Here we have it, the 31st print edition of Black Magazine entitled “With or Without You”. And what an issue it is. In true Black Magazine style, we proudly print five ROCK and ROLL covers from New Zealand, Australia, Paris and Madrid. The title of this issue resonates with us deeply as the collective Black whanau. When Grant and myself started Black Magazine in 2007 we did so with each other and chose our loyal teams to join us. To be with us, and they are still with us to this day. We have collected a few Black babies along the way but we are still forever inspired and without their wonderful talent we are nothing. We celebrate the late and great Grant Fell’s writing and his vision in this 2012 Issue 18 foreword, which resonates with us in publishing today.
