You might not recog­nise the name, but reg­u­lar read­ers of Clas­sic Rock will def­i­nitely recog­nise his art­work. Steve has il­lus­trated many CR cov­ers and CD art­work over the past decade. This month he’s played a blinder with his strik­ing Led Zep­pelin cover im­age. To see more of

In 1991, En­ter­tain­ment Weekly called Ev­erett True “the man who in­vented grunge”. He’s been try­ing to live down the claim ever since. A for­mer ed­i­tor and pub­lisher of VOX, Melody Maker and Plan B Mag­a­zine, Dr Jerry Thack­ray (his real name) now lives in Hay­wards Heath and teaches mu­sic jour­nal­ism. This month he chats with his old pals Mudhoney (page 30).


In truth, pho­tog­ra­pher John McMurtrie is prob­a­bly still re­cov­er­ing from the time we sent him to Las Vegas with Mon­ster Truck and CR ’s very own Sleaze­grinder – you can see the re­sults in the fea­ture on page 40. But that’s not the only JMC im­agery that’s in CR this month. He’s also Iron Maiden’s of­fi­cial pho­tog­ra­pher - check out his amaz­ing live shots on page 116.
