all that glitters is not Rob's drumset, but damn....it sure is sparkly
The Chicago Ridge community website has pictures from Ridgefest up, including some great shots of becky onstage and of Keanu with fans. The pictures are HUGE, so any of you (like me) on dialup can plan on spending some time, but believe me, they are WORTH IT. Especially those BIG brown eyes in this one. Thanks to Jane for the link!
While you're waiting for the pictures to download, you can go read Renie's story of her adventure at Ridgefest. I just think it's awesome that he took the time to give so many people a special memory and experience.
I'll say it again.
Keanu Reeves is a great guy.

He is a great guy, the more I read about how he came across at Ridgefest the more I adore him. What a sweetheart he seems to be!
luckily i'm at work with a t1 line, so -- BAM -- instant keanu. hee! i'll say it again: he's beautiful inside and out.
Thank you to whomever took pics of the rest of the band...even though the one with Keanu and the two little girls is just priceless. Their facial expressions are how the rest of us would feel in their place but are too damn old to grin that cute. They look like they are about to squeeeeel!!!
Yeah, Chianti I had exactly the same response to that pic with the little girls! squeeee meee!
*squeals with Renie for meeting Keanu*
Great story Renie...such a long time trying to see Keanu and finally a dream come true...it’s beautiful!! I relive the moment every time I see the pics and read the stories...what memories!
