Daughtry Forum - Can You Help Me? - Yes
we have a brand
new forum, read why below
If you have stopped by the Chris
Daughtry Fans Forum anytime recently you know we had
a terrible problem. Apparently some spamming
jerks have developed an automated script that can
find older PHP based forums and automaticly spam
them. I tried many times to stop this, banning
them by IP address and trying to patch security
holes. All to no avail!
Today I made the hard decision to
take down the old forum and all the content both
good and bad. If it was just some spammy stuff
I may have been able to keep working on it and save
the good stuff but you see there was a real problem
there. Most of the spam was porn and drug
related. While many of you are adults, many of
you are also kids and while we can't shelter
children from everything I can not be in anyway a
part of exposing any child to filth!
So now I really need your help, you
see the old forum was bringing lots and lots of
visitors to the site. Now all those posts are
gone and the forum empty. So how can you help?
First understand the old forum is
100% gone so to post in the new one you have to
register again. I apologize for this but it is
the only way to purge the scum from our midst!
So I am asking all the fans if you could go to the
new forum and register, then do one post or one
reply. Just something simple because as new
people show up a dead forum never takes off.
If you could take just a moment to
sign up and post something about Chris, the Band or
even about American Idol would really help me to
regain what I lost when I took the old forum down.
the New Daughtry Forum
Do you want to know how to build
sites and a business online the way I do it?
the last year I got a lot of questions from fans
about how I built this site, why I built it, etc and
just who I am (well that is me right there on the
left). The reality is I am a huge fan and a
step father. When I heard Chris audition and
then heard him talk about his step kids I felt an immediate
affinity for him. I built this site
with out fancy graphics or super design just to be
my way to make Chris more real to his fans.
I also took the time to do the
things that made this little site rank at the top of
Google for "Chris Daughtry" and a lot of
other terms and in time built a list of 25,000 fans,
which probably includes you.
I and a few others are now putting
together a system to teach other people from newbies
to pros how to do things like this. I will not
subject the members of my Chris Daughtry site to a
lot of hype or even much about this unless you have

Your Questions, Answered, Sort
of you who read the November Newsletter may recall that
a person had contacted me claiming to be the mother
of one of the band members from Daughtry. She
promised to set up a call for me to speak to this
member and Chris, things seemed legit on this so I
asked you to send in your questions.
Now either this person was not the
mother of a band member OR she was but simply could
not get the call set up. Either way I have
never gotten any answers back from her after asking
your for your questions. So I DO NOT
HAVE official answers from Chris or the
band. However, I thought I would address in my
personal opinion one of the most common ones and
tell you what I know about the most popular one.
First the most common question has
been, when is Daughtry going on tour?
Based on comments Chris made back in
November on a news broadcast I saw, I feel this will
be March of this year. Unless something
changes that should be the beginning of a tour I am
sure will run all through the coming summer.
We will tell you all when it is announced.
the other question which was asked a variety of ways
was about the tone of the songs on the first
CD. To quote ya'll "why so many sad love
songs", etc. Now I have NO INSIDE INFO on
this but as a guy who wrote a lot of poetry in his
early 20s after coming back from the Army during
those "trying to figure it all out years"
I have a theory.
A writer of songs and poetry will
often do his or her best work when you are sad or
mad or some other emotion that is considered
negative is in you. When you young and alone
you reflect and you find what is called the
"muse" and often your best work will just pour out of you. So
I figure while Chris was struggling in the beginning
and before he met his wife and fell in love a lot of
this type of thing helped him to do a lot of
writing. Much was probally pieces here and
So he gets the chance to record an
album and must begin work in September and that
album must be ready to
release in November, which is not a long time to
make a new album. Of course wanted to
write a lot of his own music, right?
So to get
it done you dig out all that old material and that
part of you comes through, the young man, struggling
in relationships, love and life. Now that is
just my guess but somehow I think there may be
something to it.
What do you think, sounds like
a good topic for someone to add to the new
forum, doesn't it? And yes that was a hint!
