Star Magazine, February - June 1973

Item #4140

STAR Magazine was a monthly periodical founded in February 1973 that ran for only five issues before ceasing publication. The magazine was centered on the Sunset Strip groupie scene, including features on rock stars, romantic advice, tests, fiction, and comics. Star focused on certain famous groupies such as Sable Starr, Shray Mecham, Lori Lightning, and Queenie Glam. This collection features a full run of the extremely limited issue, cult-status publication, providing a rare look at a now somewhat taboo 1970’s teen subculture. Lasting for just five issues, it was consumed by controversy due to its glamorization of problematic sexual relationships between rock stars and teen girls. A sixth issue had been planned but the controversy kept it from ever getting published. Star magazine also contributed an article to Creem magazine, which is included in this set.
