editorial

Being born in the summer of 1970 I was rather too young to appreciate the 100 albums you lot have selected as the decade’s finest at the time of their original release. Truthfully, there’s a handful among them that I’ve still yet to hear. I shall, however, aim to rectify this appalling state of affairs before turning 49. A sincere thank you to everyone who took the time to vote. No doubt some heated arguments will have kicked off already.… Elsewhere in this issue we speak with Saxon’s Biff Byford, Alice Cooper, Sammy Hagar, Perry Farrell, Kyuss and more, we bring you an extensive review of June’s Download festival and you’ll also get to read about me getting punched in the face in Mississippi. Good times. Thanks for joining us on another…

quo roll on

STATUS QUO will release their 33rd album, Backbone, on September 6. The 11-track album was recorded at bandleader Francis Rossi’s home studio in Surrey in late 2018. It will be the first studio release to feature guitarist Richie Malone, who joined Quo following founder member Rick Parfitt’s death in 2016. “The music that became Backbone came out of the band coming out of the tour bubble, heading back into the studio and taking that energy that underscores a Quo concert and pouring into the creative process,” Rossi tells Planet Rock. “We’ve loved recording this and surprised ourselves with how naturally it all fell together. We’re excited for Planet Rock readers and listeners to hear this new record.” STATUS QUO’s Backbone is released through earMUSIC/Edel on September 6.
