ROCK CANDY MAGAZINE – Issue 10
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 10 features GUNS N’ ROSES as main article – 16 power–packed pages charting the early days of the band’s rise from the Hollywood gutter, plenty of rare photos.
Also LYNYRD SKYNYRD back to their golden age, and the wildest on-the-road story ever written, a complete revival of DAY ON THE GREEN (America’s biggest party), and WARRANT; The inside story on the making of ‘Cherry Pie’.
We find alticles with TED NUGENT, POISON, BAD COMPANY, DORO PESCH, ZZ TOP’S BILLY GIBBONS, KIX, STEVE STEVEN’S ATOMIC PLAYBOYS, RUSH, WINGER, SAGA, 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.
