Usually when you’re out there filming a concert, the first thing you might see happen is a security guard taking the camera away or the musician losing his or her sh*t because you’re breaking some sacred bond. Not at this Brad Paisley show.
Mike Perlof was just enjoying the show and filming with his GoPro camera when Paisley reached down without missing a beat and used the fan’s camera to start busting out a slide guitar solo. From the description:
Brad Paisley, Charlie Worsham, and Randy Houser are rocking out when THE MOST AMAZING thing that has ever happened to me at a live show takes place! It was the perfect storm because I happened to not have my case on my GoPro which would have made it nearly impossible to play slide guitar with the camera at that angle that Brad got. Not to mention passing the camera without skipping a single note and throwing it back to me perfectly. INSANE! Its magical moments like these that make live music.
It’s certainly a pretty boss moment and really adds to Paisley’s recent roll of winning back some awesome points (shoot me, please) following that whole Accidental Racist thing. Then again, I won’t be surprised to find out that this and that robbery I posted yesterday are all just big adverts for GoPro cameras. I’ll be sad, but I won’t be surprised.
