For those saying that Alternative Press has no integrity, going for the buck over long-term, or is just trying to "sell another issue," consider that AP is 27 years into their business. They've followed trends for all 27 of those years as a reputable source of information.
I don't understand why people continually bash a business that has influenced and informed so many of them. AP is a great magazine with great articles. The fact that they still exist in the current market is a testament to their worth. Why not sell a magazine with something topical right on the cover? When did that become a crime? Every single magazine I've EVER seen on a newsstand does the exact same thing. That's why you pick it up. You read the cover story and then you flip through the rest, sometimes finding something you've never seen or heard before.
I, for one, am very interested in this interview. A look at Jonny beyond the blog buzz and bullshit is a welcome read.
