Issue #1 (Vol. 1,.#1)
Blue Suede News #1 (officially
it's called Vol. One Number 1) from February 1986 in NEW condition. See
our humble beginnings! Shortly after Rick Nelson was tragically taken from
us, Marc Bristol decided to start Blue Suede News in tribute
to him and the music we all love. The original kernel of suggestion came
from Mike Bonin, then bassist and lead singer for the Moondawgs,

outfit in the late '70s and early '80s, who reunited for a recording..
