Even if the original bands sometimes got their fancy, expensive looking websites, it still seems that the really good, serious fan sites are the best, the most interesting and the most reliable. They are administrated by true lovers of the band, looking with the "Fan Eye" on every aspect of the band and listening with the "Fan Ear" on the music. On many occasions you got the"I-saw-it-here-first" experience on fan sites - and that´s a really good feeling!
