James Valentine and Maroon5 play at Inaugural Ballsl!

Here is the email and photo that James sent to friends and family

"This was my vantage point. Incredible experience. We almost didn't make it in time because metal detectors had broken down at our gate. The rest of the band went back to the hotel when an officer told us there was "no darn way" we would get in. We saw Mariah Carey and her entourage heading away from the mobbed gate. Somebody said they just saw Jesse Jackson bail. Fred, Chad, Bob Carmichael and I decided to give it a shot anyway. We started edging our way to the gate and they finally slowly started admitting people. We made it in right in time for the invocation."

You should be so proud of your son, he's a great musician and a really nice guy.

PS: Mr. Valentine, I think James should learn spanish so the next time he is visiting Latinamerica, he could stop apologizing for not knowing spanish. Anyway, he was sweet.

It should be noted that the police officer did not use the word "darn." Had he, I would have said, "Gee Whiz! We'll never make it in, Shucks!"

Gee Whiz James, what the "heck" does it matter? *chuckles* Aw shucks, we're just kidding, you know we think you're swell. :o)

PS. We just love the picture of you at the inauguration! What an amazing experience that must have been! You lucky duck!
