Your Kind Of Music Monthly

The only monthly magazine dedicated to the Music and Stars of Rock‘n’Roll, R&B, Blues, and other music from the 50s, 60s, & 70s.

THE BEAT: it’s only a rock and roll monthly magazine to you and me, but to many artists, promoters and fans all over the world, it is the life-blood of live shows in venues large and small.

>In 2012 and 2013, many of the original teenage heart-throbs of the 60s celebrate 50 years of rock and roll. Some achieved fame and fortune, some had fame and fortune thrust upon them, and others – well, fame and fortune eluded some of them in the UK, the US and other parts of the world which was made richer by the sounds of the 60s.

THE BEAT is a monthly full-colour magazine avoiding much of the usual turgid prose and tedious layouts of hard-sell advertising. The pages contain news, views, features, reviews, competitions, special offers and best of all – a direct line between fans and artists, bands, groups and the big family of rock and rollers still doing their thing today.

Time has rushed by, but age and performing has not wearied them: from the biggest names to the not-so-big but talented artists and musicians, THE BEAT keeps audiences up-to-date with latest shows, travels, gossip and sadly notes the obituaries of those who have rock and rolled off this mortal coil. The music lives on, and The Beat is the only monthly magazine which gets close to the players and the fans regularly, drawing them together.
