BWR Interview: Brenda (Hornberg) Watkins -The Birth & Demise of the NMW Fanzine!
Brenda was in the early 90's, involved with Amy DeFalco and Rob Rodriguez in helping with the conception, implementation and promotion of a new Badfinger fanzine soon to be titled "No Matter What - The Official Badfinger Fanzine" - a song title name that was suggested by Brenda.
In 2003, Brenda wrote an article titled; "From Little Acorns" for the Keith James' "Better Days - Photographs and Memories" - booklet #2. In that article, she talks about how she first met Amy and Rob at a Badfinger concert in a Chicago club in mid-June of 1990. Then how quickly all the pieces fell into place for getting the Preview/Discography issue ready for the Beatlefest show held in Chicago, on August 11 and 12th. This included a meeting with Joey where he gave his blessing and this advice: "do it right!"
