It appears to be the Saxophone Journal with a different name but the same 40 year old style.

A bit like my saxophone style - at least 40 years old - my only similarity to Desmond and Mulligan is that I aim to be the quietest sax player in the band.

Nick's right - it is the same people associated with Saxophone Journal - Andrew Clark, Skip Spratt, etc...

I was a bit p!ssed off when the magazine stopped publishing - I was a subscriber for about 20 years...I ended up joining The Clarinet and Saxophone Society of Great Britain for my yearly dose of "horny" literature...:w00t:

My first look at an online magazine and I like the way the pages expand and reposition for reading

Nice

Saxophone today is good .... but I prefer a real paper magazine. I do my own magazine; ROCKSAX. 100% Rock & Roll Saxophone and 100 % non-profit. In fact I put in some money all the time.

So how do we subscribe to your mag or is it not available in English .......John

I write in Swedish. I began to write about saxphone, -records, -players when I ran a firm that imported saxes and records. Today I do all work myself except from design/layout and translations, that my son and my brother helps me with. It use to be four double printed A3 pages but sometimes I can just make three pages. I think the interest for Rocksax is decreasing. It's the same players that sign up for the Rocksax workshops. The "young" players are now around 40 years old. Where are the teenagers?

I prefer the paper copy as well - with Saxophone Today I just save it to a couple of different places and then print it off - I see your mate Andrew Clark is writing his rock 'n' roll column as well - good stuff...:thumb:

Yes, Andrew Clark continued his column. It's a good magazine.

"I think the interest for Rocksax is decreasing"

Interesting statement and I believe you are correct. Sad. But when the people hear some roof raising rock & roll sax they really do like it!

I do not hear it much from the younger players and the local bands can't find young brass players to fill the ranks of the cover bands.

Well at least it still keeps some us rockers real busy with the gigs :)
