Elsewhere in the issue:
This year is shaping up to deliver some quality rock, from young dudes to the oldest swingers in town. Our 26-page look into the future looks at…
Deep Purple – The death of Jon Lord gave added poignancy to the recording of the band’s new album. “We could feel his spirit,” says Ian Gillan.
Tame Impala – The hotly tipped young Aussie band’s latest, Lonerism, combines old-school 60s psychedelia with hi-tech modern studio FX – and the result is dizzingly commercial.
Slash – As his mammoth Apocalyptic Love tour nears its end, he takes time out to debunk reunion rumours and talk movies.
The Temperance Movement – Swagger, bravado and soul: you’ve either got it or you ain’t. There’s rock music and rock bands, and this lot have got it all.
Alice In Chains – The new album is on its way, but Jerry Cantrell is determined to keep an air of mystery about AIC’s fifth.
Black Sabbath – New material from the metal pioneers is tantalisingly close. Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi explain all.
Graveyard – Steeped in Black Sabbath and Pentagram, these fast-rising Swedes are getting angrier and heavier with every release.
Plus previews on Big Wreck, Primal Scream, Saxon, Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, Dave Grohl, Opeth, Def Leppard, Virginmarys, RNDM, Goldsboro, Saint Jude, The Answer, Diagonal, Jane’s Addiction, Scorpions and more…
In between starting the Summer Of Love as a pop phenomenon and ending it in whirlwind of booze, LSD and out-of-control hedonism, they managed to make their unsung masterpiece, Strange Days.
Manic Street Preachers
They were a punk-metal explosion of great lyrics and killer riffs – Morrissey meets Michael Schenker – that threatened to split after one album. “Trouble is, we’re still here.”
The Stories Behind The Songs: Crosby, Stills & Nash
Marrakesh Express, an LSD-tinged account of Graham Nash’s North African adventure, became the sound of the counterculture – and a hit single too.
Q&A: Kid Rock
Detroit’s wild child on his home town, bow-hunting with Ted Nugent, and recording the best album of his career.
Fly On The Wall: Stevie Ray Vaughan’s fatal flight
“The rotor blades hit a ski-lift cable. The passengers were thrown out of the ’copter as it came apart.” The inside story of the tragic death of the guitarist some say was the best ever.
Buyer’s Guide: Lynyrd Skynyrd
Nobody does southern rock better than the band whose blend of southern soul and hard rock defined the genre.
Heavy Load: Keith Emerson
The keyboard virtuoso on ELP, Three Fates and the future.
All this and more in the new issue of Classic Rock (cover date February 2013), on sale now.
