Fantastic! Love the "Ask Doc Rock"...

"Is it true that Bass notes in rock & roll penetrate the human spinal chord causing vibrations that cause boys to go mental and turn girls into nymphos?"

God I hope so.

I think that should read "Princess Lou Reed". Lou Reed didn't become queen until the late 80s.

This is really great, makes me feel old, but mostly really nostalgic. Nostalgia is pretty new to me, and sort of freaks me out.

From the good folks who brought us the Star Magazine scans! Another fantastic slice through a lost pop subculture. Just wish the interface wasn't so clunky...
