LOS BANOS, Calif. (KGO) --A 5-year-old Los Banos boy had the opportunity of a lifetime recently to meet Ringo Starr. The little boy's name is King Tobias, and he lives and breathes Beatles music. But his story is about more than just the Beatles. It's a sovereign tale of survival, inspiration and love.
King has been listening to the fab four since he could barely walk. His mother Cali Tobias believes her son was 2 years old when he first heard a Beatles song on a CD. King listens to the Beatles music constantly on television, radio and CD's and even vinyl. And every nook and cranny of his room is covered in Beatles memorabilia. Cali says the fact that King can sing or listen to Beatles music at all is a miracle since he is the only survivor of a set of triplets. His mother says doctors had little hope King would make it. King not only survived, he's thrived. And he not only sings Beatles tunes, but four months ago he started learning to play Beatles songs.
King's guitar instructor Kyle Chapman has never seen anything like it.
