CCR Zine, a website dedicated to disseminating articles by bands and artists of classical Christian rock, presents its first magazine in digital format to the entire Christian rock community.
Rated among the 100 best Christian music websites on the internet, "Classic Christian Rock" takes a step further by starting a new stage as a digital magazine that will be published every three months through its website and issuu.com.
In its first edition, CCR Zine presents on its cover the first but unknown Christian rock band "The Pilgrims", formed in 1961 in England, the oldest Christian rock band known. Through an extensive interview with guitarist Derrick Phillips, CCR Zine highlights for the first time in over 50 years to The Pilgrims and the entire Christian music scene in England, predecessor to the Jesus movement in the United States.
But this is not the only thing that stands out in the first edition of the magazine, some articles by well-known artists such as Whitecross, John Degroff, Bride, Holy Soldier or Crystavox also appear in this edition.
CCR Zine shares again an interview in 2014 with Dave Gryder of Heavens Force, the first Christian Thrash metal band formed in 1983, an interview that was read by many and that we wanted to share again in case someone did not read it.
The last pages of this issue are dedicated to some classic Christian rock artists who have had serious health problems recently, we give some details about their current situation, but the most important thing is the request to pray for God to heal them of all the diseases they are facing.
