JJ Kramer, the only child of CREEM Magazine's late founder, Barry Kramer, inherited CREEM at age four when his father died. CREEM, published from 1969 through 1989 in Detroit, was an early champion of various heavy metal, punk rock, new wave, and alternative bands, and left an indelible mark on the music industry.
JJ has made it his life's mission to revive CREEM and successfully did so in 2022. We talk to him about legacy, and what he's teaching his own kids about rock and roll!
