My name is Mariana, and I’m the biggest Denny Laine fan in Brazil! No kidding!
I have been a fan of the Beatles for over 20 years. In 1998, I started to be more curious about Denny Laine, Paul’s bandmate and songwriting partner in the 70’s.
So, I connected to the web and began my search for information on him. By then, the world wide web was not that WIDE, so I didn’t come accross a lot of stuff. The best thing I found was a web board on imusic.com, where 2 great Denny Laine fans used to talk to each other. I started talking to them and asking for any info they could provide. I learned a lot with them!
Of course, I became a fan. But I didn’t have any of his albums, so my next step was to go to Amazon.com and buy some of his solo stuff. When my CDs arrived, I was thrilled! I just loved his music, it was as great as his Wings stuff, or even better!
Shortly after, I built the Super Denny Laine page, which was hosted on Angelfire. I decided to do so because there was not one single site dedicated exclusively to this great musician. The reason I wrote it in English was that I wanted to connect to Denny Laine fans all over the world! (So pardon me if there are mistakes, English is not my mother language 😉 ) Better yet, I ended up getting in touch with THE MAN himself, around 2005.
Years went by and I ended up not updating the site so much, mostly because I was not a teenager anymore. 🙂 That means new responsabilities: work, marriage, kids… Time was short!
And it still is! But the old site started to bother me, because eventually I get e-mails from Denny Laine fans, so I knew people were still visiting it, and it was so old! That was when I decided to move it to WordPress and start fresh!
I really hope you like it. And if you want to contribute, you can e-mail me! I’d love to hear from you!
