The new issue of Classic Rock celebrates 40 years of AC/DC
The brand new issue of Classic Rock is dedicated to a momentous landmark in rock’n'roll – 40 years of AC/DC!
We celebrate the pivotal anniversary of the greatest rock’n’roll band of them all – that’s four decades of dirty deeds, riff-raff and rock’n’roll damnation. Including…
Their first gig
Creating sparks on their first visit to Britain
Inside Highway To Hell
The 80s struggles
The 90s comeback
The Zappa connection
Inside the AC/DC ‘mafia’
The story of Black Ice
And much more…
Plus there are TWO amazing free CDs!
1. Shoot To Thrill – 18 tracks from garage-rattling riff’n’rollers inspired by the big, sexy noise of Angus and co, including The Deafening, The Turbo Lovers, Glitter Dick, Peace Killers, 58 Shots, Black Sheriff, El Camino and many others.
2. Complete 12-track debut album by The Dead Daisies, including the single Lock’N'Loud featuring Slash! The band feature members of Guns N’ Roses, the Rolling Stones and more – find out more about them here.
That’s not all – there’s also a bonus Sharp Dressed Man magazine, featuring 32 pages of elegantly wasted rock’n'roll clobber. Check out the cover on the right.

Elsewhere in Classic Rock issue No.191 (cover date December 2013):
Mott The Hoople – In 1973, a revitalised Mott stepped out of Bowie’s shadow and made their finest album. But their golden year wouldn’t be without casualties.
The Winery Dogs – Between them Richie Kotzen, Mike Portnoy and Billy Sheehan may have more chops than a butcher’s fridge but, this supergroup trio have got bite as well as a bark.
The Darkness – Bursting out of Lowestoft, they took OTT rock (and bollock-hugging catsuits) to the top of the charts. Ten years on, we tell the story of their stellar rise – and inglorious fall.
Black Oak Arkansas – Born under a bad sign? Thanks to bad fortune and bad advice, they became the overlooked stars of southern rock. Now they’re back to set the record straight.
The Story Behind The Song: Humble Pie – With its monolithic riff and yelping lead vocal, Stone Cold Fever (the live version in particular) typifies one of the best live blues-rock bands of their era.
Competitions – Win Orange Amps gear worth £1,100! And be a rock star for the day with the Dead Daisies!
Buyer’s Guide: Trent Reznor – After ground-breaking albums with NIN, the reluctant icon found success as the go-to man for ‘edgy’ Hollywood soundtracks.
Heavy Load: Buddy Guy – “Picking cotton on a farm is a long way from picking guitar in the White House.” The man Clapton calls “the best guitar player alive” talks blues, hard times and playing for Obama.
All this and more in the new Classic Rock – in the shops and available electronically now.
