This month it's our Best Of 2016 extravaganza, in which we look back on all the important events, albums and songs of the last 12 months – and pay tribute to the late Leonard Cohen and Leon Russell. Find out which albums made our Top 50 of the year (spoiler alert: it includes The Temperance Movement, Rival Sons, The Cadillac Three, Whiskey Myers...), and which 2016 songs you should plug into this Christmas with our Ultimate Playlist. We've also got a host of great longer reads, including an exclusive interview with Status Quo co-founder Rick Parfitt, in which he finally lifts the lid on his health and plans for the future. Additionally, Classic Rock writer David Sinclair looks back on his time spent with the late, great David Bowie. We also caught up with Augustines (as they sadly called it a day), talked to Metallica's James Hetfield, chatted to Iggy Pop and Van Morrison, and looked back on AC/DC's turbulent 12 months.
We travelled to Japan for this year's star-studded Classic Rock Awards (aka the Tokyo Super Jam), which you can read all about this issue – including appearances from Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Joe Perry, Joe Elliott and Awards host Dave Mustaine among others. Oh, and an exclusive interview with Johnny Depp, in which we discover the extent of his passion for rock'n'roll.
Want more? We've the story behind Europe's classic The Final Countdown, the definitive buyer's guide to Elvis Presley, an all-guns-blazing interview and live review for Steel Panther, coverage of BluesFest 2016, interviews with Billy Gould, Slim Jim Phantom, Pixies and more. All that, plus the ultimate rock reviews section and our free 15-track CD, featuring some of the best songs of 2016. Enjoy!
