New subscriptions will begin with the Winter 2011/2012 issue, Backstreets #90
Boss coverage from A to Z: that's Appel to Zimny, this issue featuring extensive Backstreets interviews with each.
For our first talk with Mike Appel in 20 years, we asked Born to Run photographer Eric Meola to sit down with Bruce's former manager for a chat. In a wide-ranging discussion of his time with Bruce from the early '70s to their 2009 reunion in Buffalo, Appel describes shows like Sing Sing Prison and the Anne Murray blowout at Central Park along the way.

Backstreets has a loyal readership nationwide (all 50 states) and internationally (more than 40 countries). Most readers are subscribers, but the magazine also has broad distribution by Ingram and IPD, from large book and record chains to mom and pop record stores.
While Backstreets magazine itself focuses on Bruce Springsteen, each quarterly issue reaches more than 15,000 hardcore music fans of all stripes (we currently print 15,500 copies). Backstreets readers tend to be well-educated, hardcore music-lovers in general: avid collectors, regular concert-goers, and musicians. Most Backstreets readers read the magazine the day it arrives and save their issues for future reference.
Backstreets is saddle-stitched and printed web offset with covers on 70 lb. gloss enamel and interior pages on 50 lb. gloss enamel.
We offer quarter-page, half-page, and full-page ads, all in four-color. Rates start at $400 for a quarter-page ad (with multiple placement discounts available).
