Elsewhere in the issue:
Ultimate Power – Join us as we visit the hot new club-night where nothing’s cooler than a Meat Loaf power ballad…

Bai Bang – Stalwart Swedish sleazers with a melodic twist, Bai Bang went from supporting Bros at a Polish festival to delivering glam-rock brilliance.
Diane Warren – We get to know the woman with a legitimate claim to having penned the world’s greatest power ballads.
