The Foo Fighters Take Over This Issue
This issue Foo Fighters take over Classic Rock as Guest Editors and choose the content, so we thought it only fair to also have a feature on them. So in our cover feature we look at how Dave Grohl has taken the band from effectively a solo project to one of the biggest bands in the world.
Other features include…
Rainbow: how sackings, seances, spooks and being scared shitless all fed into the making of their truly great album Long Live Rock ’N’ Roll.
Siouxsie And The Banshees. The editor of Zigzag magazine at the time of their rise tells the beginnings-to-glory story of the inventors of goth.
King Crimson’s Starless And Bible Black is one of the finest live albums of all time – and one that most people thought was a studio album.
Bob Mould: the internet has gone off the rails; he has a problem with hypocrites; being a musician is a luxury… These are among the things that shape his world view.
How The Police made the album that turned them into international superstars: Zenyatta Mondatta.
For a short period in the 60s the Walker Brothers were superstars: bigger than The Beatles, idolised and mobbed – but it was all unbearable for their main singer.
We track down cult hero Happy Chichester, one of the most underrated songwriters of his generation, who almost joined the Foos.
Parquet Courts: meet the maverick heirs to the Velvet Underground throne.
Plus David Bowie, the Cadillac Three, X-Ray Spex, Cardiacs, Charlie Starr and more… Not forgetting the biggest and loudest rock reviews section on the planet.
