Crazy that he tosses money to kids with no way home. That's awesome. Gotta meet this guy when I get on the tour for a few days in July.

That's pretty crazy that, despite whatever people say about the band list, it's one of the longest-running festivals. It can't be easy to run it right now when rock music of that type is about the least popular music in the mainstream.

"Speaking of Warped’s longevity, what are your Top Five Warped Moments?
When the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame exhibit opened, it was cool to go to that. When we did our 15-year anniversary show for Music Cares, that was great. Doing shows at the Gorge is always fun. Touring Australia was a great time. Now we’re going back to London and we’re trying to go to South America in spring."

i'm sure it's a massive undertaking doing this every year. but there is a shit ton of teeny bopper bands anymore that take over the majority of the tour it's easy money.

Every year I always try and get the nerve to talk to him when he passes but I never do. He's amazing at what he does. I have so much respect for him.

I love that visiting The Gorge is in his top 5 favorite warped tour moments.

The Gorge is legit as fuck on a sunny. That means super legit, in case that' not clear. Plus it's in George, Washington. Who wouldn't like to be in George, Washington.

Do it man. He's super nice. I first saw him a few years back. NOFX was playing during a thunder/lightning storm, and I heard someone talking into a walkie talkie near me telling them to get the band off the stage. I turned and it was Lyman. Even in the midst of trying to get a band off the stage for safety (which of course, knowing NOFX, they continued playing), he paused, took a pic, and thanked me for supporting the tour

This year they're at Redmond, WA....not the Gorge, which is SUPER disappointing, since the view is breathtaking. I would've loved to see the Foo Fighters at Sasquatch a year or so ago.

I saw that. The Gorge is losing a LOT of big annual shows and if acts lately.
