What is the very first memory of Hanson that you have?
I first saw Hanson on UK TV in 1997 on Top Of The Pops. I was stunned by their confidence, talent and music, but I was also overawed by Taylor”s style. I didn’t become a fan until 2000, when TTA was released although my son bought MON in 97 and played it constantly.
How many times have you seen Hanson in concert? Favorite concert memory?
approx 30 times. My favourite concert memory is when they sang A’int No Sunshine in Manchester England 2007, although the first show I saw in 2003 and the show when I was reporter in 2005 are also very special. The memories are all about the excitement of the live experience, of being so close to the talent and art and thinking of Hanson, but also little personal moments when I felt a part of something amazing.
What is your favorite Hanson song and why?
I have many and none if you get my meaning. I love them all for different reasons. If I had to pick just one to take to a desert island with me it would be Tonight because it tells a story and references so many other songs.
Why do you like/love Hanson?
I love that their music started a chain reaction for me that awoke my love of all music and gave me something to care deeply and honestly about. The music and the men have integrity and honesty and I trust them and their music. I do not find anything false or selfish in them and I admire their resilience and determination and creativity. Their career and journey is something i respect and support without reservation.
How long have you been a Hanson fan?
I became a fan in May 2000 and joined H.net in July 2000. I have been a member ever since.
