I just finished a new blog post in my series "30 Years Ago in Guitar Player". It features a fascinating cover feature on Chuck Berry, articles with Ry Cooder, Eldon Shamblin, jazzer Rory Stuart and bassist Emory Gordy and more.

I bought that issue just for the Cooder/Vai insert.

Other than that, this series kind of depresses me - since these "30 year ago" posts are from about a decade after I stopped buying GP every month, and I didn't save any of the 4 years' or so worth that I had. :(

I actually still have some of those issues, but I'm in the "why didn't I take better care of them" dept.

But at the same time (and this can apply to so many aspects of mass media):

Who would have actually thought that magazines (and print media in general, and physical music media, and...) would have virtually begun to disappear from the face of the earth as a viable form of media.
