RS is an empty rag left over from a time that no longer exists, covering an industry that is alien to what it originally was. It is not at all surprising they would jump on such an opportunity in an effort to goose sales of their collection of adverts. Next month it will be back to photographs of the Beatles, articles on Eric Clapton's guitar collection and some reviews of a couple transient hip-hop acts in an effort to still appear relevant.
(I was a CREEM man. They at least had the dignity to implode in concert with their subject industry.)
