  • Jethro Tull
  • Fastway
  • Unisonic
  • UFO
  • Deep Purple
  • Helloween
  • Motorhead

This month Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson talks about touring Thick As A Brick 1 & 2, what he’d like to do to noisy audience members and what it’s like having the world’s most famous Zombie slayer as a son-in-law.

‘Fast’ Eddie Clarke talks about Fastway’s latest album Eat Dog Eat, the Motorhead years and what he thinks of pretentious Rock bands.

Kai Hansen and Michael Kiske have worked together many times since their days in Helloween and their new project Unisonic looks set to be one of their most fruitful. They talk about the new stuff, the old times and the day two members of the audience were killed at the Castle Donington Monster’s Of Rock Festival in 1988.

Finally long-standing UFO keyboardist and guitarist Paul Raymond talks about their latest album Seven Deadly and looks back through his time with the band and what lies ahead for one of our most influential rock bands.

Music comes from all the above and there’s a brief news and new release roundup too!

Ronnie Montrose's note entitled Words Of Musical Expression From Ronnie.

"Music is one of the most powerful and precious gifts we all share.

"The best that any of us can do is try to connect with the core of what it is that drives us to express ourselves through any creative medium we choose, and bring as much of ourselves as we can to that process.

"I have chosen playing guitar and composing music (or have they chosen me? ) as my principal means of creative expression. For me, the work of refining that process is always ongoing.

"My wish is that you find all of the pleasure and joy in listening to this music that I found in creating it.

"My deepest gratitude to the incredible gifted and talented musicians who helped me to bring this music to you. Ronnie.
