NME to close print edition after 66 years

https://www.theguardian.com/media/2018/ ... c-magazine?

From the age of 12 I bought whatever I could find in the local newsagents when I had money.One week Record Mirror then Melody Maker, Sounds, Smash Hits even and of course NME which I eventually bought religiously till about 1998/9 maybe a bit later. It was part of my lifeblood and informed, annoyed and inspired me, told me about gigs and new records and compiled peerless tapes, I Dreamt I Was Elvis, We Have Come For Your Children and the rest. I stopoed when I realised itvwas a habit but the end of it in print feels sad even though I haven't even bothered to pick up the free copies lately. I still have about 12 years worth in the garage, all my days gone by

Same here, on my way to school and later to work would pop in the newsagent at the bus station and buy one or more of the music papers. One by one they disappeared until NME was the only one left, became a small, free, magazine which lost out to the monthly magazines Mojo, Uncut, Q etc.

I read it avidly from around 14 years of age, i recall a fantastic cover shot of Lee Brilleaux of Dr Feelgood in a sweat stained white suit, one of my big regrets not seeing them live
I stopped buying it around 1998/99 also, had some great writers on its staff in the 1970's,when it became a freebie it was a mass of ads i felt.
