1970s: “Will They Survive the 70s?” Amanda August 19, 2012 1970-1979, Magazines & comics 23 CommentsFavourited 1304 times Add to favourites 23 Responses EBL August 19, 2012 Wow. That magazine cover saw what was coming. It is interesting who did survive and who did not. Reply pajh August 19, 2012 With my incredible futuroscopic vision I can answer these hitherto-rhetorical questions thus: Yes, yes, no, yes (conspiracy theorists: no), who? Yes, no, just barely, no, yes Yes, yes, yes, yes, no (conspiracy theorists: yes) Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes The bottom row is the safest place to be. Unless you’re a conspiracy theorist. Reply Tom August 23, 2012 I don’t know if your qualified to comment if you don’t freaking know who Grace Slick is!!! Reply Tom August 23, 2012 *you’re james August 19, 2012 Been a long time since Grace Slick has gotten any space on a magazine cover. Reply George Slight August 19, 2012 Woah. Now that’s creepy. Reply EricW August 19, 2012 Their math was a little off with Johnny Cash, unless he was “approaching 30″ by the back door. Reply Cranios August 20, 2012 Well ten years is a long time, and these are people who to say the least, didn’t take good care of themselves? So it isn’t too surprising that several didn’t make it ten years. Reply Patrick August 20, 2012 Johnny Cash and Elvis were both well over 30, but yet the cover said “approaching 30″ what gives with that? Reply Mike F August 20, 2012 I guess a 30 year old rock star was still a rare thing back then ! Reply Mike G August 20, 2012 It’s weird that it shows Jimi as being 28, an age he never made it to. Reply Rick August 20, 2012 Wow, nice find. David Crosby says that he doesn’t remember the 70′s because he was high the whole time. It’s 2012 and he’s still around. Reply Alex October 7, 2012 The good ones always go first don’t they? Reply gladeye August 20, 2012 I worked at a collectibles store that had that issue. I was too ethical to steal it. Cursed morals! Reply Tacoamerica August 20, 2012 This art was obviously created on a computer. It is not a scan. The type and color is crisp, except for the bogus “DOORS NEW LP!” banner which was p-shopped in. Look at the green lines between the photos. Fake. Reply oshesa1 August 22, 2012 sorry but you’re wrong.. i have this magazine…saved it and hundreds of others from back then. though quite a few pictured here didn’t survive in the literal sense…at least the musicians pictured here had their music survive for decades to come afterwards. could hardly say that for many today… Reply Red Cardinal September 1, 2012 Why wouldn’t it have crisp colour and type? Good printing quality didn’t start in the last 10 years you know. Reply HardcorePrawn August 21, 2012 Grace Slick may have survived the 70s… but her credibility didn’t survive the 80s. Reply Rick James Bond August 21, 2012 Jeez, Hendrix only lived for a few months after this. Reply RCIAG August 27, 2012 Well, correct me if I’m wrong, all but Morrison, Joplin, Hendrix & Elvis made it through the 70s. Lennon didn’t make it outta the 80s, Harrison died in 2001, but other than that, the rest are all still kickin’. Reply Joe September 25, 2012 Morrison, Joplin, Hendrix & Elvis did NOT survive the 70′s – to have survived the 70′s, one would have to make it to New Year’s of 1980. Reply Drew Cain May 7, 2014 Joe, that’s exactly what RCIAG said. He clearly stated “all BUT Morrison, Joplin, Hendrix and Elvis”. Reply Birdy September 28, 2012 Ouch.
