Woe to you, oh Earth and sea, for the Devil sends the Beast with wrath… And thank goodness for that!
In tribute to their magnificent The Legacy Of The Beast tour, quite possibly the greatest heavy metal production ever staged, we’ve crowned British rock legends Iron Maiden as our Band Of The Year for 2018. To salute one of our greatest national treasures, issue 11 of Planet Rock magazine features exclusive interviews with vocalist Bruce Dickinson and bandleader/ bassist Steve Harris, as they take us inside their most spectacular show ever… and also look back at where all this madness started four decades ago!
Beyond the mighty Maiden, Aerosmith’s ‘Toxic Twins’ Steven Tyler and Joe Perry look back on the album that turned them into America’s favourite rock’n’roll band, we go on the road with Lzzy Hale’s Halestorm and we look at exactly why rising stars Greta Van Fleet are 2018’s most divisive band. This month’s Planet Rock Interview finds blues guitar hero Joe Bonamassa standing at a career crossroads, we salute geek rockers Cheap Trick in our Cult Heroes section, and Disturbed frontman David Draiman ignores the sound of silence to talk us through the classic songs which continue to inspire him in My Planet Rocks.
All this plus Queen, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, UFO, Lemmy, Iggy Pop, Inglorious, Von Hertzen Brothers, Kris Barras, REO Speedwagon and more… and Eddie immortalised in real stained glass!
