Jim Breeds… So. Farewell then.NME Print Edition. You made it to 66 years young.
You influenced my musical tastes. Now you have gone the way of the music.
To the great Online gig in the sky. J. Breeds Age 17½
Alan Esdaile… Not surprised, I did pick up the odd copy from HMV in recent years but a quick flip through and nothing much of interest. Unlike its hey day.
Peter Fairless… Nothing lasts forever..
Steve Sampson… Top tune that !
Martin Richter… such a shame – I had it delivered and took it to school to read – great reportage. aww – the Ray Lowry cartoons – T-zers – and the fact that a week later I found out that the atrocious support band to the dead kenneydy’s was (in fact) tenpole tudor! (they were fecking awful!)
Chris Meachen… I was always a muddly maker fan myself, but a shame nevertheless…
Martin Richter… used to get them both MM was more *muso* ?
Matt Thomas… Very sad and have vivid memories of fighting over the crossword in the Masons Music staffroom lol
Alan Esdaile… Nothing more satisfying, then getting an answer to a crossword clue, when no one else got it. Well maybe on a few occasions!
Tony Davis… I seem to remember that Nils Logren quite often appeared as an anagram. Shame though but its halcyon days are long gone.
Paul Crimin… I’m still getting over the loss of the Melody Maker…
Alan Pepper… My big brother never did forgive our Mum for throwing away his old NME’s from 1964. I enjoyed them in the mid Seventies when punk arrived and wished I had kept mine !! Sad day nevertheless …
Peter Fairless… Never mind the NME, I wish I’d kept my Disco 45s!
Martin Richter… took photos for them once
Clifford Rose… Yes, it was the only way of finding out why the Judge Dread singles were not played on the top 20 radio programme.
Jan Warren… Oh what a shame, I bought it every week in the 60s and 70s!
