Music Street Journal Celebrates 25 Years
By: Music Street Journal
In the early days Music Street Journal was strictly a progressive rock zine, and at first it was all about album reviews only. Since those beginnings it has grown to cover other types of music, but each issue remains at least half prog rock to this day. In addition to album reviews, Music Street Journal does concert reviews and interviews along with book and video reviews - all music related.
Artists interviewed over the two-and-a-half decades include: Grand Funk Railroad, Jethro Tull, Hawkwind, King Crimson, Lamb of God, Yes, Yngwie Malmsteen, Uriah Heep, Blue Öyster Cult, Judas Priest, Motörhead, Queensrÿche, Jean-Luc Ponty, WASP, Nazareth and many more.
When it started, Music Street Journal was a one person operation, and that person was Gary Hill. Over the years an ever changing group of contributors joined. Some were just on board for an issue or two. Others have contributed to many issues. All brought their own styles and tastes to MSJ, lending a diverse and dynamic vibe to the publication.
Since 2018, each issue of Music Street Journal has been published simultaneously online and in print. The books are available in both paperback and hardcover editions. Each book also includes at least one Print Edition Exclusive article. Starting in 2020, MSJ started doing review bonus videos at the Gary Hill/Music Street Journal Youtube channel at youtube.com/@
The books, which are considered the definitive editions of Music Street Journal, are available in paperback and hardcover at lulu.com/spotlight/
