Planet Rock Issue 19


Let us deliver this issue of Planet Rock Magazine direct to your doorstep.

In issue 19 of Planet Rock magazine we look back at 1980, the greatest year in rock history, and celebrate the albums, artists and events which changed our world forever. We also pay tribute to the late, great Neil Peart, Rush’s extraordinary drummer and lyricist, who sadly passed away on January 7. Our epic cover feature salutes a landmark 12 months in the hard rock/heavy metal scene. In part one, we recall how Black Sabbath came back from the dead, with Ronnie James Dio at the helm, on the magnificent Heaven And Hell album. In part two, Planet Rock Contributing Editor Mark Blake takes us on a personal journey back to 1980, the year of Back In Black, British Steel, Ace Of Spades, Iron Maiden, Wheels Of Steel and more. And in part three, Saxon frontman Biff Byford shares an eyewitness account of the birth of one of Britain’s great cultural gatherings, the Monsters Of Rock festival at Donington Park, with exclusive photos taken from the new official history of the event. In other regular features, Iron Maiden/British Lion leader Steve Harris appears in My Planet Rocks, Alice Cooper shares My Guide To Life, we capture Van Halen backstage, we reassess UFO’s brilliant back catalogue in our Buyers Guide and These Damn Crows share their ultimate songs for seduction in time for Valentine’s Day! In this month’s reviews section we tell you all you need to know about new albums from The Cadillac Three, Stone Temple Pilots, Therapy?, H.E.A.T., Greg Dulli and more, and check out a brilliant new documentary film on ZZ Top. Plus we’ve the inside track on another storming Planet Rockstock.
