Creem Rises Again: 10 Classic Pieces Written by Cameron Crowe, Patti Smith, Lester Bangs and Others for the Irreverent Rock Mag

Creem magazine started publishing as a regional monthly in Detroit in 1969, but didn’t go national until 1971, with a firmly anti-establishment bias that took aim at the likes of Jann Wenner’s Rolling Stone and Paul Williams’ Crawdaddy for eminence in the heady early days of rock criticism. Among its earliest writers were certified pioneers like Dave Marsh, the dark rumblings of the late Lester Bangs and Nick Tosches, and rock-crit icons Greil Marcus, Robert Christgau, Cameron Crowe, John Mendelsohn, Lisa Robinson, Lenny Kaye, Wayne Robins, Ben Edmonds and Sylvie Simmons. They all mingled with the likes of Patti Smith, who memorably reviewed Todd Rundgren’s “A Wizard, A True Star” (one of those listed below) years before inviting him to become her producer.

How Billy Wilder Influenced Cameron Crowe

Although Billy Wilder is an absolute legend of the screen, no filmmaker seemed to revere him more than Cameron Crowe. From the very first line of Crowe’s book on Wilder, the writer praises him with the highest superlative he might bestow as he introduces his mentor as “the greatest living writer-director.” Denying that Wilder was a huge influence on Crowe is to deny that beaches spring from the ocean. The one-liner filled scripts Crowe became known for couldn’t exist without the brilliant dialogue of Wilder’s comedies. Yet these two filmmakers, the elder considered a harsh pessimist while the younger a nearly saccharine optimist, seem like they couldn’t be more opposite. Through Crowe’s well documented praise for the director, it’s clear that he ripped pages straight out of Wilder’s handbook and pasted them to the screen; let’s read a few of them back now.
