Rock Candy Magazine is a bi-monthly physical mag, with a free digital download for those who buy online.

It’s the brainchild of Derek Oliver, Howard Johnson and Malcolm Dome, three Kerrang! writers who lived it all in the ’80s.

It’s aimed at the discerning fan who wants to wallow in nostalgia and relive the glory days of classic rock.

Rock Candy Mag is available from UK retailers and in shops around the world via distribution from industry giant Marketforce. Also available direct from us at www.rockcandymag.com

It’s 100 pages of the purest classic rock from the ’70s and ’80s, with no room for punk, new wave, skinny tie pop or post-industrial claptrap! And it’s all treated with respect and illustrated with the finest photography of the era.

Please help us spread the word.

GUNS N ROSES Reunited Lineup & Tour Announced January 6

Artist: 
Release Year: 
2015
Categories: 
 
Billboard has added their name and credentials to the list of sources openly discussing details of the planned Guns N Roses reunion. You can read what they have posted here: http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/6828129/guns-n-roses-reun...
 
Most of the article mirrors what I have previously posted here (repeated below), but I can now add that the launch date is apparently January 6. Stay tuned!
 

 

GUNS N ROSES have been the subject of continued reunion speculation for several years now, but the whispers become a roar earlier this year when guitarist Slash publicly stated that he and frontman Axl Rose had patched up differences that kept them estranged for nearly two decades.
 
So what is the future of what used to be rock n roll’s “most dangerous band”?
 
It is no great secret that a reunion is coming. The pitch has been with concert promoters for several months now, with confirmation coming from a couple of those agents that the band is looking to play select festivals in 2016 before moving onto a larger stadium tour in 2017 – to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the classic Appetite For Destruction album.
 
But what hasn’t been discussed however, is who exactly will be involved in the reunion. The rumors have all touted a reunion of the “classic” or “original” lineup.
 
But it’s not what people might have expected.
 
From everything I have heard from multiple trusted sources, the new Guns N Roses lineup will consist of:
 
Axl
Slash
Duff
 
With:
Richard Fortus
Frank Ferrer
Dizzy Reed
 
Plans are still evolving, but it appears the band is pitching a few high-profile European rock festivals and Coachella in the USA has been mentioned too.
 
All of this is rumoured until confirmed, but from what I’ve heard, Steven Adler, Izzy Stradlin and Matt Sorum are not going to be involved.
 
Stay tuned…
