What are your favorite FAN websites for artists/bands besides U2?

I'm really curious to see what other fan sites people love.

Mine, as I've stated before are:
REM: www.murmurs.com
Radiohead: www.greenplastic.com

Oh! And www.shadowcabinet.net/mambo also for The Church. It's a wonderful archive of all things Churchy.

hmmm...i can't think of any other music sites i go to. i love inxs but there's not really any good sites around anymore, most of them have closed their doors or are now just a michael hutchence tribute site. their official site, http://www.inxs.com is good though.

*semi-shameless self promotion*

This is my Ryan Adams quotes and banter site. I have put countless hours of work into it, but it's a labor of love. I was compiling this for my own kicks, but I decided to make it public in case others would enjoy it...and they do.

From Bonochick's site:

"Fuck you - I make more money in two days than you do in a year."

"I did the Gap ad because who says no to $30,000 an hour? I don't! I'm sorry if that's selling out, so be it. Yes, I sell out. I do Gap ads so that I don't have to work in a factory. Also, I don't mind their clothes."

"I turned [Cold Mountain] down because they said, 'Well, you can come to Romania, and you can have three or four lines, and you get to play a banjo made out of a pumpkin.' I'm like, 'Fuck you, man.' I make that money in two gigs."

"I don't make a ton of money doing this; not that I care."
Priceless.

I recently found a neat (though ugly) Doors site that has amazingly thorough overviews of their first two albums (so far). Not my "favorite site EVAR!", but still neat.

Murmurs and greenplastic.com as well.

Paul Westerberg: Man Without Ties

(I'm not sure if that's a fan site though -- he doesn't have an official record-company website, so this fansite is considered the official site. If that makes any sense?)

The Replacements: The Skyway

Robyn Hitchcock: The Glass Hotel

The Jesus and Mary Chain: april skies

To me it makes sense. One of the sites I mentioned above (Shadow Cabinet) was for several years the de facto official site for The Church, as they didn't have their own or a record company site (hell, some of those years they didn't even have a label). They even put Shadow Cab's addy on a couple of their cds.

Very nice site, Khanada! I was looking at your cd collection... no depeche mode? thought you liked them. And no pic of you? The tattoos look good though. Oh, last question what's Khanada???

None, really.

I sometimes go to http://www.foreverdelayed.org.uk for Manics stuff, but not often.
