Classic Rock’s on January 14, 2017Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
Mentioned this over Christmas, the fact that Team Rock’s stable of magazines had gone into administration. Thankfully Future Publishing have bought the site, the various magazines and events. Orange Goblin held a fundraising drive for staff who had lost their jobs raising £70k. Not clear what happens to the 70 to 80 staff;
Only a handful of staff have been guaranteed jobs in the transition of the TeamRock business, handled by administrators FRP Advisory, although ongoing negotiations could allow more move to Future.
The call to help the affected staff attracted support from rock fans from all over the world, with donations from musicians such as Avenged Sevenfold, Black Stone Cherry, Asking Alexandra and Tesseract, while musician Frank Turner set up an auction to raise money for affected staff.
