PM03 cover draftYes, Pinball Magazine No. 3 is finally nearing completion. Pinball Magazine No. 3 will feature Specials on Bally’s heydey in the late ’70s and KISS pinball machines in particular. There is a common factor as the first KISS pinball machine was made by Bally, in their heydeys.


PM03 will feature in-depth interviews with former pinball designer Jim Patla, former Bally Marketing & Licensing Director Tom Nieman, graphic artist Kevin O’Connor (responsible for the artwork on both Bally’s and Stern’s KISS pinball machines), pinball designer John Borg (Stern’s KISS) and Stern’s marketing and Licensing Director Jody Dankberg.


Other articles in PM03 include: Freddy’s Pinball Paradise, Project Pinball Charity, Pinball Creative (U.K.), Pinball Dreams (Germany), Pavlov Pinball (U.K.), Ed Robertson (leadsinger of Barenaked Ladies), Jersey Jack Pinball’s Jack Guarnieri, a whole section on French replacement printed circuit board manufacturers and more.


At the moment we’re still waiting for some articles to be revised, but Pinball Magazine No. 3 is likely to become available in September. Current page count is over 160! So we’re living up to our “more like a book” reputation once again.
