I remember when I was a young teenager in the '90s, there was a sort of home-made fanzine that I used to get ... I'm sure the old-timers here remember it.

Anyway, I seem to recall seeing a reprint of a handwritten Christmas card that Dennis sent to the fan club ... If my memory is correct, I believe it said something like, "Thank you to all of my fans who took the time to write to me in the Dennymania newsletter", and was dated very close to the end (maybe December 23, 1983?).

Kind of interesting that Dennis was writing Christmas cards/fan letters during this period ... it's always been assumed that Dennis was sort of "out of it" at this time, but this would suggest he might have been a little more together.

Any thoughts or memories? Anyone have a scan of this card?

I was a subscriber and I've got that issue in a box in my basement...just saw it the other day. Unless someone beats me to it (and feel free to do so), I'll try and get it uploaded here.

Hope it's ok to link to your thread with scan over on Pet Sounds forum, if it isn't I'll delete this.

Really touching if sad (date looks like it could be the 23rd)  Cry
Text is "Dear Chris,
Please send my warmest holiday wishes to all the nice people
who have taken the time to write to me in the Dennymania newsletter.
Sincerely, (signature)" Love

It may be dictated but I believe the words and feelings behind them were real.

I've been a subscriber of this club since 1992. I can see if my scanner will work, and I'll do what I can in scanning a shot of what you are asking for.

Glad to hear Denny was Denny to fans until the very end... Cry

And production aside, Id so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591
