Wel­come

Classic Rock - - Welcome - Siân Llewellyn, Ed­i­tor

Like it or not, re­unions (both big and small) have been an important part of the rock’n’roll fir­ma­ment in re­cent years. Whether it was the Ea­gles freez­ing Hell over and get­ting back on stage to­gether, Sta­tus Quo’s Fran­tic Four tak­ing things out for an­other spin around the block, the orig­i­nal Alice Cooper band re­turn­ing for a cou­ple of songs and some shows, Ozzy re­join­ing Sab­bath, The Smash­ing Pump­kins play­ing an­niver­sary dates right now, the list goes on and on…

In Clas­sic Rock’s world, the one re­union we prob­a­bly all hoped for but didn’t re­ally think would ever ma­te­ri­alise was Guns N’ Roses. Would we ever see Axl, Slash and Duff to­gether again on stage in our life­time? Well, it turns out, yes we would. And it’s been one of the most epic re­unions yet… So this month, as he pre­pares to re­lease his lastest solo al­bum with Myles Kennedy & The Con­spir­a­tors, we sit down with Slash (ie The Busiest Man In Rock) to hear all about life back in GN’R, his new record, #MeToo and gen­er­ally where he’s at in 2018.

Else­where in this is­sue we dis­cover how Pink Floyd’s Nick Ma­son put to­gether his Saucer­ful Of Se­crets; we visit Fish at home; re­visit the Clash’s trip to Ire­land in 1977 and so much more.

Un­til next month…
