1969 and The Birth Of Heavy: in 300 shape-shifting days in 1969, Led Zeppelin released their first two albums, Gillan and Glover joined Deep Purple, UFO, Uriah Heep and Judas Priest formed, and Black Sabbath recorded their debut album. All of which changed the course of rock. Read the story from the people who were there. Ones To Watch In 2014: including Beastmilk, Cage The Gods, White Denim and more.
Boston: bandleader and controversial visionary Tom Scholz gives his most revealing interview ever. Peter Banks: some musicians’ contributions to the development of rock have largely been forgotten and their passing unmarked or, worse, unnoticed. Yes’s original guitarist is one of them. Jess Roden: a contemporary of Robert Plant and Steve Winwood, this virtually unknown blues/soul/rock singer is the Midlands’ best-kept secret. Dream Theater: As terminally uncool as they are devotedly admired, DT tell of the travails of taking prog into the modern world. And what about that Hear N’ Aid malarkey back in 1985: when the hard-rock community muscled in on the charity-single bandwagon. Cue a heavyweight cast, guitar battles and arguments over… who had the biggest hair. What?! Believe it.
