Get a FREE digital Awards mag!
Awards 2012 is the name of a new, free, exclusive to Apple Newsstand digital magazine that can be downloaded now.
PLUS: today only on Newsstand, the last six back issues of Classic Rock and sister mag Prog are 69p!
Packed with interviews and exclusive unseen pictures of awards winners, the free Awards magazine also includes a video intro from host Duff McKagan, behind the scenes video and a gallery of pictures.
It features interviews with ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason, Nikki Sixx, The Damned (whose interview is hilariously interrupted by Lemmy), Rival Sons (with fan Vic Reeves), Family, Ginger, Status Quo, Russ Ballard and Anthrax.
If that wasn’t enough, Manic Street Preacher James Dean Bradfield explains why he loves Rush, Bruce Dickinson pays tribute to Jon Lord, Roxy Music’s Phil Manzanera is interviewed with Rick Wakeman, and promoter John Giddings pays tribute to his old mentor, Genesis/Floyd manager Tony Smith.
Classic Rock Editor in Chief Scott Rowley said: “Every year at the CR Awards we get load of pictures, and hours of interviews with the stars that we can never fit in the magazine. This year, we decided to make them ALL available for free as soon as possible, with a few bonuses for the 300,000+ people who’ve downloaded the Classic Rock app.. Now everyone can share in the anarchy and chaos of rock music’s annual office party.”
