    Default Fan Clubs



    Who were members of fan clubs?


    It was a way to follow your favourite bands

    Nowadays there seem to be only a few about; if any

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    Do you know whether if there is a modern day equivalent of that book, and if so, how often would it be published?

    That book seems like a Who's Who of pop music from, I assume around 1983-1984 - I assume that it was partly inspired the NOW! albums that still go strong to this very day.

    I wish I could go back in time 35 years and take advantage of the info in that book.

    (By the way, my house had that same sort of wallpaper 30 years ago when we had it decorated...)
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    The nearest thing to a fan club guide is this website:

    http://www.fanclub.org.uk/

    Not just singers & bands, but also sports stars, actors, objects & items

    Music wise A friend thought it was a great ides to join the Elvis Presley fan club (or one of them anyway) and for some reason thought it was a good idea to join me as well including paying for it. Not cool. Never did like Elvis and this friend was enough anyway but being a part of this club must of been one of his sick jokes. Well I felt sick every time he shoved one of their publications under my nose.

    Cheers. I know that fan clubs were going strong so much in the 1980s and 1990s but you hardly ever hear about them very often these days - they usually point you in the direction of the artiste's record or publishing company these days.
