I was wondering who is on the cover of the latest issue of GPM since I never received my copy.

If you want to know who's on the cover, why not go to a bookstore. Then tend to carry them.

It was a sarcastic joke about not receiving my subscription copy. I know to call the number in the front of the mag. My tongue was planted firmly in my cheek!

blah

BTW - the Burl Ives comment was hilarious! Then again has he ever been on the cover? Hmmm... grin

There are more great players who have NOT been on the cover of GP than HAVE...
No disrespect to GP, it's just that there are so many excellent players, and so little time... oh, and a lot of them play in styles that are not massively popular.

As pointed out before, all one needs do is paste a photo (cartoon, maybe?) of fave artist, or even yourself on the mug of whoever's featured.

Maybe that could even be used as a DIY cover sometime, as a commentary on the never-ending controversy about who should be featured.
You know: generic image of guitarist surrounded by a gaggle of faces with dotted lines & instructions.
Feel free to use that idea!

TS, why be sarcastic to people when you dont even know that it was their problem in the first place? It could definitely be the postal service's fault.

I have talked to other people who have subscribed to GP and had delivery issues.
I've been buying the magazine for 35 years and never subscribed; I guess I just enjoy picking it up at the newsstand...probably pissed away a lot of money that way over the years....

BTW, here's a solution to all the cover photo issues:
