I don't understand the first line of this article, "this magazine reports on Music for Life". Is Music for Life a company, a label? Or just Spin's view on music?141.151.57.48 (talk) 16:12, 30 September 2008 (UTC)


This article needs help. And I would help it if I still liked Spin. Stan weller 02:48, 16 December 2005 (UTC)

Dr Drew had accused Spin's editors numerous times of denying the viral nature of AIDS on Loveline. Was there anything to this? Kevin --64.252.94.115 21:30, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Yes, there was. Even today, on Loveline, Dr. Drew again metnins how in the early 1980's that they gave erronoeus information on AIDS. --Doctor Foci Whom 06:53, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The magazine is called simply "Spin" not "Spin magazine." Magazine shouldn't be in lowercase anyway.--Esprit15d 13:43, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

Done. —Nightstallion (?) Seen this already? 09:37, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

Neutrality[edit]

I see no arguments regarding neutrality, so I've rmoved the tag. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 72.208.60.173 (talk) 10:57, 13 April 2007 (UTC).

This reads like it is a history of Spin magazine written by Spin magazine, and whats with the repeated references to what Rolling Stone was or was not doing? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.163.51.145 (talk) 20:12, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

I second that-- the neutrality really needs to be cleaned up here. --156.34.24.184 (talk) 19:52, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Re: AIDS article[edit]

there was an article on this in the mid 1990s wherein the Foo Fighters talked about their lack of a belief in the HIV/AIDS connection. Can anyone find a link? Girlofdestiny 04:35, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Can't help you on that as such, but Dave Grohl was pretty outspoken on the topic at the time. You shouldn't have trouble finding some other citation. - Jmabel | Talk 17:24, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Image[edit]

Spin music editor Charles Aaron (2008)

There's a decent image of Spin music editor Charles Aaron at Commons:Image:Charles Aaron 02.jpg. Some cleanup with GIMP or Photoshop might improve it further. If the article gets bigger, it might be a useful addition. - Jmabel | Talk 17:24, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

ISSN in infobox?[edit]

If you go to the link provided and once there click on "View all editions and formats", you will see ONLY 3 editions from 1985 listed.
My question is: with the changes in ownership does the ISSN still remain the same?—Iknow23 (talk) 03:01, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

RESOLVED. Thanks to another editor that reports at See subsection "Print edition of Spin" the ISSN 0886-3032 is on the PRINT edition of December 2009. Thus, the ISSN is the same.—Iknow23 (talk) 21:21, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Cleanup?[edit]

Guys, I know the magazine is now defunct (print wise, at least), but the article is a mess. Put a tag on it today so someone can at least format it properly into sections.Mistamystery (talk) 18:25, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
