"FROM A SMALL TOWN TO A LARGE CITY. BE A GOOD SPORT BUT DON'T GET COCKY. COME ONE COME ALL, YOU'LL RISE AND FALL. GET YOUR SHIT A GOOD LUCK PROSPERITY 

IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN. PLUG YOUR BRAIN AND GRAB A PEN. THIS IS THE GREAT BATTLE OF THE BANDS, RAISE YOUR HANDS YOU ADORING FANS"

Said the host of  "The Great Battle of the Bands" . 

At night of Christmas Eve 2010, Filmore was just an eight year old kid, he was obsessed of how the musicians played every single instruments they can. He hoped that when he turn fifteen, he'll form an epic band, write songs to impress the Judges and win to get into the Hall of Fame. 

His Grandpa came home with a wrapped up blue box. Filmore was curious what was in the box. His Grandpa said open it and see what's inside. As he opened it. He's joyful of what he'd saw. A brand new acoustic Ukulele to play. Now that he had his very own instrument, he was really excited to learn how to play it and write his own songs. His Grandpa warned him that if he becomes the successor of The King of Bands, he shouldn't let his ego out of control, and also to pass the path of music to the beginners.

2017, 19th June

It was just all of his memories of his Grandfather. Just by looking at the ukulele his grandfather gave him, he remembered the times he taught him everything about real music.

At the funeral, before burying his white coffin. He said his final goodbyes, kissed and put his hands on top of the coffin. As the coffin got rolled down through the ground, he through a broken string inside for his soul to have something on the afterlife. 

Your time has come, I'll never forget

those times you taught me how to stand up by myself

And all of the times i've regret

That I've never open up if I needed help

It's always hard for me

seeing you suffer

but you just tried to feel free

and pretend you got stronger and tougher

It was a shame

that you'll never see me shine

but If I get in the hall of fame

I'll build you a silver shrine
