I must confess, I wasn’t a fan of you until “All that you need is now” in 2010. Of course I liked your music in the 80’s but that was just randomly. I don’t remember much about that time when it comes to music. I do remember my mother taped songs from the radio on a cassette and one of them were “A view to kill” But I didn’t know it was you until years later. Maybe the first song I heard was “Rio” But it could also be “Union of the snake” or “Hungry like the wolf” I know “Rio” was the first video I saw. We got cable in 1987 which opened a lot of great things. Like music videos. Those short films like you also have done. “Girls on film” was even banned on MTV. Today, when you think about it, it was kind of silly. They show even worse videos these day. Why your video “Girl Panic!” was...

Hey Daniel Radcliffe! It’s me. Seeing as how we’re inching closer to Thanksgiving with every passing second, and your brand new movie, Victor Frankenstein opens today, I thought it might be nice to, you know, say thanks. Why? Because you’ve been in our lives for a really long time now, and it’s about time we gave thanks for you. Maybe this could be a new Thanksgiving tradition. You know, you release a brand new movie, and we all flock to the theaters to see it and think, “man, Daniel Radcliffe is the best.” Something like that. These thanks have actually been brewing within us for a while. If you can believe it we’ve actually been virtually hanging out with you since 2001. 2001!! That was 14 years ago, way back when you were 11 (not that I know your age in 2001 off the top of my...

Dear Freddie It's been 19 years today since the world found out about your AIDS. I don't remember the day, nor the day you passed away as I was only 6 years old at that time. The world has changed a lot through the years since your passing. Mobile phones has become something everyone has now, TV's are flat and in high definition, music is mainly made on computers, computers which are small enough to carry around and they work very fast. People mostly listen to music on something called MP3 player and the device is tiny yet holds a huge storage capacity, you'd easily be able to store all songs ever made by you and Queen in one device. Pretty much the only thing that hasn't changed much is people's love and passion for you and for Queen. The music you made, the songs you sang, they are...

Dear Paul, First let me say that, though you're not my favorite Beatle (I'm a John guy), I have come to love you the same way I love the Johnny, Joey, Tommy, De Dee, Rick, Robin, Tom , Bun E., Russell and Ron. You're not a big brother, not a father figure, just someone I have lived vicariously through since I saw how much tail you were pulling down. As luck would have it, I was raised in a Stones household completely devoid of Beatles music. Oh, my mom had every damn single Ricky Nelson ever put out, but had apparently been abducted by aliens the night the Beatles appeared on Sullivan. As for my Dad, his love for the Stones, Janis Joplin, Dr. Hook and Canned Heat might lead you to believe he was one hell of a hippie, but, in fact, he was an ex-Air Force pain in my ass from the...

Recently, in an interview with Uncut magazine, you hinted at the possibility that you would most likely retire sometime in the near future, thus ending your storied career as one of most rock music’s most recognizable and influential guitarists. Your decision seems to be the result of some deep soul searching and continued suffering of what you call “odd ailments.” Surely you have earned the right to enter this next phase of life. After all, you’ve been in the music game for some 50+ years now. That’s a really long time to be in any profession, much less one as fickle and physically taxing as the music business. As you can imagine, many of your biggest fans greeted this news with trepidation. They argue that your skills haven’t diminished in the least and that you still have any number...

Dear Malcolm, Angus, Cliff, Phil and Brian acdcfans.net represents an extremely vocal group of your most loyal fans. Just a handful of us have collectively attended more than 157 of your concerts (and counting) since 1978 and estimate we’ve contributed more than USD$84,000 (and counting) to the AC/DC juggernaut. We are just the tip of the iceberg. Now while those numbers may seem insignificant given your touring history and estimated wealth, for us the numbers represent a passionate investment of time and hard earned money in your music. We are AC/DC fans for life, and we wouldn’t change that for the world. However, there is something we’d like AC/DC to consider changing… The setlist. On the current Black Ice World Tour, during which some of us having travelled across...

Dear Cassper, It was over 2 weeks after the release of your ‘refiloe’ album before I got to hear it. I was unable to buy the album because of the local district I found myself in for this last few months of 2015. I haven’t seen the album in this southern part of Nigeria. Thanks to the site that leaked your album, I couldn’t have waited to find where to buy it. Finally, I listened to the album after enjoying my hot-spiced jellof rice only to hear you excrete it from my body before digestion. Yes, I had to smoke it off. You are the best rapper in Africa 2015 by all awards and ramifications and you are my best rapper too. You have been hitting up since ‘428 to LA’ to ‘Hey There’ down to ‘Travel the World’. Maybe you have been much busy pin-pointing out people in your league than...

Justin, I read excerpts of your new interview in Complex magazine, and like many others, what jumped to my attention was that you want to live like Jesus – and you weren’t ashamed to say it. Those are powerful words, and I believe you sincerely mean it. I’m just wondering, though, if you understand what it really means to live like Jesus. Can I take a moment and share some of my personal story? You might find it helpful on your own journey. I became a follower of Jesus at the age of 16 in 1971. At that time I was a long-haired, LSD-using, heroin-shooting, hippie rock drummer (hey, we’re both drummers!), and Jesus completely rocked my world. It wasn’t just a matter of getting rid of drugs and drinking. It wasn’t just a matter of cleaning up my filthy mouth and...

Dear Mark, You probably don’t remember me, but we were students together at Phillips Exeter Academy fifteen years ago. I was a lower (sophomore) when you were a senior, so our paths didn’t overlap much, but I do believe we had one class together – Latin with Mr. Morante. I’m writing for two reasons: first, a quick thank you for Facebook. I’ve always enjoyed it as a social tool, but recently I have discovered how powerful it can be as networking tool to gather people around a common cause. Lately, I’ve connected with parents, teachers, administrators, bloggers, and other activists around the country who are all working passionately toward one goal: getting our local schools back from the powerful corporate and political interests that now strangle them. We share notes and research,...

Dear Drew Barrymore, First off let us just say that we think you are the greatest. Seriously. Even before the BFF acronym existed, you were the celebrity who wore the other half of our imaginary heart necklace: We devoured Little Girl Lost (even when our parents called it “unsuitable” reading material); we spent hours trying emulate your artfully-tousled coif; and we cheered when you flashed David Letterman. Hell, we cheered when you did almost anything—including marrying Tom Green and making those last two movies with Adam Sandler. Because that’s what besties do—we support each other through the good times and the bad. We are also the people who aren’t afraid to give it to you straight, whether that means telling you that your new patchwork dress makes you look like a member of the...
