    Default Guitar magazines

    Both editors of Guitar World & Guitar Player, were fired simultaneously, with
    seemingly no warning.

    Michael Molenda & Jeff Kitts both posted their final editoral pages, both sounding
    a bit shocked & very sad, but putting on a brave face.

    I guess New Bay purchased both magazines & axed the top guys.

    Curious to see what changes are in store, since i actively read both.

    Print media is sliding into the abyss, hanging on on by bitten off finger nails.

    I worked in newspaper advertising my entire career until I just got out of it recently. Print media is an almost dead industry. Very sad.

    Yeah, it is sad, because i still love print.

    It was depressing to see Guitar Player shrink in dimensions, with almost newspaper for pages.

    Rolling Stone is unrecognizable this month.

    It looks like a huge, glossy fashion mag.
    I guess they are now monthly, instead of bi monthly and the cost went up to 9.99.

    Brett, I've been trying to contact you to see if you wanted to post this one (GP, April '80), if I mail it to you.
    I don't know how copyright laws work, but I'm willing to mail the photo copy of this entire interview to you, to de-ad or whatever, and post for all to see.


    Why behave in public...if you're livin' on a playground !

    I was into these when I was a kid. Stuck with them thru the late 90's, but since then I hardly read them.
    I've actually been wanting to get a subscription going again.

    I love print too. Digital just aint the same. Plus, I like getting cool stuff in the mail.
