ROCK CANDY RECORDS is proud to launch ROCK CANDY MAGAZINE, a new magnificent bi-monthly physical publication, with a digital magazine add-on. Yes, it’s printed on real paper! And yes, it’s aimed at the discerning Rock Candy customer who wants to wallow in nostalgia and relive the glory days of classic rock. Unashamedly "old school", it's written by the writers who were there at the time.
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.
Produced to the same exacting standards as every Rock Candy Records release, overseen by Master Of Mayhem Derek Oliver and edited by Howard Johnson, Issue 1 features contributions by many of the great rock journalists from the glory days of Kerrang! and Metal Hammer, including Malcolm Dome, Paul Suter, Paul Elliott, Philip Wilding, Dave Reynolds, Jerry Ewing, Xavier Russell and Steffan Chirazi.
Inside the debut issue you'll find features on:
Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott on the stories behind 20 of his fave Leppard photos.
The making of Rush’s prog masterpiece ‘Hemispheres’.
Warrant’s doomed vocalist Jamie Lane - a tale of tragic loss and unfulfilled promise.
Whatever happened to Kerrang!’s Ladykillers?
Girl, the influential glam band that time forgot.
The darkest days of Saxon before they bounced back.
Mercurial meetings with Ritchie Blackmore.
Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci’s memories of his first ever gig.
An in-depth reappraisal of Aerosmith’s seminal ‘Rocks’ album.
