Taylor is the second great musical obsession of my life. Elvis Presley was the first starting way back in 1957. I am confident that in time Taylor will rank alongside Elvis and The Beatles as one of the greatest musicians of the rock era.

I was late to discover Taylor, I had never even heard of her until 14 March 2009 when she appeared on the televised Sound Relief concert in Sydney. I watched her perform You Belong With Me, Love Story, Our Song, and Change and was instantly hooked! My adult daughter was at the concert with friends, and one of them wondered who but a teenage girl could like her music and she said "my dad". How well she knows me!

My name is Roger and I am very old for a male Swiftie, 66. I think that makes me the second or third oldest person on Taylor Connect!

I am happily married with three adult, and also married, children. My first grandchild was due to be born on the very same day as the last of my Speak Now concerts, but actually arrived two days later on 16th March 2012!. My second grandchild was born 7 months later on 17th October 5 days before Red was released. My third was due in mid December 2013 just after the Red Tour. However she arrived early, 3 weeks before the Sydney concert that my daughter had been planning to go to with me!

I got to go to all three east coast Red tour concerts which made 10 times in all I have seen Taylor perform live (so far!). I think that is 6 times more than the the artists I have seen next most (Cliff Richard and Kylie Minogue). I have posted the best of my Red tour photos here: http://www.twitpic.com/photos/Puggles99

I am now looking forward to the 1989 tour and am going to see it 6 times, in Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne. That will be 16 times I will have seen the amazing Taylor perform!

I mostly hang out on the Aussie thread with lots of great Swifties, come join our conversation!
