In this special issue guest-edited by Bryan Adams, we look back over decades of Adams making high-grade classic rock – and one of the biggest-selling records ever. These days he says he’s “a photographer moonlighting as a singer”. We present an exclusive gallery of a selection of his amazing portraiture.
He also interviews Rod Stewart, who tells him about his music, being on tour, his model-railway passion, being “one of the lucky ones”, and more.
Other features include…
In the Classic Rock Interview, Paul Rodgers, one of rock’s all-time great vocalists looks back at his life and times with Free, Bad Company, The Firm and Queen, his solo career and much more.
Robbie Robertson: we remember the songwriter and lead guitarist whose highly influential group The Band gave birth to Americana.
From pleas for equality to anti-war sentiments and social commentary, we look at some of the greatest peace songs.
Max Webster never quite took off outside their native Canada. Years after it all came to a sad ending, their legacy lives on through frontman Kim Mitchell.
Corey Taylor: Ozzy Osbourne asked to join the Slipknot man’s band, he heard the world’s dirtiest joke from Lemmy, battled sore loser Dave Grohl at table tennis, raided Metallica’s fridge…. He’s also one of 21st-century rock’s biggest stars.
Black Stone Cherry are a case of a band that stays together plays together, rather than the other way round.
Regular features include The Zombies, Grace Potter, Susan Tedeschi and more…
Not forgetting the biggest and loudest rock reviews section on the planet.
