What it means to be a lifelong music fan

There is a generally agreed-upon set of rules among young and hungry music fans: You show up early, you stay late, you find new things, you stand in the front. That's how Amber Taufen learned to love music. It's how she met her husband, in fact. But in this week's music feature, now posted on the Backbeat blog, she talks about how her relationship with music is changing as she gets older and takes on more responsibility.
