In this issue’s cover feature, 50 years on we look at the making of Abbey Road. For the band it wasn’t a time of love, peace and understanding, but they came away with arguably the greatest of The Beatles’ albums.

In other features we talk to Biff Byford. He might have spent his life working as a coal miner. Instead he formed Saxon, one of Britain’s great heavy metal bands. Read his rags-to-riches story in the Classic Rock Interview. 

We collar Francis Rossi and Bob Young, once the ‘fifth member’ of Quo, to talk about early days, reunions, the ‘no Parfitt, no Quo’ debate and more.

After a change of scene, a change of personnel and a challenging couple of years, Crobot are back in business with their heaviest record yet. 

“He was an immortal badass,” Tom Petty’s daughter says of her late dad. To the rest of the world he was a gifted songwriter, singer and performer who led the greatest rock’n’roll band to come out of America.

We talk to Jesse Malin about his gorgeous new album, for which he teamed up with southern heroine Lucinda Williams.

All the world might no longer be a stage for Rush, but Geddy Lee is still attracting huge crowds. We join him on the road on his book-signing tour

Led Zeppelin, The Doors and Jeff Beck turned it down; The Who demanded payment up-front in cash… Fifty years on, read 50 things you didn’t know about Woodstock, the mother of all rock festivals.

In our regular features we have the story behind Stone Temple Pilots’ Interstate Love Song, and present a Buyer’s Guide to bluesman Walter Trout. We catch up with R&B legend Mitch Ryder, and suggest Six Things You Need To Know About Welsh noiseniks Henry’s Funeral Shoe… All this and much more, including the biggest and loudest rock reviews section on the planet.
