100 Guitar Heroes (Individually priced at £9.99)
The guitar has played a fundamental role in the history of blues, jazz, rock and popular music over the past century, with many incredible musicians making their own, unique contributions to this diverse repertoire.
100 Guitar Heroes features interviews with and profiles of many of the key guitar players across multiple genres, delving into their influences and motivations and players, the guitars and gear they used, how they recorded some of their most famous music and much more besides.
Many of the interviews and profiles have been taken from the archives of Guitarist, Total Guitar & Guitar Techniques magazines from the past 25 years. This hand-picked selection also features profiles that have been commissioned exclusively for our 100 Guitar Heroes collection. In all cases, classic albums are listed for readers who want to investigate any artist’s music further – there’s something here to spark the passions of every fan of electric guitar music!
Hendrix, Clapton, BB King, Townshend, Bonamassa, Knopfler, Metheny, Richards, Slash, Gilmour, SRV, Benson, Van Halen, Page, Gallagher...
100 Drum Heroes (Individually priced at £9.99)
A unique collection of interviews and profiles from the makers of Rhythm magazine! The 100 drummers included in this bookazine has each brought something special to bear on the music for which they are best known. Take any of the great tracks on which our Drum Heroes played and remove their beats, replacing them perhaps with a programmed drum machine beat, and you’d lose so much of the music’s personality and enduring appeal. Drums are both the backbone and the soul of music so it wasn’t easy to compile our list of 100 Drum Heroes for inclusion. Not because there aren’t a hundred, there are far more than that and the hardest part was deciding who to leave out. Drummers and fans of drumming all have their opinions, and you’re a discerning lot. But we hope we’ve covered a diverse array of styles and genres, as well as generations, of the greatest drummers who have ever graced a drum throne.
This is not a list of the best drummers, necessarily, it is 100 players – nearly all of whom have been interviewed in Rhythm magazine since its 1985 inception – who have inspired, and continue to inspire, players to pick up sticks and keep the art and tradition of the drumset alive and kicking. Enjoy!
