The New Classic Rock Goes On Sale Today!
It’s Happy New Year - or Happy Old Year – as the latest edition of Classic Rock celebrates a pivotal 12 months in rock history: 1980! Come inside to find out more.
The new issue of Classic Rock tracks back 30 years to 1980, the year that brought you AC/DC’s Back In Black – and a whole lot more besides.
On a downbeat note, ’80 sadly marked the deaths of Bon Scott, and the Johns Bonham and Lennon.
But there was also one heck of a lot to celebrate, as the brand new Classic Rock proves.
* Saxon released not one but two all-time classic albums: Wheels Of Steel and Strong Arm Of The Law.
* Other groundbreaking records (as you can see from the pix on our cover below) included Iron Maiden’s self-titled debut, Motorhead’s Ace Of Spades and Judas Priest’s British Steel.
* Plus there was the small matter of the first ever Castle Donington Monsters Of Rock festival, headlined by Rainbow, to contend with.
* So join us for a mayhemic meander down memory lane, as we cheer everything that made 1980 a year to remember – and never, ever to forget.
But fear not – it ain’t entirely a nostalgia trip. We also celebrate the arrival of 2010 with a FREE 15-track CD featuring some of the hottest hopes for the year.
Plus there’s a second sensational FREE gift: a wall-sprawling poster of the greatest guitars ever, with a foreword from none other than Sir Jimmy Of Page.
All this and more in the new Classic Rock, on sale now.
