ROCK CANDY MAGAZINE – Issue 7 / 8 / 9
As you know, Rock Candy Records is one of the best CD reissue labels out there. Since a couple of years, they are releasing a magazine, actually printed on paper like in the good ‘ol times.
In the style of the essay included into each CD booklet about the band in question, ROCK CANDY MAGAZINE is a bi-monthly, 100-page Rock publication produced and managed by a bunch of specialized British Rock journalists with decades of experience in music and mags, writing for legendary publications including Kerrang!, Metal Hammer and Raw.
Simply put, in each issue there’s loads of great features and articles on many great bands and artists from the classic eras of Rock and Metal’s history.
The quality of the featured material is excellent, ranging from reviews, band’s history, recommendations, ‘lost bands’ section, rare tracks, video guide / YouTube hidden gems, and a lot more.
Rock Candy Magazine issue 7 features Aerosmith as main article plenty of rare photos, plus Heart, Quiet Riot, Def Leppard, Triumph, Nelson, Jimmy Page, Fastway, Vinny Appice, Steve Vai, Strangeways, a complete story behind Hear n’ Aid, and more.
Rock Candy Magazine issue 8 main article is about KISS focused in the amazing story surrounding the legendary ‘solo albums’, plus Queensryche, John Corabi, Dream Theater, Aviator, Van Halen, Blue Oyster Cult, Night Ranger, King’s X, Richie Sambora, a complete story about the legendary Donington Festival, and more.
Rock Candy Magazine issue 9 features a great Queen / Freddie Mercury main story, plus Stryper, the making of Skid Row first album, Twisted Sister, Vivian Campbell, Hanoi Rocks, Judas Priest, Giuffria, Y&T and more.
All issues include as well a must-check Review section, recommendations, ‘lost bands’ section, rare tracks, video guide / YouTube hidden gems, and a lot more.
Besides the articles that I have mentioned, each issue has loads more interesting material on just about every hard rock or metal act from the Seventies and Eighties that you can remember — along with some that may have slipped your memory!
A couple more reasons that I highly recommend Rock Candy is that it has gorgeous graphic design and layout, and it is also profusely illustrated with fantastic photos of metal merchants back in the day and quite often in the present, as well.
Everything about it screams Rock, true Rock music.
