AB ( with editions)- Magazine Research

Classic Rock

A British magazine, that was created generally focusing on the music generation between the 60s - 90s. The first issue was in 1998 and is still going in a paper-back and online version. The Doors are still fairly referenced in the magazine after a quick 

This would be a good choice as I think we would find a good fanbase from the readers of the magazine.
Rolling Stone

An American Magazine that focuses on Music, Politics & Popular Culture. It's first issue was in 1967 and is released every two weeks. This is also a potential choice, although with the mixture of new music,  and other subjects of interest. I don't think it will have a big as impact than it would have in Classic Rock. But due to the huge circulation, this may be different.

A British music Magazine featuring older and newer generations of music. Its first issue was in 1993.
Advertisement Idea
The idea would be to have two seperate, single pages. One near the beginning of the magazine, which uses an image of the band and the title of the band (using their original font). This could also be a freebie poster for the user as well. A working progress features below.

Later within the magazine would be a second advertisement. This time it would be revealing the release of the digipak.Working progress features below. (Excuse the tour dates)

We have decided to produce our magazine advert for a quarter of a page, as this is a popular band but has also lost some of the interest that it previously had. From looking at existing magazine adverts we also want to include the digipak at the bottom of our magazine advert, so it clearly shows what we are advertising.

Other information we plan to include on our magazine advert is release date, the doors webite, and information on the bonus DVD
