This thread is meant for all those fans who discovered Adam later in the game to post their stories. We oldies love to hear how you discovered Adam, what hooked you, your favorite performance/trait/outfit, etc.

Buckle up guys! We're in for a wild ride with Adam at the wheel!!!!

And I'm posting this as a welcome wagon gift....

Have a cigarette ready for afterwards (even if you don't smoke!) icecream.gif

clap.gif Madame clap.gif Excellent idea resurrecting this thread! C'mon newbies, tell us your stories!

I've been around here since the beginning, but I'll tell a story of a new fan I've been working on...

I have a sister who is a devout christian and only listens to christian radio. I gave all my sisters Adam's acoustic EP for Christmas, and this sister kind of wrinkled her nose a bit, and I could tell she was ready to be all judgemental (like some Christians tend to do angry.gif ). She never even opened it and a couple of weeks later she asked if I would mind if she gave it to our cousin who is a fan of Adams. I said sure, that's ok. blarg.gif

A few days later, I sent her a message on Facebook and embedded a youtube of Adam singing "The Prayer" by David Foster. She loved it and actually posted it on her wall, and said she might even open the acoustic CD and give it a listen. (I don't know if she actually has yet, but she did not give it away thumbsup.gif ). Fast forward a few weeks, and she, my mom and I were watching Idol, and this sister loved James Durbin's performance of You Got Another Thing Coming. She was in awe of James' wails, and I told her if you liked that, you're gonna LOVE this. I played Adam singing Born to be Wild on my laptop while she had on my earbuds, and you should have seen her face!!!! She was actually squealing and clapping towards the end, and I kept motioning shhhhh, he's not done yet, listen to that last vocal run.....I GOT HER!!! Rather, Adam got her!

She now wants to see all of Adam's AI performances so I used Madams's Treasure Chest of Links to burn the DVD (thanks Madame!) and she and my mom are going to watch this weekend. After that, I'm going to have her over for dinner and watch the Glam Nation DVD. I fully intend to distract her attention from the TV for the Fever kiss (I know, I know rolleyes.gif ...but baby steps, people!!!).
