.
Nothing Helps: My motivation song at sports/gym and from everyday stress 🙂
Q3: Do you collect their merch? If yes, which ones do you have?
I got a Tshirt/Hoodie from the 35xxv Tour last year in Hamburg and I started collecting their cds.
Q4: Who is your favorite ONE OK ROCK member and why?
Taka ♥ He inspires me everyday and saved me from my darker side. I’m so in love with his voice and his looks (puppy eyes ♥) He is so kind, sweet and simply adorable, even if he is naughty sometimes 😉 ♥
Q5: How did ONE OK ROCK change your life?
I used to have severe depression. Then I discovered OOR at a time where nobody else could help me. I started listening to their songs everyday.So i now think that they saved me from myself, which is pretty amazing. Nowadays i listen to songs like Heartache and it helps me to go to bad thoughts quickly.
Q6: Have you watched any of their live performances before? What were your expectations before the live and were they met? Did you have your close ONE OK ROCK encounter and how did it go?
I watched them for the first time last December in Hamburg *.* (Due my studies I had no time to see them during their Europe tour in 2013/2014 T.T) The concert was sooo amazing! It was like a dream come true for me and I got so fired up. I started bouncing and jumping really hard that I could barely stand after the concert *lol* The day after I was so sad because it all went so quick and I needed to go back to work 🙁 But it was definitely one of the greatest experience in my life. Sadly, I had no close encounter 🙁
Q7: Will you watch them live again and if yes, where do you want to watch them again?
YES !! I will go to Rock im Park in Nürnberg and to their concert in Münster. I’m so excited! I even got a VIP pass (in Münster) so I will meeting them for the first time! >//< I hope that I will be able to speak and not to pass out in front of them… xD
Q8: What is your message for ONE OK ROCK in case they get the chance to see this interview? 🙂
I really want to thank you for your music and for spreading it out to the world 🙂 I know you are touring a lot which I’m grateful for because I got the chance to see you again and finally meet you. I hope that you will be able to continue doing music for many many years and fulfil your dreams 🙂
