Raw Magazine was founded in the summer of 1988 by Dante Bonutto, Malcolm Dome, Mark Putterford and Steve McTaggart& photographer Tony Mottram drafted in from Metal Hammer. They had come together on Metal Hammer magazine having split from Kerrang!, where Bonutto had been deputy-editor. The collective feeling there had been that Kerrang! was becoming too narrowly focused on Heavy Metal and that Metal Hammer would allow them more scope to explore other areas of Rock music. This quickly proved not to be the case and the idea for a new magazine was born, a title that would be a true Rock magazine, featuring Heavy Metal acts but not dominated by them. To that end they teamed up with marketing man Pete Winkleman and created Raw alongside Phil Alexander, Kirk Blows, Dave Dickson, Dave Ling, Sylvie Simmons, Maura Sutton and Paul Suter, most of whom had also worked on Kerrang!
