I used to be a avid reader and then sometimes contributor on this Viva La Musica site in the late 90's-early 2000's. i've since lost contact with the website founder and it just came to my attention that the host service has gone out of business. On the site are history of Viva members and offshoots, concert photos, and news from back in the day.

Back in the day my go to sites for music news was Martin Sinnocks website (long gone) and this one. I'm saving various pages to my computer, i was hoping some of you guys could do the same as it would be sad to have another great site disappear forever

funny how those sites were much more interesting and detailled than wikipedia and whatever these days,most fans of most groups know next to nothing about 90 per cent of their groups now

And just like that the website is gone. So sad. What we have left is inaccurate wiki pages and youtube comments

Thanks, ndeko. I have a few pages saved myself. I'll see what host options there are and get back to you. Maybe there's a way to integrate it on this site? Admin please advise.
