    In the 70's we didn't get much here because of the boycott. What I remember enjoying quite regularly -

    I actually bought edition No.2 with a picture of Ritchie Blackmore on the front cover back in 1981 but later on KERRANG went Nu Metal which lost me.

    SOUNDS was great for NWOBHM in the early 1980s.

    RECORD COLLECTOR was ok and the earlier CLASSIC ROCK magazines were ok as well in the late 1990s & early 2000s.
