    Dedicated Follower fanzine was born in 1985 as an Eleanor Rigby zine initially, then becoming a fully-fledged Modzine by issue three but it still had a heavy Eleanor slant to it. So with a special Best of Eleanor Rigby CD out this month and a 30th anniversary imminent for D.F we thought it a good idea to do an article on the magazine. The last paper issue came out at the end of 1988. An Internet version was launched online around 1994 and stopped around the year 2004.
