Issue 324’s cover feature we look back at 1984 – The Year That Everything Changed. Sitting between the heritage of the 70s and the big-haired peak to which the 80s would ascend, 1984 was a quietly pivotal time for music, popular culture and the world as we knew it.
We look at the albums and talk to some of the artists that helped make it the year that it was, including Iron Maiden on the making of Powerslave; how The Bangles wooed 1984 with their power-pop debut All Over The Place; Black Sabbath – how in 1984 they were almost obliterated; albums from Bruce Springsteen, Prince, Whitesnake, The Pretenders, Dio and many more…
Other features include…
Guitarist Mick Mars put together arguably the most hedonistic metal band of their era, but shunned much of the outrageous excess. Now out of Mötley Crüe, he’s starting a solo career. He talks about this and more in The Classic Rock Interview.
Blackberry Smoke reflect on almost a quarter of a century of keeping their dream alive.
Regular features include Don Henley, Peter Criss, Robby Krieger, Ministry, Justin Hayward and more, plus the biggest and loudest rock reviews section on the planet.
