Too Much Effing Perspective: Creem CEO John Martin – America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine

Every performer who’s ever been on the road has at least one bizarro story that could have been pulled straight from the iconic music mockumentary, This Is Spinal Tap. Co-hosts Allen Keller and Alex Hofmann delve deep into their guests’ harrowing, humbling, and hilarious Spinal Tap Moments uncovering universal truths along the way.

John Martin stops the presses to give us the scoop on how the newly rebooted CREEM magazine walks that fine line between stupid and clever; the unusual compensation that legendary cartoonist R. Crumb received to design the magazine’s iconic mascot, Boy Howdy; and why CREEM’s party at the South By Southwest music festival nearly blew-up in a haze of Mexican Coke.
