Win ‘Creem: America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine’ Doc on DVD!

Greenwich Entertainment and Kino Lorber are proud to announce the exclusive early DVD release of Creem: America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine as part of Record Store Day’s third RSD Drops date, October 24.

Featuring rock music icons Alice Cooper, Kirk Hammett, Wayne Kramer, Gene Simmons, Michael Stipe, Chad Smith, Paul Stanley, Joan Jett, and influential rock critic Lester Bangs, Creem: America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine has been a hit with critics and was an Official Selection at the 2019 SXSW film festival. The DVD release also includes additional interviews and trailers.

Capturing the messy upheaval of the ’70s just as rock was re-inventing itself, Creem: America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine explores the publication’s humble beginnings in post-riot Detroit, follows its upward trajectory from underground paper to national powerhouse, then bears witness to its imminent demise following the tragic and untimely deaths of its visionary publisher, Barry Kramer, and its most famous alum and genius clown prince, Lester Bangs, a year later. Fifty years after publishing its first issue, “America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine” remains a seditious spirit in music and culture.

Since its launch in 2007, Record Store Day has celebrated the unique culture of the nearly 1400 independently-owned stores around the US, and brings together the people — store owners, staff, customers and artists alike — who contribute to a shared love for the record stores and the music.

And we’re giving away five copies!

To enter, send an email with the subject header “CREEM” to geekcontest @ gmail dot com and answer the following question:
