CREEM the Movie Comes Out Virtually this Friday

In 1969 CREEM landed on newsstands around the US and proclaimed themselves "America's Rock and Roll Magazine". Two years later, they brought the legendary Lester Bangs on board and shook up the world of rock and roll with everything that they published in their pages. This includes coining the term punk rock and helping catapult artists like David Bowie, Blondie, Iggy Pop, and Lou Reed into the stratosphere. But, despite all its infamy, the complete story of Barry Kramer's magazine was never really told. Much of what we know about the writing room comes from the myths and legends that have been passed down over the last few decades. Thankfully two very important people teamed to do something about that. 

Barry Kramer's son JJ Kramer and CREEM co-founder and one of the first female rock journalists Jaan Uhelszki spent the last few years diving into the stories and compiling a picture that pays tribute to what some say was the rowdiest newsrooms in journalistic history. CREEM the movie will be released virtually at 3:00 a.m. EDT on August 7th. The film will include appearances by Alice Cooper, Joan Jett, Michael Stipe, Cameron Crowe, Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Kirk Hammett, Wayne Kramer, and Chad Smith.  It's $9.99 to buy one ticket to the show and once the film is released you will have 14 days to start watching the film and three days to watch it once you have started it. 

It has been fifty years since its all started. It's about time that we all get the full story of the magic that started in the Motor City and changed rock and roll forever.
