Rock's Back Pages

A website for those who mourn the so-called golden age of music journalism, when Julie and Tony lorded it at the NME and rock stars were heroes rather than tabloid fodder, Rock's Back Pages is an archive of 12,000 pieces of music writing from the past six decades, searchable by author or artist. It's the pet project of Barney Hoskins, a music hack of the old school. The £25 annual subscription is a steal.
