I don't post much but these quotable quote are making me smile, so I'll add one or two from Turning Stone.


Josh (About Alejate) : We decided to do this song in Spanish...
Audience Member: Woo!!
Josh: Yeah, Spanish! Caliente! (Pause) ... I'm a dork.

Josh said how he was glad to be back in Tampa and how he had just been there last April. He looked out at the audience and said, "My, how you've grown!" He also said the audience was "rambunctious." (You betcha!!)

A fan brought a t-shirt up to him that said, basically, that the Grobanites loved him and he loved them....his comment, after "thank you," was along the lines of "This is an 'Aww shucks' moment." The audience loved it!!
Submitted by: FloridaPat


The Whole "Bite Me" Thing was related to a T-Shirt a female fan in the front row gave Josh before one of the songs that had a gator on the front and the words "Bite Me!" printed above the gator. He held it up so he could read it, then turned it around so we could see it and said something like "Bite Me? Hmm... That's Naughty, Naughty!" Then he gave us a trademark smile and placed the shirt on the piano.

Also, before Alejate, as Josh was doing his usual introduction, a bunch of fans started screaming "I Love You, Josh!!" and other things so loud that Josh stopped and answered them, causing him to forget what he was talking about! He said, "What was I talking about again?" A Lot of us (not me because my voice was gone by the point!) screamed "Spanish!" and Josh said, "Oh yeah, Spanish! This is Alejate!"

Fort Myers, FL 1-26-05

There were not many glowsticks "glowing for Vincent and at the end of the song...he called out to everyone "get those glowsticks up..get them up"" and he pushes his hands in the air...

Orlando, FL

Everybody kept yelling out "I Love You Josh" like every time he would pause. And then at one point it was really silent and so Josh like whispers a screaming voice into the microphone "I love you josh" to himself like he is being stupid and then he answers "Well gosh, I love you too" It was hilarious! And then somebody was giving Josh the devil sign, you know the rocker hands that they give at rock concerts and josh is like what does that mean and Lucia says something like its the devil sign and Josh says " Wow now I'm getting the devil signs at my concerts".

Someone brought him a tshirt that said, "You drummed your way into our hearts in Peoria" or something similar, before he did the drum solo...so he said, "So much for surprises!"
Submitted by: Jenscott


The funniest thing that happened in Peoria was right before Vincent. Tariqh and Josh were there, on stage and Josh was bantering (I have no clue what he was saying) and Lucia just sort of dances up and hops and lands right behind him, very innocent and childlike in her little hop. It was cute. She smiles and Josh says, "Lucia, do you have something you wanna share with the class?" She quietly tells him she was getting a drink and spilled. He says loudly, "You spilled? Well, it's ok to tell them! There's only 10,000 people out there!" and points in a semicircle across the arena. She was so funny and giggling about it. Josh got a towel off of the piano and said something like, "Here, we won't look" and he stationed himself right in front of her, as if to block the audience's view while she was toweling off.

Josh was very playful with the audience. He said, "I went to my bedroom," and the audience went wild with that, "to go to sleep." "Shouldn't go there," but the bedpost must've moved three feet because I got a bump in my head." "So if anyone here is from the Seelbach Hotel, this one's for you."

Josh: "EXERCISE!!!!" *runs all over stage*

Josh: "Where'd my hat go?? My hair looks like I stuck my finger in an electrical socket! It's bad to have bad hair days in front of 15,000 people. I look like a Muppet."

Josh: "Kiss me, I'm Irish"
*sneaky look on face
*turns around and sneaks a kiss from the frog, trying not to let us see*

Josh: "Yeah... I'm not cool enough to NOT acknowledge my fans. Like, '*applause* Yeah, whatever... Now here's another song. It's from the seventies. You... may know it."

Josh: "Here's a factoid for you. Four years ago, I performed the national anthem in this very arena. It was fun! ....That's the end of the factoid. .....GO BASKETBALL!!"
