The Letter

Here's the letter I wrote them. It's kinda long so you don't have to read it unless you really want to..or if you're just curious. :)

Hi Jason, Kevin, Rob, & Frank,
Ok. Well in the U.S. we have a thing called prom. It's a big dance in the last month of the school year where all the Seniors and Juniors dress up REALLY nice and dance the night away. It's a HUGE event. "After Prom" is usually at the YMCA. We go swimming and gamble. It's fun. This year a bunch of friends have invited me to pitch in to ride in a limo! But I know I'll feel totally out of place 'cause I'll probably not have a date. I always have a date to our school dances (never the same person twice though) & it'll really suck to go dateless to my Senior Prom which is one of the biggest events during Senior year (coming only second to Graduation). It's always been a dream of mine to take a music star to my Senior Prom. When I was little it was Michael Jackson (*rolls eyes* I know.. but he was cool at the time and I was like 5. I didn't know any better), then as I got older I wanted to take a Rock Star. Last year my goal was to ask Kirk Hammet (from Metallica) to my Senior prom but I realized that I'd have no chance in hell being that he's EXTREMELY famous, married, & he probably won't even get my letter. So my dream was kinda crushed. Then on November 27, 2000 at the Odeon I thought "Why not ask one of the guys from Slaves On Dope?". So here I am.. asking all of you (I'll understand if Jason doesn't wanna since he's married or Kevin 'cause last I knew he had a girlfriend. It'd be awesome if all of you could go though.) to go with me to my Senior prom and make my wish come true. I will do EVERYTHING in my power to either convince one of you to go or get you there. If you wanna go but don't think you'll be able to, try and convince your management to let you. Prom is on May 5th, the first Saturday in May.
If you have to you can check out my criminal record (even though I've never committed a crime in my life). You can send a team of people to check out the place where prom is held to make sure there's no bombs, or snipers or whatever. You can talk to everyone that knows me to make sure I'm not a total freak or stalker or whatever. If your management wants to make sure everything's cool they can contact me or my family.
If I have to I'll write MTV to have them ask you on air. I'll write a song and sing it to you on bended knee. I'll write EVERY radio station in this area about it and have them play your music. I have this letter on a web page along with pictures of me at the dances before then so you can see what I look like all dressed up.
( ) I'll have all my friends write you letters to convince you to go with me. I will do EVERYTHING in my power to convince you to go and get you there. So PPPPPPLLLLLLEEEEEEEEAAAAASSSSSSEEEEEE will you go with me? Help make my one wish in life come true. Otherwise I'll be dateless and alone on one of the second most important nights in my Senior year. I've worked soo incredibly hard to get your name out there. I've written a music review for our school's newspaper on your C.D. (I can bring you a copy of it the next time I see you), I've made a web page dedicated to you that took me Over 72 hours to perfect, I've given out your bumper stickers to all my friends and other people at my school that like rock, I've done sooo much work to be your biggest fan. You've asked for nothing of me yet I've done so much for you, all I'm asking for is a date to my senior prom. Please don't destroy my dream without even trying to make it come true. Take all the time you need to think about it.. well.. not all the time you need..up till the middle of April at least. I'll be waiting for your answer. You can e-mail me, write me, or call me with the information below. I hope to here from you soon.
Rock On,

Sorry. The guys got my actually information in the e-mail I sent them without the question marks. I just didn't want a bunch strangers writing me or calling me. But you can e-mail me if you like.

Here is a letter I wrote to their Booking Agents. It obviously didn't effect them in any way or they just plain didn't read it.

Hello. I am writing you this letter because I'm a huge fan of Slaves On Dope with a dream.

In January I wrote the guys a letter asking them to my Senior Prom; it was a page (front and back) long. In the letter I said that I will do everything in my power to get them to go. This happens to be a part of that promise.

The day I e-mailed them the letter, Frank Salvaggio called my house. He told me that he was touched by my letter and he promised me that if they are free that day he would DEFIANTLY go. I also got an e-mail back from Kevin Jardine that night saying he would love to go too. Then I went up to Cleveland to see the guys on Sno-Core Rock February 3rd. I talked to Jason Rockman & Rob Urbani about it and they both said they want to go. So all four of the guys have told me that they really want to go with me. The problem is that they are constantly on tour.

My Senior prom is on May 5th (the first Saturday in May). I was wondering. since you people are the ones that tell them what to do and when to do it, if you could find it in your heart to help my one wish in life come true by possibly scheduling them to have that day off.

I know it seems like I'm asking a bit much but this has been a dream of mine my whole life. Since I was a little girl I've wanted to take a Rock band to my Senior prom. Now I've actually have a band that I know and Love wanting to take me. The only thing that can shatter my dream is you people. Granted you are just doing your job, but I'm asking you as a person to please grant me this.

Everyone has dreams of something, and most peoples dreams come true for them no matter how big or small. Not me. Everything I've ever wanted I've never got. All my dreams have been crushed by people that have already achieved theirs.

It's not like I'm asking for something but giving nothing in return. I've made a web page dedicated to the guys and with it I have an entire page about Ozzfest ( ). I talk about Ozzfest all the time and have gotten about 20 or more people to go to Ozzfest this year for their first time. I'm a member of the Slaves On Dope Yahoo! Club along with the Slaves For Slaves On Dope Yahoo! Club and InChEs FrOm ThE MaInLiNe Yahoo! Club. I'm always updating them on new stuff from Divine Recordings, the guys official site, tour dates, C.D.'s, etc. Also everyone in my school know about the guys and I've handed out their bumper stickers. I joined the Priority Records group ( ) to advertise them further. If you do decide to grant my wish and be my savior, I will do any other extra advertising you ask of me.

Please help my dream come true. If you want to know all the extras about this whole thing I made a web page about it. It has the letter I wrote them. The days I talked to them about it. Information about myself. Along with some of the options I'm cosidering for a dress if they can go. Please check out the site to at least read the letter. It explains how much this does truely mean to me.

Thank you for your time.
