For anyone who could possibly help!
Here is my proposal for you to hopefully forward to the Red Hot Chili Peppers so that myself and my bride-to-be can be married with the greatest band on earth!
This was originally sent to the Australian Promoter and 'band management' who unfortunately turned the proposal down!
Chili fans of the world unite and help be a part of our dream coming true. If you have any way of this letter getting to the band members themselves... Please...

To the Rocker that it may concern,
It has been a dream for many years to get married on stage with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and I believe that you can help this become a reality.
Their By The Way Tour is a dream come true. Having the opportunity once again to see them live is awesome and when my bride-to-be and myself see them in Melbourne, it will be our 10th show and nearly our 10th Anniversary!
So what better way to celebrate than with a marriage of love!
Ever since first seeing Thrashin and hearing Black-eyed Blonde I have been awe-struck! There are two things in my life that leaves me with this feeling everyday and continually still gives me butterflies and fills me with the excitement of Hugh Hefner in an ocean of breasts and makes me smile, and that is my gorgeous bride-to-be Holly and the Majestical Masters Of Mayhem so why not get married completely the two most perfect and loved presences in my life!!!
I first fell in love with my Holly in 1993 in a nightclub that a friend of mine used to DJ at. I used to hang out with him there and wed draw up gig posters for bands that wed dream up or for festivals of our favourite bands that would only take place in our hearts like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Janes Addiction, Faith No More and Helmet all supporting our band in the nightclub we were in! We would pin up articles and photos of all these bands and we used to romanticise about being on the records we played, but most of all we just loved playing them and becoming a part of the journey that the tracks took us on.
Then one night an angel walked into my life for the first time and I said to my friend I am going to marry that girl and here we are! And thats where the rivalry for my hearts mainstay started, between my bride-to-be and the Red Hot Chili Peppers!
Should I tell you about the deepest of love and the strongest of friendships that weve held from the moment we spoke, or perhaps the feeling of dread I still feel, even after 9 ½ years, when I leave for work knowing that I wont smell her presence for hours, or how I can see the universe unfold right in her eyes the beauty, tenderness and mystique of it all or of course how much she loves the Chili Peppers too!
Should I start of the collection of concert photos, newspaper and magazine photos, clippings, articles, reviews, posters, giant-size, tour and limited edition prints and posters that I have collected
or the LPs, 7s, 12s, 12 pop-ups, picture discs, gatefold limited edition Australian, German, European, Japanese, UK, US Tour Releases, the DVDs, videos, cassettes, CDs, double CDs, singles, digipaks, with different graphics, colours, barcodes, texts, import, original or reissue release, new, 2nd hand, mint and never played and sealed for ever just to keep the magic wholly intact, the books, stickers, shorts, t-shirts, long and short sleeve, sweats, hoodies and how still after all these years that I am trying to get a $5 Hard Rock Give It Away gambling chip, or may-be most importantly the concert tickets collected from the 8 concerts Ive been blessed enough to see the band twice in Sydney for the BSSM tour, twice in Sydney for the OHM tour, twice in Sydney for the Californication tour and flew down to Melbourne to see them Twice again! And of course for Sydney and Melbourne for the By The Way tour!!! (Please John solo gigs would of course as well as this wedding going ahead be perfect!)
Something I recently wrote to go on the front of our original wedding invitations which we have put on hold praying this would come true
As Dreams Are Forever So Are You And I
And I would now like to make an addition
And so are the Red Hot Chili Peppers!
Since I was 15 and my parents bought a Skate / Surf Retail store, it has been my career. I love selling skate gear to people, love talking to all walks of life and hearing their stories, their loves and what drives them forward. Skating and music have always gone perfectly hand in hand; remember Christian Hosoi used to always wear a RHCP shirt! And after many years of searching I finally found a copy of 1988s Red Hot Skate Rock with RHCP playing live!
Even though I used to run my parents store for 11 years with them, it wasnt until I moved to Melbourne and started working with the company I am currently with that I felt the most relaxed ever in my career. The opportunity to manage a brand-new store that looked awesome with the most amazing staff. So to bless this event, on our first day with all the new staff and owners of the company Instore, as the doors rolled up with smiles all round we cranked out Higher Ground to take us to heaven and create that perfect environment for all! Honestly, it was amazing!
It was suggested to me that if this were to eventuate it would be before they go on stage. But being there with, rather than before, is to have the magical presence, the love and strength that is the Chili Peppers that has already preceded this event in our lives and hearts wholly embrace us and set the journey for the rest of our lives.
This is the real deal, this is our dream, there is no other ceremony to follow, no other gathering. We want to get married with all of our friends THE Red Hot Chili Peppers and the fans of their music!
I have even written my own vows, with of course, some lines from a Chili Peppers song!
You could say that I am obsessed! And you would be so right - obsessed with love love for my Holly and for the Red Hot Chili Peppers!
Please allow our dream to come true.
