The Story Of CREEM Magazine — the long-awaited story of arguably rock's most important and cutting edge music magazine — CREEM — has been told by director Scott Crawford along with producer J.J. Kramer — the son of late CREEM founder, Barry Kramer. The film, which was produced with the full cooperation of the late-publisher's estate, tells the brutal early history of the Detroit magazine as it came into its own in the late-1960's and early-'70s, featuring such brilliant, era-defining rock writers as Lester Bangs, Robert Christgau, Greil Marcus, Susan Whitall, Ben Edmonds, Jaan Uhelszki, Patti Smith, Cameron Crowe, Richard Meltzer, and Dave Marsh — who back in 1971 was the first to coin the term “punk rock.” Boy Howdy! features testimony by such icons as Alice Cooper, Bob Seger, Paul Stanley, Ted Nugent, Michael Stipe, Iggy Pop, MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer, Mountain's Leslie West, Marshall Crenshaw, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, the Dictators' Andy Shernoff and “Handsome Dick” Manitoba, the Runaways' Cherie Currie, and the Sex Pistols' John Lyndon, among others. This year's SXSW runs in Austin from March 8th to March 17th.
