It seems you had fun putting your stories together. If writing is something you enjoy, I encourage you to keep doing it.

I'd love to look back someday and say "I knew him when ..."

You'll still be saying that, but for different reasons. You are typing to the (potential) future PM of Canada. Thanks for the encouragement, everyone. It means a lot.

Okay, here's another Paul. (Disclaimers: featuring Paulrus, taking place in 1979, and all depictions to persons other then the named and Paulrus are completely unintentional. PM me if you want to be featured.) Here goes:
"This is Paul McCartney, and I am here to announce I am taking a tour of South East Asia and Australia, with all ticket buyers being entered into a draw for a private meeting with Paul in London, a tour of London, featuring Abbey Road Studios and other areas. The winner will win round trip airfare, a 5star hotel and a front row seat at a Manchester United/Manchester City soccer match." This was what millions of people heard, including 16 year old Beatles fan James. James got 10th row seats at his Melbourne concert, which he called "the night of his life." But that thrill was superseded by the announcement of the winner in the meeting sweepstakes. James had no real hole of winning, so when he heard it was him, he fainted. When he was back to normal, he talked to McCartney, learning he was to leave for London soon, where he would be given a replica Hofner bass, as well as some lessons on the thing. Well, that was just great. James was so pumped, and McCartney didn't disappoint. "I was just on Cloud Nine," according to James. "I just was in awe. I mean, I'm talking to PAUL FREAKING MCCARTNEY!!!" Paul, to be fair, also had a blast. "Spending time with a different James, well that was awesome. He was an attentive bassist, a knowledgeable Beatles fan, and a person with millions of questions. I hope the rest of these winners are like him." They started with a general tour of London, filled with Paul's anecdotes and stories, while sharing the sites. He showed them their first London apartment, Cavendish Avenue, and Abbey Road studios. The next day, James was presented with his bass, while Paul shared more stories and they passed more sites. Although, the third day was one of the best. McCartney had a session at Abbey Road that day, so James tagged along, doubling the session to a tour/session. And then, McCartney said to James, "I've got this song, and I can't get a semi decent bassline. You try." James thought he was kidding. If Paul, one of the best bassists ever, can't get a good line, what could he do? But he laid down a line, which McCartney used. McCartney, in fact, wrote James a song to use for his band back in Australia, The Blackbirds. The song was entitled Two Gunslingers, which, combined with the fact Macca got them on EMI as their label, got Lee Eastman to manage the money, and got some of Rock's greatest to write them some songs, The Blackbirds career was launched, combining the elegance of Let It Be with the folk of Simon and Garfunkel, with shades of punk as well. They created a unique style, aided by the friendship of Canadian lyricist Evan [not real last name] Tolbert, they rode the charts. And their success can be traced back to one fateful in 1979.

That was awesome. a-hard-days-night-john-6 
To be honest, you're right. I probably would faint if that happened. That would be amazing.

I love the fact that you remembered that I'm a Manchester United fan, haha. Did you go back to another thread, or do you just have an awesome memory?

Oh, and this line made me laugh.

If this actually happened, it would just about make my entire life.

Thanks, Sun King! That was brilliant.
I love your stories, cos you can tell that you enjoyed writing them. They're well written, too.

Keep up the good work! 

Oh, by the way, I'm actually 14. a-hard-days-night-george-4 But the story is still awesome!

It's called artistic license. Well, I did know there were Man U fans on the forum, so I guessed (I couldn't care less, but I cheer for Chelsea) and it was a blast to not have to bored between periods (NEENER NEENER NEENER, StarWisher!!! Chara failed!!!). Glad you enjoyed it Paulrus (See why I said leave it to the author??)

Edit: Paulrus, my memory is that good. Also, this might be my favourite.

Okay, here is a George (StarWisher, 1976, the rest of that c***.) Here goes:
George was as down as people should be allowed to be. Patti was getting his money for nothing, and nothing he did could stop it. So, he needed to record. He did, until the day when he met his future second wife, a charming American who, unbeknown to Harrison, had loved him since she was born, but put out an aura of calm and cool. But, for her, these were far from calm days. She remembered them as "hectic days..... And I was always pinching myself, have I just got George FREAKING Harrison? But to George I was cool. I remember all my friends trying to get me to get them stuff. It was a fun dating season." George was more direct, saying, "She was one who I trusted, in a way I couldn't completely trust Patti. It was fun." Harrison proposed after a recording session, with the results of his proposal much more successful then his futile day at the office. He was happy, she was happy. But they hit a snag. George was still legally married to Patti!!! So, the day they got the formal divorce, they started planning their wedding. The bride to be insisted that ALL 4 Beatles be in attendance, that invites need be given to George Martin and his wife, and Eric could come with Patti. The wedding went off without a hitch, with the Beatles even singing an impromptu version of Here There And Everywhere (and sounding half decent even though they were plastered.) The couple moved over to America, got a nice property in Hawaii, and then decided he should release an album quickly, to maximise sales in the post wedding George Mania. However, George couldn't get any lyrics. So,'when he told his wife about it, she gave him 7 sets of lyrics, told him to keep two songs as instrumentals, and told him to write twomore lyrics by himself, and the record would be written. The album that came out, "Songs from a Loving Couple" was a smash, revitalising his standing in the industry, and proving the bride's theory of getting an album out fast would work. The couple lived happily, until......

Okay, here it is (starting December 6, 1980.)
Imagine this. You're a huge Beatles fan, and you listen to them whenever possible. Now, what if George Harrison walked into your office? Well, that was the scenario that Zig Ziggerson dealt with. He was shocked, and he almost fainted. But he was saved by a coworker, who knew that Zig was in shock, bought him some time by saying, "Oh hello, you realise that you look an awful lot like George Harrison?" Harrison laughed, appreciating the joke, who then said, "Really? I never noticed. Yep, I'm George. And you are?" Te coworker gave his name, and Zig replied, in tempered tones, said, "Zig Ziggerson, the honourable leader of the New England George Fans Association. But then again, I'm the only member, but still." George was charmed by his hosts, and he decided to reveal his business. "I need a worker. Or, more truthfully, two. How about you two? I'd prefer to have some fans to talk to." They were stunned. Was George Harrison, the George Harrison, asking them to help him? "We'll be together," they said together, "for 40 years," and then bowed. George was smitten with them, but their relationship changed 3 days later. John had died. George was stunned. What was he going to say, was it a press conference, was it a statement, what? Zig said wait until it's confirmed. And, Zig was right. John was later deemed still alive, and Zig soon became one of his greatest allies. And, he got Zig a gift because of it. He got the exact 12 string Rickinbacker guitar used on AHDN, a bass replica of Paul's Hofner, and a Casino like John's. Zig became his confidant, and friend. But George's greatest gift was the use of lyrics written by Zig on one of his albums, thereby rewarding Zig with plenty of royalties, much appreciated by Zig wife, jokingly referee to as Zag. But, his world cabinet when he was asked to bring the bass replica to a special Tom Petty/Neil Young/George concert, because each of them thought the other one's bassist would show. Zig ended up playing the entire show, leading to things he never dreamed of....……

These stories are really good Sun King. And I like how you've started to do stories including members of the forum in it and how personalized they are. They are such fun to read, I can't wait for the rest and to read them.
