Original Version of Wanderer??

Hey guys! My name is Lisa and I have been a Marc fan for about 5 years now! I saw him play at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago when he opened for OAR and he played a different version of Wanderer! I have it on some old cd I made like 5 years ago but its all scratched and I want to download it again! Does anyone know where I can find it???
I met Marc last year when he played at my college (IWU) and I asked him why he changed the lyrics b/c its my favorite song and he said that he changed it so long ago that he doesn't even really remember the words to the original version!! So maybe I am totally out of date and I won't be able to find it but just wondering if anyone else knows about the original version and could give me some hints!!!
Marc is so nice in person!!! and he is an amazing performer!! ~Lisa~

It's about the music...

I just discovered that there is this other LJ community out there for Marc and a few of the things I'm reading really bothered me. I am a good friend of Marc's and work with him. It's supposed to be about the MUSIC, not his personal life. What Marc's children look like or if he's married or any of those things really are none of your business unless he's made them pubic information in an interview. What he does backstage or at a venue is NOT for the workers to share with you to share with this community. That is a breach of privacy and not cool. And mostly because it's second-hand information and often times totally untrue.

Marc is an AMAZING musician and I think that's how we all discovered him and why we like him in the first place. What he does in his personal life really doesn't have anything to do with that - this is true of ALL artists. LOVE the music, RESPECT the privacy, and we can all get along.

To all you Marc Broussard fans...I hope it's ok if I brag for a minute but I thought I'd let you in on what I just experienced.

To start I've said before...Marc's brother Ben is married to my first cousin - with that said...I FRICKIN talked to Marc on the phone for a few minutes!!! It was really really cool. I haven't seen him since my cousin's wedding but he remembered me...I think lol. Well that's it for now.

**Peace out**
