The new issue of Classic Rock is out now – with special fold-out ‘Sabbath cross’ cover!
To celebrate the band’s comeback, every issue of Classic Rock comes with a free collector’s edition fold-out ‘Sabbath cross’ cover. Check out the full package on the left – and also in the never-ending video at the bottom of this post!
Recorded in circumstances that would have killed off lesser bands, the Sabs have beaten the odds with new record 13. Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler tell the story of the band’s triumphant comeback, which has already earned them a chart-topping album…
Plus there’s a free 15-track CD, Unleashed Vol. II, featuring the world’s best new bands including The Graveltones, Valentiine, Voodoo Six, StoneRider, Orchid, The Howling, Screaming Eagles, Midnight Spin…
BONUS! The digital edition of Classic Rock comes with all the music from our free CD… PLUS a specially filmed 25-minute video interview with Dan Aykroyd talking about the blues!
Elsewhere in the new issue:
In our exclusive interview, Paul McCartney charts the rise of his post-Beatles band Wings, from their humble beginnings to the monster Wings Over America tour.
The Blues Brothers star, an expert on the genre in real life, talks us through his 10 (okay, 11) favourite blues tracks.
Check out our guide to the must-hear albums, must-see mega-gigs and big-screen extravaganzas set to heat up the summer, from artists including…
The Rolling Stones – Jagger and Richards have stopped bitching at each other in time for the band’s 50th anniversary. Next stop: Hyde Park.
Kings Of Chaos – Four-fifths of Guns N’ Roses, the singer from Def Leppard and a passing member of Deep Purple. Say hello to the ultimate supergroup.
Metallica – Lights! Camera! Action! The metal giants return to the big screen. But don’t expect Some Kind Of Monster 2.
Alter Bridge – Lock up your capes! Rock‘s new superstars-in-waiting are getting in touch with their inner Yes on album four…
Fleetwood Mac – They’ve had their share of highs and lows, but rock’s most dysfunctional band will be reeling back the years on their first tour in four years.
Plus – Patty Griffin, Roger Waters, Pearl Jam, Judas Priest, Motörhead, ZZ Top, Black Crowes and many more…
The band began with a gunshot and jail time. They toured with Guns N’ Roses, hit the charts, and dissolved in a blur of betrayal and substance abuse. Then things got really bad…
They were only ever supposed to be a side-project. But then the beast awoke and things got out of hand…
The Story Behind The Songs – Genesis
Lyrically obtuse, fittingly sprawling and a little bit daft, Supper’s Ready became not only a cornerstone of progressive rock but also one rock’s great epic monuments.
Q&A – Carlos Santana
The multi-Grammy winner on Santana the man, the band, spirituality, past glories and future plans.
Buyers Guide – Bruce Springsteen
One of the best songwriters of his generation, his hard-crafted catalogue is littered with unforgettable classics and anthems.
Heavy Load – Don Felder
The former Eagle on divorce, poverty and pudding, and how the only response he’s had from other Eagles “is from their lawyers”.
