18. I remember them all! (Well, not Dig)...

Never had any subscriptions but they were easy to find in a big city when they had enough articles w bands I loved, or one majorly dedicated to one of several favorite bands.

Unlike maybe some of you (or not) I believe there is great music in every decade.

But then in '74/'75 I started hearing about CBGB's, all the punk bands through several great DJs, and The Village Voice. Besides Punk Magazine there was my favorite...

New York Rocker
of which I am proud to say I contributed 2 major illustrations (B&W drawings). One was printed very small, but it was my own photo of the artist that I drew from. The other 🥰 ran a half page!



I did a few more small little doodles. And 1 photo for sure.
So I was in and out of their office a bunch of times between '79 - '81 or so.

And I won the Rock Photo Contest for Rock Scene Mag back in ?77 or so.
With a great photo of The Who at the end of their Forest Hills Tennis Stdm 7/31/71 WN Tour concert. 👍

Some fabulous, great times!
