The new issue of Classic Rock is on sale now
The new issue of Classic Rock features Kings Of Chaos on the cover. With members of Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard and Deep Purple, they have pedigree to burn. But are they the world’s first billion-dollar supergroup, or just a glorified covers band?
The latest Classic Rock also comes with a free CD, Metamorphosis. Compiled by Sleazegrinder, it features 17 doses of high-grade super-rock set to change the world – or at least ruin your hearing – including La Chinga, Under The Sun, Blackpool Republic, Claw Toe, 68-75, Terminal Gods and more…
Elsewhere in the issue:
Stephen Stills – Growing tired of the tensions in CSN&Y, in 1970 he moved to the UK to record his debut album, with a little help from his friends – and not just any friends: Jimi, Ringo, Eric…
Hanoi Rocks – “Don’t blame me for glam metal. Most of those bands played hairspray cans better than their instruments.” Andy McCoy and Mike Monroe look back on revolutionising rock’n’roll.
Kiss – The make-up! The myths! The movies! With the band celebrating their 40th anniversary, Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons reveal all.
Dust – They came, they saw… they invented heavy metal. And now they’re finally getting the credit due to them.
Josh Homme – After a near-death experience and prolonged depression, the Queens Of The Stone Age mainman has emerged with a new lease of life.
The Story Behind The Songs: Saxon – Inspired by their hugely successful and pivotal appearance at the Monsters Of Rock festival in 1980, Saxon’s biggest hit single proved to be a metal monster all of its own.
Q&A: Glenn Danzig – The former Danzig and Misfits man on punk, fame, religion and saving Marilyn Manson’s ass.
Fly On The Wall – “I proposed that businessmen should wear clown suits.” It’s 1979, and Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra is running for Mayor of San Francisco.
Buyer’s Guide: Black Sabbath – With 23 albums, they’ve helped create metal, influenced generations of musicians and recorded some of the most bluesy, ballsy and downright heavy songs of all time.
Heavy Load: George Thorogood – “My blues days are pretty much behind me. I’m too happy to play the blues.”
