Where Did You Find or Leave Bear?: Westminster, Colorado

“Guess what Lucy! We have tickets to a rock n’ roll concert tonight, and you’re coming with us!”
Lucy was beyond excited! Ever since she came to America, she had secretly hoped someone would take her to a rock concert! “Who are we going to go see?”
“Here’s a hint: he’s one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time!”
Well, Lucy immediately knew exactly who they were going to see. “Are you telling me Slash is in town!? What luck!”

Being a rock n’ roll bear at heart, Lucy had always been a big fan of Slash, who was the famous guitarist from the American band Guns N’ Roses. Even though Guns N’ Roses was most popular in the mid 1980s to early 1990s, Lucy was very familiar with their songs because they are still played on the radio back home. Their album “Appetite for Destruction” from 1987 still holds the record as the best-selling debut album of all time in the whole world (that’s a name Lucy can also relate to because, as a bear, she often has an “appetite for destruction”). And just like her, Slash is British; he was born in Hampstead and raised in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire until he was 11 when he moved “across the pond”. Lucy loves to see Brits going out and conquering the world!

Lucy donned her black T shirt, (“Very rock n’ roll!” said her friends), and hopped in the car for the quick drive to the Ogden Theater in Denver. Lucy and her companions got a good spot on the dance floor, and Lucy roared loudly when the stage lights came up and she got her first glimpse of Slash (in his famous top hat)! She wanted to get a picture with Slash, but alas, she was a little too short, and he is only sort-of visible in the background of the picture (if you know where to look)… but that’s good enough for Lucy!
Lucy and her friends danced and partied into the night, singing along to all of the songs, including her favorite “Sweet Child O’ Mine”. But sadly, all good things must come to an end, and as Slash and his band took their bow after the encore, Lucy exclaimed “That was so much fun – I didn’t want it to ever end!”

Lucy and her friends headed home, their ears ringing from the loud music. Lucy said “temporary hearing loss is the price you pay for the true rock n’ roll experience, although next time I will definitely remember to bring ear plugs”!
