Barry D. Kramer 1943-1981

Dave Marsh, Creem, April 1981

(On January 29 CREEM publisher and founder Barry Kramer died at 37, just as we were going to press. Our business is words, but they rather fail us when it comes to describing someone who was the vital force behind CREEM — who was indeed, Boy Howdy! himself. We immediately thought of Dave Marsh to attempt to write something, as he worked here as editor and knew Barry intimately at one of the most crucial points in CREEM's history. He speaks for all of us.)
