Rare interviews and never-before-seen photos! These are among the treats in our coverage of 'Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs.' Fifty years ago, Eric Clapton went anonymous and made the most personal album of his career with Derek & the Dominos' 'Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs.' In this special issue, we tell the complete story behind the band and album — from Clapton's breakup with Blind Faith to his musical partnership with Bobby Whitlock that produced 'Layla''s timeless songs and their work in the studio with contributing guitarist Duane Allman. Based on a new interview with Whitlock and featuring insights from Clapton and 'Layla' producer Tom Dowd, this is the most complete telling of the story behind this classic rock milestone. Plus, we take a deep look at the guitars and amps behind the album and share rare, never-before-published photos of Derek & the Dominos. This issue also includes an in-depth interview with Joe Bonamassa about his new Danny Gatton tribute album, 'Easy to Buy, Hard to Sell,' featuring his group the Sleep Eazys, with the great John Jorgenson, and we speak with Tesla's Frank Hannon about his group's new acoustic album, 'Five Man London Jam.' We also talk to David Grissom and Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino about their respective new albums, and Robby Krieger weighs in with the guitar stories behind the Doors' biggest hits. Lessons include a guide to the musical artistry of Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo, and an in-depth look at the techniques behind the melodic soloing styles of David Gilmour, Brian May, Jerry Cantrell and Slash. In gear, we explore Fender's brand-new Parallel Universe Volume II models through an in-depth interview with Joey Brasler, the company's VP of product development. And we review the Asken Intercooler Droptop guitar, Positive Grid Spark Smart Amp and App, Fender American AcoustaSonic Stratocaster, Supro Conquistador, JHS Pedals Cheese Ball Distortion/Fuzz, One Control BJF-S66 and Line 6 POD Go. Finally, we close the issue with Joe Satriani telling us the story behind how he wrote "Satch Boogie."
