This issue’s cover stars are Led Zeppelin, as we bring you the inside story of the making of Led Zeppelin II. We also look at the 50 Blues-Rock Tracks You Must Hear Before You Die. In the Classic Rock interview, Sammy Hagar looks back on an extraordinarily successful life in music and outside music, and reckons he still has “more fun than anybody on the planet”.
In other features… Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown are one of the hottest new rock’n’roll prospects, and the most in-demand support act among rock’s A-listers. Skunk Anansie hurtled into the spotlight 25 years ago, mixing rock guitars with punk attitude and one of their generation’s most compelling lead singers. As guitarist with the classic line-up of Genesis, Steve Hackett played on their greatest albums, yet off stage he was mostly in the shadows. Now he’s touring; playing some of those songs – and having the time of his life. Richard Jobson: punk singer, TV presenter, author, film director… What has he learned since starting out as the Skids frontman in the 70s? Rosalie Cunningham was the mastermind of lavish psychedelic revivalists Purson – with all the drugs, partying and trials that came with it. Now, with her solo debut, she’s just hungry for the music.
This month’s regular features include Live, Chris Robinson, Black Futures, Anathema, David Duchovny… All this and more – including the biggest and loudest rock reviews section on the planet – in issue 265 of Classic Rock, on sale July 23. Dig it? Get it. Got it? Groovy!
