RIP- Smash Hits
Smash Hits Magazine will publish its last edition on the 13th of February.
Here is a funny and insightful farewell from the Guardian: Smash Hits truly understood what pop music was about. Its tone was never fawning or respectful, but impudent, wry and occasionally merciless. Any kind of pomposity was held up to endless ridicule.
Mostly, I will miss the Smash Hits Poll Winner's Concert, which was aired on C4 every December. I don't know what I will decorate my Christmas Tree to this year.
