Icon34 THE VOICE On-line

Beginning in 1994 and working closely with Glenn, UK based Merseysiders, Karen & Pete Allen created the Official GLENN HUGHES Fan Club and in 1995 published the first issue of the Fan Club Magazine, THE VOICE. With their kind permission, it's our great pleasure to present all 11 issues for you to enjoy once again.

Morjens Karen and Allen,
ISO KIITOS!!! Huge Thank You!!!! I can't thank You enough- this is amazing stuff, can't believe that I'm reading these "old" magazines and Glenn's letters, You guys are GREAT!!! (this goes of course to David and Shirean too) It would be really nice to read how this all got started, how you got all those members, how you spread the word...since back in '94 I didn't know anything 'bout GH fan club!!!

Terveiset Suomesta,

T

Well, what can I say!

Firstly, great job and thanks to David and Shirean for the kind words and for really doing justice to what we did with The Voice. Looking through those archive pages really did bring back some great memories and great times.

The Voice was genuinely real hard work, a slog at times, but being so close to Glenn really did balance all that out. Yeah, we we're lucky, we obviously made some kind of impression on Glenn the first time we met him (more likely Karen than me) and within a month he'd called us and visited our house in Merseyside to ask us to run his Fan Club world wide.

As the first issue says in the introduction we always answered letters sent to us (when a stamped envelope was included) or at least we tried to! There was a stage at the height of the club when this was almost impossible we were getting that many, so I have to believe we were doing something right because of all the responses. With us both working too it really was hard work. We were often up at 1 or 2 in the morning putting magazines in envelopes, or membership details or cards. But it was worth it, believe me, it really was!

The Fan Club allowed us direct contact with Glenn. Weekly phone calls, seeing him when he was in the UK, meeting his mum and dad (who we are still great friends with to this day) and being privileged to see and hear things that other fans would never, ever get to know about. I can remember Karen ringing him in the studio once, during the recording of Feel, and Glenn immediately put Pat Thrall on the phone to speak with her which was great and something that we could never had hoped for in a month of Sundays otherwise.

The other main benefit was that we made loads of friends all around the world, and especially in the UK and we always bump into friendly faces at all Glenn's gigs where we a great time and relive those memories.

Sadly, it had to end. The speed of the internet meant that info on Glenn through The Voice would always be second hand and as such club numbers began to fall and, economically, we couldn't sustain it any longer. But the legacy, in a different form, has been passed to others, notably David and Shirean here in the Fan Forum.

It's great, I'm on it all the time and you may have seen the review of The Legends show I did which David kindly posted from the Manchester gig ... pics included.

So that was it. It really was a privlege doing The Voice ... we hope you all enjoyed it and got something out of it. We got a personal friendship with Glenn, and now Gabi as well, which exists still today.

To all ... keep up the Faith.

Love,
Pete & Karen.

It's easily done...but I'll defer your request to Karen & Pete...it's their baby...so if they say it's ok, we'll modify the pages with a per issue Zip file link...if not, we won't

Well David, either way I'm gonna read all the issues, but it will be much easier and cheaper for me (and others I suppose) to have them on my hard drive. I can also download them one by one which would take me much time. And that's why I think that Karen and Pete should respond positively on this matter since I don't consider this to be anything illegal since all of the issues are already on the net. Don't you agree

David ... it's OK with us if you create the zip files so that members can download onto their PCs.

The Fan Club will not be resurrected so there would be no opportunities to raise funding by selling 'past issues', so let the true GH fans in the Forum have the chance to download them for themselves.

Cheers ... Pete.

Ok, thanks for letting me know Pete.

All - I've put a link to a Zip file within each issue. They vary in size from 2MB to nearly 5MB each.

Enjoy

The Voice fanzines

I just wanted to thank retrospectively Karen and Pete Allen who put out The Voice fanzines from '94-'96 in the UK. Karen and Pete kept us informed on Glenn's albums, his tours & reviews. Indeed Glenn wrote a page or two for the magazine in his own handwriting and was in touch with Karen & Pete. This was all pre Computer era for me and the thrill of seeing that A5 envelop on the door mat,remember that feeling folks?
From time to time I still see photos from the magazine appear on this forum.
If you are still out their Pete & Karen, a zillion thanks.

A great reminder of the journey all of Glenn's fans have made.
I met Glenn at Mike Lloyd Records in Wolverhampton signing copies of 'Blues' & 'From Now On' in 94.Glenn was playing The Wulfren Hall that night. John Ogden was with Glenn at the signing.
Thanks to Karen and Pete
