Hello and Welcome!

I finally decided to make this community because, well...I just wanted to.

As most of you would know, Rick Astley has come back into the current sphere of pop culture, as a cyber-punchline of sorts due to the 'rick-rolling' phenomenon.

For me, it was an amazing flashback to a simpler time for me, since I hadn't thought about Mr. Astley since the late 80's/very early 90's, when i was an ardent 12-13 year old fan.

While most would dismiss him as a flash-in-the-pan teenybop idol of the 80's, hairdo and all; it wasn't until i really listened to his music beyond the first two albums he put out that i realized the depth of his talent.

Also, i noticed on the internet there were a small community of fans still listening to Rick, so i was like...what the hell!

so, join up and let's talk...post pics and or vids from concerts, links for news, interviews, insights about your favorite Astley songs/albums.

here are some links you may not have known about:

http://youtube.com/user/rickastleyfanclub - YouTube Rick Astley video channel

http://www.rickastley.co.uk/ - unofficial fan site with moderated forums and links

http://www.imlconcerts.co.uk/quarry.htm - Rick's headlining a "here and now" tour in the UK this summer along with other 80's brit-pop artists like Bananarama and Heaven 17(!)

so, yeah...i CAN'T be the only crazy one out there...!
