It was announced this week that tomorrow's issue of the UK magazine NME will also be the last issue in print. The words RIP NME were trending on Twitter for some time, with people sharing their memories of the magazine and their favourite cover during the magazine's 66 year run. Ricky also joined in yesterday, with this tweet:

On today's Throwback Thursday we couldn't let the moment pass, of course, and so we chose another photograph from that issue. If you want to read the accompanying article, you can do so elsewhere on this website: WILDE: Sex kitten or reluctant starlet? Rest in peace, New Musical Express. You will be missed.
