Forgotten Rebels Website Celebrates 20 Years
I can't believe that The Forgotten Rebels website is now 20 years old!!
Back in 1996 I found myself searching for information on my favourite band, the Forgotten Rebels, and wasn't able to find much more than bits and pieces. I was really surprised that this important punk band didn't have their own website so I took it upon myself to put up a webpage for them with a list of their albums, show dates and other information.
Almost immediately I was contacted by tons of Rebels fans sending me information and stories about the band to fill up the site. A couple months later the page got the attention of the band and I was contacted by Jeff Campbell giving me their blessing to become the Official Forgotten Rebels website! This was amazing, I never thought that would ever happen.
Two years later I got an email from Mickey saying that he and his friend were looking at my website and it was the first time that Mickey had ever seen a webpage on the Internet, and it was my website!! I couldn't believe it!
Seeing the Rebels live this past weekend at the Legends Valley Festival was a great gift for the twenty years I've been working on the page. The Rebels will also be hitting their 40 year anniversary in 2017 and I can't wait to see what the future brings for the band!
