JB of Grand Magus: ‘If I edited Classic Rock…’
Grand Magus frontman Janne ‘JB’ Christoffersson has appeared in an exclusive video detailing what he’d do if he was made guest editor of Classic Rock. View it below.
He namechecks Yngwie Malmsteen and Motorhead for inclusion in his special issue, and singles out rock veterans Nazareth for big coverage.
JB says: “I’m sure they’ve been in Classic Rock many times, but I feel don’t get the recognition they deserve . They were one of the first bands I heard as a kid. I just think they’re brilliant.”
He says of the Scots band’s record Hair Of The Dog: “It belongs up there with real classic albums like In Rock, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and things like this. It’s of equal quality and it’s a really ferocious album.”
Grand Magus release their seventh studio album, Triumph And Power, today via Nuclear Blast. Classic Rock offered a stream of the entire record on Friday. It’s available for purchase now.
