The new issue of Classic Rock is out now
It's another dangerously toxic edition of Classic Rock!
It’s an edition from another dimension… with Aerosmith on the cover!
Issue No.178 of Classic Rock – cover-date December – is in the stores now.
To celebrate the release of Aerosmith’s brand new album, Music From Another Dimension, we’ve got none other than Steven Tyler and Joe Perry on our cover. We ask the questions: Is Tyler too big for rock’n’roll? Have the Toxic Twins buried the hatchet or are they close to a permanent vacation? Find out in the new Classic Rock!
Elsewhere in the issue…
Andy Fraser – The Free man’s journey from All Right Now to close to death – and his amazing return.
ELO – The Classic Rock Interview: Jeff Lynne on orchestral manoeuvres, big hits and bigger friends.
Little Caesar – They were feted by GN’R’s manager, signed to hip 90s label Geffen – and held back by music industry bullshit.
Soundgarden – Reunited and returning to Seattle gave the band back their sound – but it also risked a return to bad habits.
Alvin Lee – Ten Years After, Woodstock and beyond: the forgotten guitar hero looks back.
Corey Taylor – The other side of the Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman.
Frank Zappa – Enigma, walking contradiction, musical genius.
The Treatment – It’s the tour of the year – Kiss, Mötley Crüe, Hollywood stars and lots of money. And the young Brit band are in the thick of it.
Motörhead – Speeding off his tits in Hollywood in 1974, Lemmy wrote the song that would change his life forever… can you guess which one? (Clue: the title is also the name of Mr Kilmister’s band)
Steven Adler – Strokes, heart attacks, drug addiction – is the man who got kicked out of GN’R the biggest fuck-up in rock’n’roll? Not any more, apparently.
Buyer’s Guide: Wishbone Ash – With their twin-guitar frontline they created a whole new sound that many since have copied.
Steven Wilson – “I’ve seen people online discussing whether I may be gay.” The Porcupine Tree (and the rest) mainman on chaos theory and rumours.
On the free CD: The Best Of 2012 (Vol. 1) – With everything from prog to rock, metal and blues, our free CD is part one of the definitive soundtrack to what’s been a brilliant year of music, including Rush, ZZ Top, Slash, The Darkness, Black Country Communion, Down and more…
All this and more in the new Classic Rock, with Aerosmith on the cover, on sale now.

There’s been so much good music this year, a single CD won’t do.
