DP in Classic Rock Magazine


Anybody bought the last iussue with Muse on the cover, promising a piece about DP next album? Is it any worth?
I don't like Muse but I'm considering buying the mag for a few decent words and pictures about DP. Impressions?

Re: DP in Classic Rock Magazine


I bought the magazine. There's a short interview with Gillan on the new album. He continues the band's PR policy on the album, saying very little of it. He praises the atmosphere in the band and Bob Ezrin.

I bought the issue because of a SRV story, which was a huge disappointment. Just a selection of quotes on his final days, and a picture of the helicopter crash site, with a macabre note that someone found his trademark hat from the wreckage.

The Muse story blatantly places their guitar player on the same level as Hendrix, and compares the band to Zeppelin and Queen.

There's a bonus book with the mag, filled with previously unprinted stories on classic rock, inc. a piece (which I haven't read) on Machine Head. I didn't read why the articles were not printed before, but as someone with professional experience on writing and editing, I assume they were not considered to be good enough.

Is it me or is the quality of music journalism dropping at the same speed as record sales?

Thanks Rezi!
I think I'll get the new iussue as I've just seen there's a feature on Magnum "Chase the dragon", which I love!
The "lost" numbers of the magazine (where they cover forgotten albums and artists) are probably the best ones.

I saw it yesterday in a shop and I (well, my wife) ended up buying it. Tha band picture is cool, they look very relaxed.
(Fantastic double page picture of Thin Lizzy in Australia, by the way)

In the english edition we get Status Quo, Clutch, Buckcherry, Black Keys, [sign in to see URL] us. emoticon

Behind one more cover for Guns and roses there's plenty of Purple in the 198 iussue of the mag: a piece on Glenn Hughes's California Breed, the story of DP The Mule and a full page on the Made in Japan reiussue. Plenty on Zeppelin reiussues as well.

Anybody bought the last issue of the magazine with Sabbath on the cover? It promises a "lost interview" with blackers. Part one of two, actually. Is it any good?

Re:


The July edition? There is no Blackmore interview in it. It seems to be in the edition with Clapton on the cover (Classic Rock 225).
