Rock Journalism

Founder, co-owner, Editor-in-Chief and, for a little spell, publisher of Aloha magazine. Aloha was a monthly music glossy published in Holland and Belgium from December 1999 to end 2004. Named after a counter culture magazine from the late sixties / early seventies, the new Aloha catered to grown-up rock fans, who like to revisit the music from their youth: from Elvis, to Beatles and Stones and Aretha, via Zeppelin, The Who and Eagles to U2, Nirvana and Alanis.

After TJ Lammers left in October 2004 the magazine changed its name to Aloha People & Music, which merged with Oor magazine in 2005 – and consequently disappeared.

Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Revolver magazine. Revolver was a monthly music glossy published in Holland from December 2005 to April 2010, after which the magazine changed its name to Revolver’s Lust For Life. Named after the best album by The Beatles, Revolver catered to the same people that read Aloha magazine. TJ Lammers quit as Editor-in-Chief in July 2009, to concentrate on writing Tony Iommi’s autobiography Iron Man (see the Book Stuff page), but he is still involved with Lust For Life writing columns, reviewing CD’s and DVD’s and writing feature length articles.
