"The staff of CREEM didn't just come to the shows to write about them," Alice Cooper once said, "They came to rock."
Indeed they did, whether we're talking the drink-and-drug-fueled rants of Lester Bangs or the early Almost Famous-inspiring writing of film director Cameron Crowe. Co-edited by Robert Matheu (a photographer and writer for Rolling Stone, Playboy, The New York Times and more) and Brian J. Bowe (the first editor of CREEM's posthumous online edition), CREEM: America's Only Rock 'N' Roll Magazine (Collins, $29.95) includes 272 pages of classic rock criticism and photography from 1969-1988, including Alice Cooper's infamous "Alcohol Cookbook" and insightful profiles of Kiss, The Ramones, Rod Stewart and more. Interested? Good, because it's available now.
