At the tail end of the sixties Pete Frame launched the greatly respected U.K. Zigzag magazine which featured acts including Bob Dylan, Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin, Traffic, Grateful Dead, The Byrds, The Who, Pink Floyd, etc. Starting publication as a Rock, Blues and Folk music magazine, it slowly changed with the popular music scene through the 1970's with Prog and Folk Rock and then moved on to Punk Rock, New Wave & Goth Rock in the late 70's & early 1980's. Zigzag magazine regularly featured excellent interviews, well researched articles, record reviews and early issues featured "rock family trees".
