Creem: America's Only Rock 'n' Roll Magazine

Creem: America's Only Rock 'n' Roll Magazine ★★★½

I like the extra insight into the Detroit sound and some rock and punk acts, but man the dudes who ran this magazine sound like straight up toxic alcoholic assholes. In a way I'm kind of glad this sort of cock first drink fight and fuck rock'n'roll permateen attitude has gone the way of the dino. Walk down any street in Austin, and you'll find a '70s KISS worshipping cosplayer trying to out shithead Lester Bangs, though. The more things change, the more things stay the same I guess. Thanks Creem for at least showing young freaks that there's more to rock music than James Taylor, though!
