Synopsis: They marched in the Kiss Army. They yelled Garth's a spunk! at Sherbert concerts. They wept bitter tears when it was announced that the members of Take That were going their separate ways. They're the fans, and Fanclub is their story. From The Partridge Family to The Spice Girls, The Beatles to Savage Garden, this book takes a good hard look at the hopelessly devoted and finds out what makes them tick. What does it take to get up onstage and dance with Michael Jackson in front of 50,000 people? Why does nearly every band have a Ringo? Why don't followers of Boyzone want to have sex with the group? Is a Paul Stanley doll anatomically correct? These and even more pressing questions are answered in Fanclub. You are there as we infiltrate an Abba convention. You are there as we hang around an airport waiting for Gary Barlow to arrive. You are there as everyone from John Paul Young to Henry Rollins is interviewed about their followers. You are there as the fans reveal the truth behind the obsession, the elation, the wanting and waiting. Be there - be part of the crowd.
