Mine was a bit late but they took it. Much appreciation for all the work that's going into it!

You guys did such a great job! I just don't have the creativity that some of you have and never felt able to submit anything.
There's an 8 year old on there! His submission is great!

edit to add--those Brazillians--crazy bunch
also had no idea there was a group of people who know each other from the mobile site, I'm not even sure I know what that is.

The book was lots of fun to read today. Love the creativity and sincerity involved. I sent mine in later than I wanted...if I had really given it more thought, we could have used our group photo from NYC. That would have been fun. Oh well. There's always next year!!

First of all, Jamila, Jan, Marco (our eurofoofriends) congratulations for the amazing job!

Some entries are cover bands, some are music blogs, and most are stamped fan clubs logos , as in our case, the Foo Fighters Brazil is an official Fan Club, SAM and the band agree with that. With over 50 thousand Facebook likes and nearly 3000 active members. The FFBR not only publishes the official news, but also translates to thousands of Brazilians who do not speak English, and has additional content such as rare photos, news of the side projects, reviews of shows, and of course, humor. We did all this without earning any money, a team of ten people working day and night for thousands who have the best and quickest information.

If you look you will see that there are messages of Brazilians with FFBR logo and other Brazilians who have not. As you can imagine, not all Brazilians are part of FFBR so when we announced the Dave’s Birthday book, we made it clear that they could be sent directly to the FF ITALIA (another fan club that has been doing a wonderful job) or send to our staff review and put in an art so we take the opportunity to put the logo FFBR doing so all our fellows can realize our strength and unity.

And our work has paid off with several declarations from Dave and the SAM team directly to us and all the Brazilians!

I think, I speak for the whole Bbook-Team when I say we did enjoy the work on this. Leecy's tradition has to be kept. Thanks to Jamilia and Marco, work with you was very nice. Looking forward to further projects.

I get all that, I just don't see the need to plaster advertising all over a birthday book.

someone is jealous here...

This is not advertise
Advertise will look like:
"Foo Fighters BR only for $0.99 per month!"
"Access foofightersbr.com and you will recieve a gift!"

But I do not think it is important we stay here discussing this!

Well advertising, branding, call it what you want, I just didn't think it was appropriate as I looked through the entries and it kept appearing on them all. I'm not jealous, fan sites aren't about competition, but yes let's just leave it there.

Hi everyone,

I wanted to say- what an amazing job you all did on the birthday book this year. I felt really bad about not having the energy to pull it off, but as a few of you now know, it's not easy and it can be a bit life-consuming (but for a good cause!) so just for my health's sake, I needed to back off this year.

The book looks amazing and I'm grateful that the tradition continues. I know how much it means to Dave as well so .

I promise I'll be back next year. I'm slowly on the road to recovery and appreciate all of your well-wishes here. Thanks again, everyone. I love you.
