This issue’s cover feature is 2019: The Ultimate Review. We look at the year’s standout new releases and best reissues, and remember those who have sadly left us during the past 12 months. We also talk to some of the artists for whom 2019 (and the past decade) has been one to remember, including…

The Wildhearts, who released one of the year’s best albums. Renaissance men indeed. Jeff Lynne looks back at a long and hugely successful career, Rival Sons talk about the past decade, fashion and latest album Feral Roots. Joe Elliott looks back at on a busy year, including Def Leppard’s induction into the Hall Of Fame induction and their Las Vegas residency. Ronnie Wood opens up about beating cancer, the Rolling Stones and his Chuck Berry tribute. Steven Wilson reflects on the genius of Bowie and Zappa, married life and why it’s good to talk bollocks, while Tedeschi Trucks Band’s Susan Tedeschi takes on the apocalypse. We also talk to The Struts frontman Luke Spiller, Glenn Hughes, Steve Hackett, Beth Hart, Toby Jepson and more. And of course we’ve got the biggest, loudest rock reviews section on the planet.
