This month’s cover stars are Deep Purple. With their sprawling family tree, they shaped the sound and look of the golden age of classic rock more than any other. Across 25 pages, with contributions from band members past and present, we chart Purple’s reign. Including Ronnie Dio & Rainbow, David Coverdale & Whitesnake, Ian Gillan, The Butterfly Ball, Trapeze, Don Airey and more. Plus: PFM– bonkers Italian prog; Wishbone Ash – the band’s members recall the highs, and reflect on where it all went wrong; The Damned – there’s a lot more to the punk icons than you might think; Black Stone Cherry share the ingredients that spice up their southern-fried sounds; Michael Schenker – the vocalists tell their stories… All this and much more, plus the biggest rock reviews section on the planet.
