Because you are metal until you are in the fucking ground, here's a (black)heartwarming story about two old men who escaped their no-doubt Dickensian retirement home to go to the Wacken metal show in Germany.
Wacken, the largest open-air metal festival in the world, has attracted fans from around the globe. Pilgrims to the Metal Mecca included my buddy Alec who returned with everything he owned covered in mud and with the biggest smile on his face.
As reported by Io9, the pair had wandered off from a retirement home 25 miles away from the concert and traveled by foot and by bus. They were found disoriented and taken to the medical tent. Once the police came to pick them up, they were reluctant to leave and the taxi that returned them to the center went with police escort.
I say that they should have let them rock on, given them backstage passes, and had a couple of nurses keep an eye on them. It's got to be a lot more interesting than hanging out in some German retirement home eating strudel and watching Ladykracher or whatever they do.
As for the rest of you, check out the trailer for Wacken 2019. It'll be here just in time to spring your grandma from the pokey.
