Creem, the rock n’ roll magazine, makes its big debut with digitally archived issues from 1969 to 1989 available now. They will offer a quarterly print magazine starting this fall with subscription listings starting now.
Various rock n’ roll stars commented on the magazine’s comeback and returned comments on its original issues. Michael Stripe notes: “Most people want to fit in somewhere. I wasn’t going to find him in my high school. I found it in CREEM Magazine.
Creem was founded in Detroit in 1969, operating underground before going nationwide. Thurston Moore notes, “Having a certain sense of humor in rock ‘n’ roll culture – CREEM nailed it in a way no one else has. This enlightened the sensibilities of many people.
The magazine has over 224 issues and 69,000 photos, articles and reviews covering new artists, trending music and various updates within the rock community. Even the iconic Kurt Cobain loved the magazine, noting, “I’m just going to retire to Mexico or Yugoslavia with a few hundred bucks, grow some potatoes, and learn rock history through old Creem issues. .”
Original work by the writing team of Lester Bangs, Cameron Crowe, Patti Smith, Greil Marcus, Lisa Robinson, Susan Whitall, Dave Marsh, Robert Christgau and Jaan Uhelszki.
