This month it’s an all-star takeover, where stars chose the features they want to see in the magazine. And so we’ve got…

  • Jethro Tull: the story of their sprawling eighth album, Minstrel In The Gallery.
  • Magnum and Avantasia’s frontmen have a power-metal pow-wow and talk childhood idols, touring with Ozzy Osbourne, conceptual rock operas and living the dream.
  • Parliament-Funkadelic might not get the credit, but they’re as pivotal to rock as Pink Floyd or The Beatles.
  • Herman Rarebell meets Ginger Baker. The former Scorpions drummer and the drumming legend discuss early days, pain, playing and marijuana.
  • Danny Gatton is still a cult figure outside of the guitar world, but was the ‘player’s player’ who mastered every genre he touched.
  • Austin Gold burst on to our radar with a brilliant debut, after years of paying their dues. Now they’re ready for the next step.
  • George Harrison: Randy Bachman extols the genius of ‘the quiet Beatle’, George Harrison.
  • Perry Farrell: in the Classic Rock Interview, the founder of art-rock darlings Jane’s Addiction looks back at a difficult upbringing and living on the edge, and forward with his new project Kind Heaven.#
  • To celebrate ZZ Top’s 50 years in rock’n’roll, we asked some top guitarists to pick their top Top track.
  • Stray Cats: with a killer reunion album in the bag, Brian Setzer, Lee Rocker and Slim Jim Phantom talk old times and fresh beginnings.
  • Rainbow: the making of Down To Earth, 40 years on. Cue pranks, tantrums, line-up changes, bad vibes and really bad hair days
  • Steven Van Zandt leads his own band, is in the E Street Band, has a radio show, acts, writes TV scripts… Meet a rock’n’roll Action Man.
  • Jimmy Page waxes lyrical about his new (old) Dragon Telecaster.
  • Sometimes in making iconic rock’n’roll, the stories are just as important as the music. We present some of the best from storytelling master Lou Reed.

All this plus our regular features, including Paul Stanley, Procol Harum, the Rolling Stones, Zal Cleminson and more, not forgetting the biggest and loudest rock reviews section on the planet.
