Creem Magazine Coming Back From The Dead
Founded in 1969, Creem gained notoriety in the '70s as a primary outlet for legendary rock critic Lester Bangs. As a teenager, film director Cameron Crowe also wrote for the magazine. The publication shut down its print operations in 1988, and established an online presence in 2001.
"We just feel the timing is [right]," said Jason Turner, board chairman of Creem Enterprises Inc. "There's so much amazing music happening today, but there's no filter, no curation happening. We think Creem is a great brand to do this under." more on this story
