    I think a subscrpition to the Van Halen "Inside" magazine was the closest thing that ever came to being a fan club. You'd get newsletters once in a while and that's about it.

    Back in 1984 I joined the Van Halen fan club. You got a signed certificate, 8x10 pictures of each band member, some stickers and a pin.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    At one time the "Inside" magazine was great. Every month I looked forward to it. Behind-the-scene photos, stories and all kinds of updates on the band.

    There was an offical fan club around the FW-84 days like most bands at the time. You would get a membership card, a kooky pin or something, a few 8 x 10 with preprinted signatures and maybe like a letter "written" by the band.

    "The Inside" was the official vh magazine for a brief period of time during 98 although the band had nothing to do with it otherwise recognize it.

    This place is as good as its gonna get as far as fan club goes......

    cool, wasn't sure how much was actually documented re fan club details. i became a fan in early '84 at the age of 12...a little too young to be plugged into the scene! My collection includes all published issues of the Inside...was great while it lasted...and i agree...the links is a great fan club!
    ...and in the end, on dreams we will depend...
