It's been more than a year, but the new issue of Classic Rock celebrates the return of something special: proper, bang-to-rights live music. Download Festival successfully ran a government-sanctioned pilot event, while Orange Goblin were finally able to celebrate their 25th (26th now) anniversary in socially distanced gig style. We were there, and it was epic.
You can read about both shows in Classic Rock 291. And all things being well, our cover stars Judas Priest – the metal gods themselves – are readying themselves for a triumphant headline set at Bloodstock in August. Things are looking up. We’ll see you (safely) down the front!
Also in this issue: The Who, Elton John, Motorhead, Jim Capaldi, Perry Farrell, Stone Temple Pilots, Led Zeppelin, Styx and more...
