Remember when we met in Denver
Em recorded “Stan” in November of 1999. Em was a part of Warped Tour in the summer of that year, which included a July concert in Denver.
Stan is a metaphor for Marshall’s obsessive fans. In the last part of this interview, Eminem’s grandma talks about hearing that a gay fan of Slim tried hugging and kissing him after begging Shady to let him go backstage at a Denver concert.
Also, Stan later claims that they should be together. Perhaps Marshall based part of Stan’s character on the fan mentioned above in the interview.
