In the mid to late 70s I used to Creem magazine for pics and articles on KISS. As punk rock was starting out I would always see pics of Patti Smith and Debbie Harrie and bands like the Sex Pistols and the Dead Boys and they were scary as well as extremely interesting. I bought the Ramones 1st album and the Sex Pistols album and had my life changed forever. Almost immediately lost interest in KISS and devoted my life to punk rock. I was aware of bands like The NY Dolls because my friends older sister was into them. So I was on the right track at a very young age but those articles and pics about punk in Creem made all the difference. Later on a friend of mine actually interviewed Lester Bangs.
