The Creem Wars continue

The legacy of one of the finest rock mags ever is still being battled out, literally and figuratively. This New York Observer article has news of dust-up between two factions, including publication of a recent anthology of articles. As a former writer there said, since it's debatable at best if the rights have been cleared with the individual writers (they probably haven't actually), that could be grounds for suit in addition to the other court activity that's swirling around the magazine. Also note comments from Connie Kramer (widow of founder Barry Kramer) and Dave Marsh at the bottom of the article.
