Manage episode 357905308 series 3378522
EPISODE 017: Most everyone, myself included has a favorite band, musician, composer, or performer, whose music we just love. And whatever it is that intrigues us about this music will be life-changing for us in some way, shape or form. And because we identify and therefore, become emotionally attached to the music, we couldn't help but to extend our love and appreciation to that person or persons who's written played and performed these masterful compositions.
So then what constitutes a SUPERFAN? Firstly, let's define the word fan, which of course is short for the word fanatic which would be an enthusiastic devotee of say, a sport or a performing art, though, usually as a spectator. Another way to define the term fan is an ardent admirer or enthusiast of say a celebrity or a musician.
I'm sure most of us have seen fans in action at concerts during a performance, whether they're holding up signs or wearing t-shirts with the band's logo blazoned across their chest. Or even hanging around the backstage door area. Or maybe, we ourselves have done that in praise of our own favorites. Nevertheless, the devotion is real and taken extremely seriously.
My focus is to celebrate true fandom about those who whole heartedly and genuinely loved the music and its creator in a normal, stable and sound minded way.
So, I'll be introducing three super fans who were nice enough to talk to me about their super fandom.
Our first SUPERFAN is Keith whose love for the American multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, sound engineer, and record producer Todd Rundgren ranks Keith as a number one Todd Rundgren SUPERFAN.
Our next SUPERFAN is Jeff, who is a Bruce Springsteen-- the BOSS SUPERFAN.
And finally, Mia who loves her Harry Styles. Mia calls herself the ex-One Direction members devoted SUPERFAN.
Join Dr. Jen as she talks with these three SUPERFANS about their love for the music, the performer, and what it’s like being a devoted fan.Support the show
