Fanboy History! Did A Signed George Brett Baseball Inspire Lorde To Write “Royals?” Awesome!

Fanboy History!

I love this… I was on Twitter and I’m a huge… huge fan of Lorde. I honestly thought she was the best performance at the Grammy Awards. So simple and just let her voice kill it. I admit I was really impressed.

So, when I was combing Twitter and saw this tweet by @LordeDaily I almost lost my mind.

George Brett (who I also met back when I was a kid and really inspired me into the world of collecting as an FYI) gave Lorde a signed baseball which inspired her to write “Royals!”

That’s amazing that such a brief fan encounter can have a profound impact not only on one person, but now, how many people has that song impacted and inspired. I love every second of it.

Now according to wikipedia, they say that Lorde only saw the photo, but I’m siding with @LordeDaily on this one because they rock.

Wikipedia says, “Lorde had thought of writing a song about the luxury of pop musicians after seeing an image in the July 1976 edition of National Geographic showing Kansas City Royals player George Brett[5] signing baseballs, with his team’s name emblazoned across his shirt”

Fandom inspiring art, inspiring fandom and more art!

It doesn’t get better than that kids!

Until next time..
