    Thank you for this great answer.

If you pay attention to the radio and even get in touch with people in your area from the BBS, that is your best way to get into a pre/post show meet'n'greet. Not all shows have them though. I went to a festival on Sunday and there wasn't one. There was a "Enter your name in a hat and meet them briefly pre-show through the radio station" meet'n'greet, but I guess because of the size of the venue and other factors, there wasn't one after the show. They even had the buses blocked off, which I haven't seen at an Offspring show before. That is the other way to meet them. Usually, people will wait by the buses after the show. We tried to do that Sunday, but the buses were in a restricted area surrounded by security. Did it the last time they came through, but their tour manager came out and told us they didn't have time to come out and meet the 15 or so people that were waiting. He was super nice though.

    Fan clubs don't bring us closer to the bands. These guys work really hard to stay in touch with their big time fans. You'll find if you pay attention, meeting them and bonus stuff isn't as hard to come by as it is with most bands.

    Noodles posts under the accout "Noodles" with the user title "Band member". He is also a big fan of Twitter.

    I like it the way it is now actually, which to me is a nice balance between too much and nothing.

    They did had an exclusive fan club, they even gave to fans an exclusive fan club CD with B-sides called "CLUB ME" , prior to the mp3 fever began.

    It had The Stooge's and The Damned covers and D.U.I (written by Noodles) and there was also "The Offspring NATION" thingy wich was supposed an exclusive fan zone within this website that you could access by buying CO1 original cds.

    It was kinda lame thou the only "new" thing about it I recall was Offspring live playing KUMBAYA

    I would like them to have an official fan club, but NOT CHARGE

    To have an official fan club with exclusive goodies and things like that requires money, so I don't fault Metallica or Pearl Jam or any of the rest of them for charging money for the access, and then providing a lot of value for that money. It doesn't seem like that sort of a model is something that would work for the Offspring and what they do.

    Maybe Dexter can write a secret song about "official" fan clubs. That would be super. We could all wear buttons and shit. We could all sing the secret official fan club members only song and then know that we are members of the club.
