Does anyone read Mojo Magazine? I know they're printed in the UK but it's an excellent magazine, possibly better than Rolling Stone in my opinion.

Mojo blows away Rolling Stone.

The last issue I read has an interview with Beck & Page, together. Beck is a pretty funny cat.

I've been reading Mojo on & off since it's inception - it's a great magazine, with a nice mix of old & new and not generally afraid to lend big space to some pretty esoteric artists.

As for the UK thing, they've had US writers on their books for quite a while now - David Fricke of Rolling Stone fame is a regular contributor - and there is much more of a mid-Atlantic flavour now (which can be a bit hard to follow for us Brits, when their writers start to use words like "sophomore" and other American jargon! )

I don't understand why Mojo costs $9 here in the US...... and a rolling stones magazine can be bought for $2 or less if you subscribe. I was going to subsribe yearly for Mojo, but it's like $128 for 12 issues. So I'll just cart my lazy ass to borders and buy one monthly.

Mojo is a real good read. My favorite magazine lately has been Classic Rock. British magazine that has great articles about all sorts of great bands from the 60s-70s-and some 80s stuff. Cover to cover I enjoy the articles even when some of the bands weren't my favorites. The pictures are not just the same old stock photos that have been used thousands of times. I recommend it for the bathroom library although it is a little pricey.

Classic Rock deserves to just be called Rock. There isn't any other rock so Classic RocK and Rock are pretty much the same thing. "Modern Rock"=pop. If there is a real rock band (Mule of course), they can fall under rock along with the Classic Rock bands. Agreed?

I would agree with calling it "Rock". It would better describe it but I think they are trying to make people realize that there will be no articles on all the bands that fill the rest of the magazines. I think they would do an article on a band like the Mule but tie it in with history somehow.

If you're looking for a good mag to read, I'd like to recommend Hittin' the Note.

Relix is a real good magazine also. Some issues better than others. I guess it depends on who they are covering for me.

I think Relix is a great magazine also. I've just renewed my subscription! I agree that some issues are better than others, but they do a good job covering all the bases. Some magazines are expensive and cover limited material for hardcore enthusiasts. Relix almost always seems to have a special and they cover a wide range of material. Cover articles for this past year have been: Bob Marley, Lollapalooza (before the cancellation), Keller Williams, Dave Matthews and Emmylou Harris, The Flaming Lips, Phish, Widespread Panic, and Neil Young.

Another great magazine is Guitarist. It is also a British magazine which comes with an interactive CD. It is also an expensive magazine because of the CD. But it kicks all the US based Guitar magazines asses. Much better articles/interviews and the technical reviews and descriptions are much better. Plus they have a real in depth advice column which can run for pages. I have got lots of great tips there.

Have to agree that UK publications are "better" than the US magazines right now. It seems that the writers/editors are willing to tackle the more obscure/interesting topics.

I agree Finsky. They deal more with playing, gear and advice. Tons of neat little sidebars. The US guitar mags are like teen gossip magazines. Interview guitarists like Van Halen and talk about divorce. Who gives a **** ? Not me for sure.

Plus the ads in Guitarist kill me. Some stores will have six page ads and shows all the various guitars in pictures.

Well.... the guitar mags here have a serious fetish with heavy metal-ish players. The UK mags usually do include the bonus cd-and some of them are absolutely worthwhile. The domestic magazines also don't seem to enter OUT of the Van Halen/Slash realm. I could be misled, but that's the impression I get. Yes, they are great..... but.....

In the UK, they seem to give credit to some of the more obscure players....& deservedly so at that. Richard Thompson & the like. But then they turn around and gloat over the guys from Radiohead & Johnny Marr.

I've seen Mojo do pieces on John Lee Hooker, Billie Holliday, Marvin Gaye, Captain Beefheart.......hey, Mojo even did a good piece on the ABB a few years ago!

Blues Revue is another great magazine I highly recommend. You get cd samplers 3 times a year, too.
