As I sit here and try to write a critical review on a short film that I really do not care about, I thought about making this post. I have been a fan of Rob Thomas ever since his Matchbox Twenty days. I fell in love with that band from the first time I heard the acoustic guitar on the song "3AM". Every word spoke to me, and I was obsessed.
Anyway, I have calmed down a bit. Matchbox Twenty has also calmed down a bit, but Rob Thomas' solo career has really taken off. While I still have a strong preferance for Matchbox Twenty, Thomas' voice still speaks to me. Especially in the song below. "Her Diamonds" is a song he wrote for his wife who suffers from a "lupus-like" autoimmune disease. Hearing Thomas' amazing voice describe what his wife goes through, and his reaction to it, had me hooked. I'm also glad he told the backstory because this song was very popular and I think helped to spread some awareness about autoimmune diseases.
Enjoy the song and the video!
