Welcome to his nightmare: Alice Cooper has takes the reins as guest editor of the new issue of Classic Rock. And he brings you tales from rock’s dark side, including…well, read on for all the info.
Was he really kidnapped by the Mafia? Or was it a set-up by his manager Mike Jeffery? Inside a weird period in late 1969.
He’s one of rock’s great survivors – but nothing could have prepared him for events two months ago when he lost a leg. Exclusive new interview!
Venice, July 1989. It was supposed to be just another Floyd extravaganza. No one expected blackmail, broken promises, and a scandal that brought down the Venice city council.
Guns N’ Roses
It’s 1988, and GN’R are at the height of their infamy. Izzy Stradlin’s obsession with a ‘missing’ million dollars leads to a rumble in the New Orleans jungle…
The booze was starting to kill Alice, so at the height of his powers, his wife and manager checked him into an asylum – little knowing it would inspire perhaps his most personal work.
From The Inside
He managed Led Zeppelin and helped them conquer the world. But in the end he paid a heavy price.
Deranged bandmates. Mysterious demises. Narrowly escaping death. Shafted by managers… And that’s not even half of it. The amazing true story of blues rock’s unluckiest man.
In 1990 he was one of the world’s hottest guitarists. Today he can’t walk, talk or move any part of his body other than an eyelid – but he’s still making music.
That ‘difficult second album’ looked like it would be a breeze. Then tragedy cast a dark shadow over the recording.
Cosmic capers and the recording of their spaced-out masterpiece In Seach Of Space.
Written on a paper bag while he was high, and not considered by him to have hit potential, Are You Gonna Go My Way enabled Lenny to stop using public transport.

There’s also a free CD (cover below).
All this and so much more in the hot new issue of Classic Rock. Out now!
