1999

March, 1999
This was the year Brandon Griggs got to meet Patrick Larsen for the first time in person. Both, Patrick and Brandon went to do the first interview with No Doubt about their then untitled album "Return Of Saturn". For Brandon was this the first time he got to meet No Doubt in person which was of course an amazing experience. This was also when Patrick and I first got to see just how appreciative the band were of our efforts with the website and magazine. The interview we conducted at the studio ended up being in issue 4 of the magazine. Also Brandon Griggs became Vice-President, this month.

Tom Dumont speak about the NDIFC on the official site :

May 6th, 1999 from Tom Dumont

2000

No Doubt started touring on their fourth album, Return of Saturn. For the NDIFC is our first big tour where we helped fans meeting No Doubt during the tour for the First time since the NDIFC started back in 1998.

April
The NDIFC does very well and a new NDIFC Staff job is created. It`s job for the keeping the website uptodate. This makes it easyer for President Patrick and Vice President Brandon to put the Tragic Kingdom magazine and helps Fans meeting the band.

The website delayed updating sometimes during the year. By October was a big delay because was NDIFC were following No Doubt in Japan and didn`t had time to update in the mainwhile.

By November, the server gaves some problems.

2001

An epic year for the NDIFC. In this year a lot happend.

April
The `New Site` does gets green light. To create. The start of that process, was good founded. But little problems showeup during creating it. Erik devotted all his time creating it. Due the couple of years, that site exists. It became a hugh site. So for Erik it took a lot of time, redesigning it.

July 9th
The `New Site` was launged. Far from finished. The site had a dynamic menu witch was not able to load on every computer. Witch was our goal. Fans had criticm about the site. The site was sometimes updated.

October
Erik left the NDIFC Staff. Due problems. President Patrick took the job back over from Erik and he placed the old site back.

The months after October, the NDIFC site does got daily updates.

No Doubt`s fifth album released called Rock Steady. The whole engine of meda stuff was started again and No Doubt started touring again. No Doubt did an tour with U2. Bono listened to Rock Steady before it`s released so that was a big deal for No Doubt.

2002

A really good year for the NDIFC. The NDIFC moved on.

This is how Vice-President Brandon Griggs look back to 2002 : 2002 was a great year. It was almost like a rebirth for No Doubt. They were able to embark on a big stadium tour for the first time since the Tragic Kingdom tour of 1997. No Doubt got to perform at the Superbowl pregame show in 2002, Gwen won a Grammy with Eve in 2002, so it was a busy year.

Along that NDIFC moved on, for No Doubt it was also an amazing year.

February
No Doubt`s first single from Rock Steady called Hey Baby, entered the United Kingdom chart at number #2.

March
The NDIFC got a new Webmaster called Mariette Hardeman (me). The website got within a short period a lot of updates and the site gets in a revolution. The site growed in size very fast. Many photos/mpg videos got placed in a short period.
