This month’s contributors

Classic Rock

CRAZY CRAZY NIGHT! • With the biggest, brightest pyro display since Krakatoa and the Big Bang. Kiss blow 2020 into the stratosphere.

Gerry Marsden • September 24, 1942 – January 3, 2021

Alexi Laiho • Announced January 4, 2021

RIP Thank you and good night.

William ‘Jesus’ Jellett • June 6, 1948 - January 8, 2021

“After Neil died, music didn’t seem important” • Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee pay tribute on the first anniversary of Peart’s death.

W.E.T. • The mostly studio-based supergroup return with a new album, still aiming to keep melodic hard rock alive.

NEWS

Austin Meade • Meet the preacher’s son with rock in his bones and a gift for telling stories that resonate.

BURIED TREASURE • Riches from the rock underground

Transatlantic • The progressive supergroup’s latest LP is so huge they had to name it twice (yes, really). Neal Morse fills us in.

NEWS

NEW ROCK PHOTOGRAPHER 2020 • We asked you to vote for the Affinity Photo New Rock Photographer 2020. Here is your winner.

MY FIRST LOVE • John Mayall THE BLUES ALONE

NEWS

Walter Egan • The West Coast/Americana crossover artist has a new album, based on ex-super-groupie Pamela Des Barres.

Mason Hill • It’s been a long time coming, but these young Scots are ready to rock and conquer.

Accept I’m A Rebel • How the German heavy metallers took a glam-rock-tinged stomper – a long-lost early AC/DC track written by Malcolm and Angus’s brother Alex – and made it their own.

Ricky Warwick • The Black Star Riders frontman on his new solo album, his debt to Thin Lizzy, and Joe Elliott telling him how to sing.

Cats In Space • They embrace the 70s, are wary of the ‘business’, and reckon there are lots of potential fans out there.

LESLIE WEST • Having made his name in the early 70s with Mountain, as a guitarist he was praised by many of his peers, Jeff Beck once describing him as “the greatest living guitarist in the world

THE STARS PAY TRIBUTE

THE GOLD STANDARD • Brian May and Roger Taylor look back at 50 years of Queen: the incredible journey of four young musicians with “an insane confidence and a precocious belief in our own unique talents” who conquered the world

GUARANTEED TO BLOW YOUR MIND • Eleven Queen songs you never hear on the radio but should.

FELL ON BLACK DAYS • From child model and actor to rock frontwoman with The Pretty Reckless, Taylor Momsen’s life followed an upward curve. Then suddenly tragedy struck and it became life-threatening turmoil.

FLOWER POWER • Now bolstered by the songs and shriek of new frontman Glenn Hughes, The Dead Daisies are a supergroup to take seriously. High time, then, to settle the debate over whether this is a ‘real’ band or just a rich man’s plaything.

MICK FLEETWOOD • He arrived in Swinging Sixties London as a dyslexic school leaver and aspirant drummer – and discovered a world of blues, booze, women and global success with Fleetwood Mac. But even after a half-century of making incredible music, perhaps his greatest achievement is keeping the wheels on rock’s greatest soap opera.

BRICK BY BRICK • For years they watched other bands get the breaks while they didn’t, but The Dirty Nil’s one-step-at-a-time climb has finally paid off.

STEVEN WILSON • Look at the world, not at your phone....
