1981-10-17 VARA gids Bodine1981-10-17 VARA Magazine (NL)17 October 2011: The editorial about the poll results in VARA's magazine suggests that the outcome was rigged by a coup of Bodine fanclub (English version here)! However, MaxPower, initiater of the fanclub, denies this allegation. "At the time the poll took place, the fan club did not even exist", he points out subtly, "Our first fan mag was only released a month later".
