    The size reduction is in direct relation to the reduction of quality music articles the magazine produces these days.

    If it were, one would need an electron microscope to read it.

    I would have guessed it was due to the reduction of quality music these days.

    So true... I spent many an hour in high school trolling through the schools backlog of RS (yes my Cincinnati school had RS!!) of course it was not even glossy then.

    Back then it was beautiful
    The boys were sweet and musical
    The laser lights looked mystical
    Messed up stuff felt magical
    Girls didn't seem so difficult
    Boys didn't seem so typical
    It was warm and white and wonderful
    We were all invincible

    There's some interesting music and some interesting production out there.

    But great songs and songwriters seem to be hot on the trail of the dodo.

    I'm mid-thirties now, so I'm really starting to 'not get' so much of the music that is out today....but I wonder how much of some of our lament isn't the exact sort of thing people used to lament in the 70's, the 80's, the 90's....

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Very much. It's been going on for generations, and not just with music. It happens with movies, television, great athletes, great teams, etc. Whatever was the best or most popular when we were in our teens and twenties will forever remain the best in the judgment of many/most of us.

    I think Rolling Stone is in some trouble. I've been getting that magazine free for going on 3 years now and I barely read much of it other than music CD previews and the occasional story. Obviously, if they are giving that many free subscriptions away via CD's I've purchased online they must really be in need of more subscribers. It's tried to turn itself into a music/entertainment/politics magazine and it really doesn't work. I wish they would just stick to music and provide more in depth stories about musicians and music industry trends.

    Would Dr. Hook be as passionate today as they were in 1972?

    It's always been a music/politics magazine, becoming a entertainment lifestyle magazine detracts from the the backbone of the business and makes them have to take on more competition in more avenues.

    But politics and music is why most went to the magazine in the first place, not for stories on movie stars or current teenny bopper sensations.

    I worked as a cash register guy/delivery guy in a small town pharmacy in the mid 1970's. I loved RS back then, always reading it at work cover to cover.

    I ordered this issue of this magazine Saturday. If I like it I'll subscribe.

    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
