I wasn't around when Creem was a popular mag, but I thought that they mostly favored stuff like the Stooges, the MC5 and other bands that can't really play their instruments but make up for it by having a lot of "energy" and "attitude" (yawn..)

That is the first time I ever heard of Kiss way back in 73 or 74 i think.  all I could think of was what a bunch of drag queens.<br><br>Man would I love to have a six pack of Boy Howdy Beer!  That could really be worth some $$$$$

haha!   Yea I was about 11 the first time I saw a picture of them and my brothers had already got me smoking weed by that time.  In fact I wasn't into a lot of mainstream stuff even at that early age!

I used to love Creem, especially the picture captions. And as for Kiss, Creem were the first ones to show a photo of them without the makeup long before they officially took it off.<br><br>

Yup, Creem had the bestest captions around....and the best letters section. I had a letter published in Creem, but it was after the 70's, when I personally think Creem was at it's peak. However, I still bragged about it ;D But having the great and powerful Lester Bangs doing many many articles just made Creem that much better. One of the few rock journalist who did'nt sit on a cosmic utensil.

Thanks for the link---Frank was the subject of another Creem's Profiles back in July '77, which I liked better than the '86 one. Unfortunately, if you check the archives, you can't click on it to see it. I hope I did'nt toss that one. :oops:

That's funny stuff right there. :lol:

That was always one of Creem's greatest appeals to me when I was a teenager: its humour. The writing in Rolling Stone was pretty stuffy in comparison to "America's ONLY Rock 'n' roll Magazine".
It was also one of the very few rock rags that consistently covered the more obscure, underground music that was floating around. Without Creem it probably would have been years and years later before I'd heard of The Stooges.

They started doing the StarsCars around the time I stopped reading Creem - a little before, but around that time.

I loved the CreemDreems.
My favorite was the one with Debbie Harry and Iggy Pop. Iggy was looking down at Debbie and he had his "mitt on her tit". I laughed my ass off at the comments they made up for that one.

And then there's this historic gem:

I was looking through some boxes to clear off the patio (attention "Hoarders"!), and found a mouse had been in one of them by the chewed-up mags----some of them early Creem's--including the 1974 10th anniversary of The Mothers. I had to chuck it, and many other 70's Creem mags with Frank in them. Rats! We found the rodent in question in one of the boxes--ALIVE! Squeaky ran off,and I found out I could jump pretty damn high if I needed to---and scream Bloody Murder, too! Pretty funny, actually, just not at the time. Miss those periodicals already.......
