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.
