Is there a secret Rock mag?
7:12:23 PM
I have bunch of early Rock magazines and was wondering if I had the set, there are gaps in years and numbers which are bit odd. The ones between 3 and 10 weren't numbered (my guesses are in brackets), and despite it being yearly, there doesn't seem to be mags for 81 or 82:-

Date Number
1978 1
1979 2
1980 3
1983 (4)
1884 (5)
1985 (6)
1986 (7)
1987 (8)
1988 (9)
1989 10

Any ideas?

Your mentor, AFC, had a couple of older editions last time I was at his place. That was ages ago, but it's not like he'd chucked them out after mumblety years, so another mumblety years shouldn't make a difference. Might be worth giving him a call. My collection starts at '85, then '87, so I can't help you directly.

Didn't some of the early issues have advert sheets for back issues? If so, then they might delineate what years they came out in?

Jan -Jun 1989 was issue #10 and that was the first year it went 6 monthly (ie Jul-dec 1989 was issue #11), ... so work backwards from there... which makes issue #4 1983; so I assume the following, (as they were annual at that time?), ...
#3 = 1982
#2 = 1981
#1 = 1980

I quote from the editorial of Rock #10:

"Rock first appeared in 1978. I edited it for the then publisher, the VCC...I edited further (black-and-white) editions for the VCC in 1979 and 1980, again on a voluntary basis. In 1981, I founded Wild and was unable to also work on Rock. No issues appeared in that or the following year. Rock reappeared in 1983 with full-colour photographs. I edited and published it, on a commercial basis, for the VCC. Wild Publications subsequently purchased Rock in 1984 from the VCC. It has been published, in full colour, for each year since."

Thanks, I hadn't got around to reading that as I was reading of sexual misadventures in Screamer. All makes sense now.

When the VCC sold Rock to Chris Baxter we had a meeting with Chris where the details were thrashed out. Finally it was all signed, sealed and delivered, Then Keith Egerton said : "Now what about the back-issues?"
I thought Chris was going to have apoplexic attack for a moment.. In the end he accepted that he had forgotten to wrap them up in the deal and he paid a good price for the back-issues which was, in retrospect, one of the better deals he did as he sold them off for quite a lot more over time.
