'Rock's Backpages': a Treasure Trove of Rock History

I know it is a stretch, my last musical post was on Henri Salvador.
Based in the UK, Rock's Backpages (their tag line is 'The ultimate library of rock music writing and journalism') offers music fans a treasure trove of articles, music reviews and audio clips from US publications (Rolling Stone, Creem...) British ones (NME, Melody Maker...) and even Australian sources if you ever took interest in bands such as The Saints, Go-Betweens or The Church.
You have to subscribe either for 6 months ($30) or a year ($50) in order to explore the riches.
The site is clutter free and easy to navigate.
The best thing about it is it will save you the trouble of keeping all these old magazines.

They offer tickets for Sports Events, Concerts and Theater Shows. Also covered is the Speaking Tour and Convention area which I recently mentioned...
