Rock Magazine CREEM To Publish Again

Long-defunct rock magazine Creem is making a comeback. Currently a web-only publication (www.creemmedia.com), Creem is expected be on store shelves in a print edition next spring, according to publisher Robert Matheu.

Creem began in Detroit in March 1969 and ran monthly until folding in November 1988. A revival was launched in the early 1990s, but the publication largely lay dormant until fall 2000, when Cameron Crowe's semi-autobiographical movie "Almost Famous" was released, according to Billboard.com.

Crowe wrote for Creem as a teenager under the editing of the late Lester Bangs, an eccentric, prolific writer who became synonymous with the publication.

The film renewed interest in Bangs and Creem, and Matheu decided to try to restore luster to the magazine's name. He contacted the owners of the publication rights and obtained permission to bring it back.
