WATCH: Teaser Trailer for New 'Creem' Magazine Doc

Rock and roll is lousy with incredible tales, and among some of its greatest is the story of Creem magazine. 

Founded by Barry Kramer in Detroit in 1969, Creem was the beautifully rebellious middle finger to the other music magazines of the time, as evident in the teaser trailer for the documentary Boy Howdy! The Story Of Creem: America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine, which is being produced by Kramer’s son, J.J.

Here’s the thing:  This film is still in dire need of funding.

A Kickstarter has been created by Scott Crawford, the film’s director, in an effort to raise the $100,000 needed to complete the film, which will cover all the necessary licensing fees, post-production costs and legal needs in order to make this film a reality.  This money needs to be raised by August 5th.  On the Kickstarter page, Crawford writes, “…it’s an ALL OR NOTHING proposition.  If we don’t hit our goal, we can’t make this film!  Every last dollar counts!”

So, what are you waiting for?!  Watch the trailer below, and head over to for more information, including all of the rewards that come with supporting the film.
