Classic Rock Issue 300 (May 2022) Issue 300: The Ultimate Celebration
The 300th edition of Classic Rock features new interviews with Jimmy Page, Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick, Heart & Halestorm, Geddy Lee, Metallica, Brian May, Genesis, Iron Maiden and many more
Nearly a quarter of a century ago, a motley crew of rock writers had a crazy idea to launch a magazine that really celebrated and explored the music that they loved.
There was no other magazine in town that did just that, so in true Field Of Dreams ‘build it and they will come’ fashion, Classic Rock arrived kicking and screaming into the world.
Many of that original launch team – and the folk who built the mag up throughout its lifetime – are still very much involved in the magazine, and this month we celebrate a real milestone with the publication of our 300th issue.
The issue is filled with new interviews with high-voltage rock’n’roll’s finest. Many – like many of our contributors and readers – have been with us since the get-go, and others – again, like contributors and readers – have joined us along the way. Whether established legend or up-and-comer, they look back at what they were up to in ’98, what they’ve been up to since, and discuss the state of rock’n’roll today.
Classic Rock Hits 300!
