In 2004 No Doubt, one of my absolute favorite bands, announced a moratorium, giving each member some time off to do side projects, embark on solo tours, have babies, and play with other bands. In 2009 the band regrouped to go on tour and give me the experience of the most kickass concert in my entire life.
