Watching Roger Waters’ spectacular Us + Them show in London’s Hyde Park on July 6 last year one could not help but marvel at the incandescent fury of the (then) 74-year-old’s production. Weren’t Pink Floyd supposed to be out-of-touch hippies when punk emerged in the nation’s capital in ’76/’77? All these years later, no rock artist is delivering a show with such bite, venom and relevance. In this issue’s cover story, Mark Blake and David Fricke delve into the roots of the rage and rivalries which fuelled the band in the wake of the success of The Dark Side Of The Moon and illuminate the respective journeys of Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason since the band’s dissolution. It’s a fascinating tale. Elsewhere in the issue, we’ve a hilarious trip…

PHIL CAMPBELL is to release his debut solo album in October. Two years in the making, Old Lions Still Roar sees the former Motörhead guitarist joined by a host of guest collaborators, from Alice Cooper, Rob Halford and Dee Snider, through to Joe Satriani, Mötley Crüe’s Mick Mars, ex-Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn and Level 42 frontman and bassist Mark King. “I recorded it for myself primarily,” Campbell admits to Planet Rock, “to get it out of my system. It’s something I thought about years and years ago, when I was in Motörhead, and Lem always said, ‘You should go for it.’ I owe a debt of thanks to everyone who believed enough in me to make it happen.” Largely recorded in Campbell’s own studio in South Wales, and produced by his son…
