When the question, “What was your first concert?” comes up, it is usually filled with embarrassing answers and recently, we learned that Blake Griffin’s first concert was the rock band, “Creed”.
Blake was recently profiled in a Rolling Stone article and the interviewer asked him about going to see Creed for the first time:
I thought you were a pretty cool guy, until I heard that your first concert was Creed.
I’m gonna delegate the blame for that to my older brother. When he said, “I’m gonna go to the Creed concert,” I was like, “I want to go too.” No one told me, “Hey Blake, this isn’t cool,” so I was all in on Creed. Somewhere along the line, that changed. Not to just completely sh-t on Creed, that music’s just not my style anymore.
At the time, I wonder if Blake’s arms were wide open or if he wanted them to take him higher.
