We’re close to the end of the month and I’m happy we’re going to be moving on to new horizons… or in this case, finally place everyone’s backstories before we introduce new ones! Hahaha! Such a busy life for this writer. I had some thoughts regarding how to send these stories to ONE OK ROCK. It’s a work in progress but I know it will be possible.
Anyway! We are still in the Philippines for Love for 10969 and I present to you guys the newest story from Adrienne!!!
Tell Us About Yourself
Fans on ONE OK ROCK: First Stage
How did you get into this fandom?
When was the first time you heard about ONE OK ROCK?
There isn’t enough lines to share my One Ok Rock story due to the excitement and thrill that I’ve felt. Thus, somewhere years ago I’ve contained this feeling through blogging about this experience. You may want to read my blog about how I’ve come to love One Ok Rock. I truly hope you enjoy reading it! Here’s the link: An Unexpected Turn with One Ok Rock

First impression you had about ONE OK ROCK?
An impressive and awesome band who could perhaps make it in the international scene!
From the time you first heard them to now, what is your favorite song from ONE OK ROCK and why?
It’s difficult to choose since most of their songs are my favorite. But if it’s a song about love, I must say it’s Wherever You Are! I don’t why but this particular song has captured my heart and I bet it will define my own love story in the near future (I truly hope so!).

We will ask you some opinions on usual trends on ONE OK ROCK now. You can skip this section if you don’t want us to post your answers.
What’s your current impression with how the band is going now?
I think their new sound has given them greater potential in the international music scene. Although I must say it’s quite a change as most fans would say who are used to their previous beats. But I guess, it’s a good change as well, since their music has reached more people around the world. After all, this is what the band wanted and more importantly, this is what they’ve always dreamed of even when they were younger.
What’s your opinion about fans leaving the ONE OK ROCK fandom because of various factors? (Ex. the release of 35XXXV, tour scheds, collabs)
I think that people are entitled to their own decisions. In any field, there are always changes and people may have to choose different paths. I guess it’s expected that people change their taste in music. Some leave the fandom to discover new bands. There are also some who recently joins in the “fun” and becomes part of the fandom.
What do you wish for ONE OK ROCK to do next? (ex. music changes, collaborations, hair styles, etc).
Little things and big things. I would want to be surprised. But I guess it would be an awesome view to find them playing in any music awards show like the Grammy’s, Billboard Charts and etc.
The Most Important Questions
You shouldn’t miss these!
Has ONE OK ROCK changed your life?
In one way or the other, I think they might have changed my life. They’ve inspired me to do better things. Their music has helped me in times of the most simple dilemmas I’m currently dealing and even during the most complicated phases in my life. Their songs have soothe me to sleep and relax whenever I feel tired. Their random stories backstage have definitely impacted me on how I need to go on my own dreams and realizations. I guess they have moved me not just as musicians but as people.
