Best and Worst Moments of Leeds Festival 2002 ..................
(as seen in the Reading/Leeds Program 2003)

Here are my memorable moments from Leeds 2002:

Worst: wheeling a large suitcase for miles, realizing I’d forgotten to pack my tent poles, being subject to a random ass grabbing

Best: meeting two girls (Marnie and Pip) who let me camp on their site, great performances, spotting Robert Turner of BRMC and getting his autograph while grinning uncontrollably.

In case you’re wondering, he wrote “One is better than nuthin’” on my festival program.
