I got fed up with guitar world after a buying a few issues evry six months. seems like guitar player has more substance to it if you ask me.I usually buy Guitar World, but only like once every few months, this had some interesting stuff on Rush, Randy Rhoads, Ozzy + Zakk Wylde, and the White Stripes. But there's no doubt at all that I couldn't find it all on the net if I wanted to.
yeah really...Well considering these things are 80% advertising you would think they would be doing fine.
I did the same thing. I had taken out a subscription for a few years to help support my kids when they were selling subs through school but enough was enough. I like some of the British magazines better and Vintage Guitar magazine but the price of those is astronomical so I only treat myself occasionally.I am not sad to see them go down the tubes. I used to be a subscriber, but after my second issue, they stopped posting the mp3's to thier website and started charging the subscribers an additional $2.00 per issue for the accompanying CD with the MP3's (which were full of advertising also). When they pulled that stunt, they lost 100's of subscribers and they had to shut down thier online forum for a period because of the backlash.
