|Письмо к Брайану Молко|
This day we have a good cause (and moral right!) to express all that we carry deep in our hearts every day. Today you’ll hear a lot of greetings from your associates and people who are the closest to you. Our congratulations, of course, won’t be heard but we want you feel them in this letter. We wish that all the good, kind, light, beautiful things we can’t say aloud and can’t even enounce in words reached you through invisible universal (cosmic) channels.
Some people are in love with you due to your songs, your appearance, some people – due to your outrageous behaviour, the image created by you or the freedom you gave to many of us bringing us a chance to be ourselves.
As for your fans from Saint Placebo Ego we love you entirely, love you as you are, with all your habits, your manners, all your quirks and twists. We love your eyes, your eyelids, your smile, your neck, your shoulders… hm… and especially your beautiful footwear. :) It is a deep-heart and highly spiritual feeling (that we surely confirm) and we want this strong and unprecedented fan love always to be your support and inspire you for new musical masterpieces… Because we have a need of you. Can you hear it, Molko? We need you! You are a vital need for us.
Because, you know, now you are not just sweetly singing Princess for us, you are a source of emotional saturation, satisfaction, happiness, joy… Be the one you want to be… only don’t cast us away, don’t forget us, don’t betray us and don’t betray yourself.
The main phenomenon of our Russian fan community’s existing lies in the fact that totally different people – of diverse professions, interests, judgments, – scattered to all the corners of our immense mother country, magically are becoming one close family when the name of Brian Molko does sound. For us Placebo have long ago ceased to be a group that just makes music of high quality – it is much more… We can say that with the increase of years it is becoming the way of life and Placebo lives in all we do.
The reason of writing this letter is – gratitude. During the time we are staying with Placebo many of us have walked certain parts of their life journey, have matured, started the families but the feeling of respect and enormous love to the person with the name “Brian Molko” remains. That’s why we express our gratitude for the fact that the music produced by you and your “partners in crime” has helped us to find true friends, to reveal ourselves in a new way and have a new sight at the world, to be successful, active, creative and never lose a hope.
We are looking forward for Placebo’s return to Russia and expecting to present a gift to you here. But the major present is what you made for us. In this very day, the 10th of December. Happy birthday, Brian!
