SLASH & FRIENDS Cover story! With a little help from his friends – Lemmy, Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Chris Cornell and many more – has Slash just delivered the first great rock album of the decade? Classic Rock talks to the The Man With The Hat and some of the star-studded cast of collaborators on the record.
QUIREBOYS With the Quireboys on the road again in support of a new album, we catch up with Spike and co. to share a drink and a tale or two of times past.
COLLABORATIONS Inspired by the success of Slash’s numerous collaborations on his new album, we look at some memorable tracks recorded by people with a little help from their friends.
BACHMAN & TURNER With Bachman-Turner Overdrive in the 70s Randy Bachman and Fred Turner were huge – and we’re not talking just record sales. Now, after fallouts and a lot of water under the bridge, the pair are back together to rock once more.
AIRBOURNE Their new album No Guts, No Glory is proof that these AC/DC-influenced rockers (“I don’t think we’ll ever shake off those AC/DC comparisons) aren’t just a flash in the pan.
SOUNDGARDEN Kim Thayil recalls his “pterodactyl on crack” guitar line that fired the making of the band’s classic Jesus Christ Pose.
JOE BONAMASSA Modern blues’ fastest-rising star talks about the honour of a guest spot from BB King and getting help from Robert Plant, and spills the beans on his new project with Glenn Hughes.
JOEY TEMPEST He met Axl in the toilet, Hasselhoff on the Baywatch set and Ron Jeremy on a porn movie shoot. These and more stories from the Europe frontman who parties harder than you’d think.
RUSH It’s 1980 and Rush, of all people, have scored a hit single. Not only that, but girls – yes, girls – have started to come to their gigs. How will the band cope?
PLUS! Win an ultra-rare flightcase full of Kiss live albums worth £1,000!
All this and more in the April issue of Classic Rock (No.143) on sale now.
