The New Issue Of AOR Is On Sale Now
Issue three of Classic Rock Presents AOR is in the stores now.
A year to make. More than $1 million in recording costs. Deadlines Missed. Budgets broken. Classic Rock Presents AOR analyses the dramatic birth of Foreigner 4.
The third sensational issue of AOR magazine celebrates a very special birthday: the 30th anniversary of the release of Foreigner 4 – the classic 1981 album that brought you such massive hits as Waiting For A Girl Like You, Urgent, Juke Box Hero and many more.
Our epic 10-page article tells you everything you need to know about the creation of this melodic rock masterpiece, based around a revealing new interview with Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones.
We also talk to former band members Rick Wills and Dennis Elliott; Tony Platt, who engineered Foreigner 4; plus the man who played synthesiser on the album – none other than Thomas Dolby.
To bring us bang up to date, we also interview the band’s current frontman, Kelly Hansen, and ask him what it feels like singing those classic Foreigner songs today.
AOR also comes with a fantastic free CD: Raised On Radio, featuring the very best of the latest melodic rock releases, including tracks by Def Leppard, Night Ranger, Alyson Avenue, Lionville, Airrace and 10 more.
Elsewhere in the issue, we find out why Chicago sacked their talismanic frontman, Peter Cetera.
We marvel at the the success of hitmaker supreme, Desmond Child.
We talk to Richard Marx, Black ’N Blue, Hardcore Superstar, Romeo’s Daughter and Eden’s Curse.
We look at the softer side of southern rock, when bands like .38 Special, Blackfoot, The Outlaws and ZZ Top stormed the singles charts and ruled the airwaves.
…And we travel Stateside to the M3 Festival in Maryland to watch the likes of Kix, Jetboy, LA Guns, Firehouse and Whitesnake star in an event we’re dubbing ‘hair metal’s final stand’.
All this, plus the latest melodic rock news, album and live reviews (including Download, Z Rock, Sweden Rock and the Journey/Foreigner/Styx tour).
Not to mention our regular spotlight on new bands including Katana, Serpentine and Wildstreet.
