Do I like Avenged Sevenfold’s music? Not at all.
Do I understand their popularity? Only a little bit; I mean, they pander to the lowest common denominator of rock fan, so, of course they’re going to be biggish.
Do I think what they did for Beau Barkley, a worker on the Mayhem Festival, the other day was righteous? I do.
The band helped Beau propose to his longtime girlfriend — uber-cutie Micah Manzanarez — during Avenged’s set at the July 14 Mayhem stop at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado.
Beau writes online:
“After all the hell I have put [Micah] through the last few years, I had to do something big to make up for it. This was a gift from my tour family and myself for all the lonely times I have put her through.”
Good move, Beau. She may not have the best taste in bands but she’s smoking, dude. Nice work.
We wish the happy couple all the best.
Here’s video of the proposal going down:
