Just launched today (Dec. 15, 2012), PURE GUITAR magazine is a labor of love by legendary guitar journalists, most of whom are former Guitar Player editors: Jas Obrecht, Tom Wheeler, Tom Mulhern, Jon Sievert, Joe Gore and photographer Max Crace.
I grew up reading their stuff-- the best! I'm also proud of my association with Jas Obrecht, from when he started Jas Obrecht Music Archive a few years ago. Jas is the KING of interviewers, and has been posting full, unedited versions of his classic GP interviews at the Archive site. In October, 2010 Jas graciously invited me to help out with a great Eric Johnson interview.
And as you can see, Eric Johnson graces cover #1 of Pure Guitar, with a fresh feature (perhaps the greatest EJ interview yet). Obrecht was the first guitar journalist to interview EJ, as well as Eddie Van Halen and a few others.
