I have a lot of fanzines in my archive … and here´s a very rare one … The first issue of the Rory Gallagher fanzine “Fresh Evidence”.
It was the “only official Rory Gallagher fanzine in the world”, as the publisher Noel Lackey wrote.
A fanzine (blend of fan and magazine or -zine) is a non-professional and non-official publication produced by enthusiasts of a particular cultural phenomenon (such as a literary or musical genre) for the pleasure of others who share their interest. (by wikipedia)
And this is the very first issue of “Fresh Evidence” (the titel comes from a Rory Gallagher album from 1990 (his eleventh and last studio album).
As many fanzines, the print quality of this fanzine is more or less not so good … but that was not important in these days.
Much more important was, that Noel Lackey had contact with Rory Gallagher and his brother Donal and so he was able to present his “Question And Answers” column.
A real nice addition for every serious Rory Gallagher collection … a fanzine from a fan for the fans …
