Hit Parader inspiration

I used to read Hit Parader back in the 80's a lot. It was a metal magazine, but everything was kind of fluff for the most part. I have a stack of these from the 80's and I was thinking that from time to time I may open one and write something that is inspired by one of their articles or interviews. I may call it "From the pages of Hit Parader" and do it maybe once a month. Some of their articles were alright and others make you think they should have added another letter onto the beginning of the name of the magazine.

Go for it Mark, I bet there's some articles on "Rock" legends Y&T and Loverboy.

I might even use ads from these magazines as inspiration.It's surprising to see some of the items that were for sale or some of the lines used on ads for albums.

From the way you talked (or wrote should I say) it sounds like that magazine isn't around anymore. I had no idea. Man, as soon as I got out of high school I got behind in what the hell is going on! I didn't know they cancelled Headbangers Ball on MTV until recently either! God! Am I getting old or what?

I used to buy Hit Parader, Cream and Rip. The best metal magazine by far was called Metal Forces. It was glossy magazine from England and it was the best. There is a magazine called Terrorizer out now that is kind of close to Metal Forces but not quite as good.

Oh, man. I used to buy Hit Parader religiously, along with Circus and Rip. There was no internet back in those days, so that was the best way to keep abreast on when then new Bulletboys was coming out...on cassette!
