“FAN to Friend” is filled with stories that will shock you, inspire you and leave you speechless. Fans who have quit their job to follow their favorite group on tour around the world. Fans who have purchased every piece of merchandise available from an artist. Fans who have tattooed their favorite group’s logo on their body before they ever even met that artist. Fans who have eventually become employed by their idols. Fans who have finally grown beyond the title of fan and become an actual friend. These stories are real and so are the friendships.
