Published 29th May

This month it's Classic Rock's 250th anniversary issue, and we've celebrated by handing control to the stars we've been writing about all these years – from long-serving icons to newer favourites. We've got features chosen by the likes of Roger Daltrey (on the rock'n'roll pioneers of the '50s), Richie Sambora (the live glory of Bruce Springsteen), Lzzy Hale (Heart's seminal live album The Road Home), Def Leppard (the story of Queen's A Day At The Races), Pink Floyd (the immense career of Ginger Baker), Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson (overlooked blues legend J.B. Lenoir), Thunder's Luke Morley (Hendrix's first months in London), Joanne Shaw Taylor (the incredible story of Stevie Ray Vaughan's final album, In Step) among others.

Want more? We've got Myles Kennedy's Buyer's Guide to Led Zeppelin (he was almost 'in the band' at one point, so he knows what he's talking about...), The Cadillac Three's guide to the best new country rock acts, Shinedown's ultimate work-out playlist, and everything Quireboys frontman Spike learned from the Rolling Stones. We also caught up with Brian Eno (with introduction from Steven Wilson), discovered the story behind two David Bowie classics (as picked by Glenn Hughes and Roger Chapman) and flew over to Holland to meet upcoming rock hotshots DeWolff.

All that, plus the ultimate rock reviews section, essential live listings and a 15-track 'Best Of The Year' CD. Enjoy!
