BACK DOOR MAN
1975 - 1978
Fred Patterson (a/k/a Phast Phreddie) put LA's South Bay on the fanzine map with a focus on "hard core rock 'n' roll" and its segue into punk rock. Contributors included Don Waller, D.D. Faye, Bob Myers, Thom Gardner, Don Underwood, "Metal" Mike Saunders, Richard Meltzer and Lester Bangs. Fifteen issues in all, and the first issue is particularly elusive!
