My overwhelming memory of the Eagles is getting the chance, back in 2007, to witness them play a very intimate gig at the IndigO2 in London to celebrate the release of their last studio album, Long Road Out Of Eden. It was hard not to be struck by just how many of their songs you knew – even if you didn’t actually realise you knew them, so intrinsic is their music to classic rock. As you’ll read in our exclusive interview with Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B Schmit, they were one of the founding fathers of the genre of music that this magazine is named after. After Glenn Frey’s unexpected death two years ago, we didn’t think we’d see the Eagles play again. And, for a good deal of…

this month’s contributors

DAVE EVERLEY This month we managed to keep Diamond Dave Everley living out of a suitcase. First we dispatched him to NYC to hang out with the Eagles for our cover story (p26). Then while he was out there we stuck him on a plane to the other coast for a forthcoming (top secret) feature on one of the most exciting bands of recent times. But you’ll have to wait for that one. ROBBY KLEIN Robby is an entertainment photographer from New Orleans and is currently based in Nashville. This month we snagged him to take our shots of Black Stone Cherry, The Cadillac Three and Monster Truck (p72). He can often be found surfing in LA or eating bagels in NYC. Robby travels the world with his camera, and family, telling the…

Geoff Emerick December 5, 1945 – October 2, 2018 A hugely significant component in The Beatles’ success, as right-hand man to producer George Martin, Geoff Emerick was the studio engineer on the band’s early hits and later albums from 1966 to ’69. After the Beatles broke up, Emerick moved to America and collaborated with artists including Jeff Beck, Cheap Trick, Kate Bush, Elvis Costello, Art Garfunkel, Split Enz and Ultravox, winning four Grammys along the way.

marty balin

A KEY FIGURE in the San Francisco flower-power era, Marty Balin was a founder of and a singer and songwriter with Jefferson Airplane, and also a lynchpin of that band’s successor, Jefferson Starship. With roots in Eastern Europe, Balin was born Martyn Jerel Buchwald in Cincinnati. After moving with his family to California when he was four, and eventually changing his name, he began a solo career. However, it was with Jefferson Airplane, whose frontline he shared with lead vocalist Grace Slick and rhythm guitarist Paul Kantner, that Balin really made waves, including spots at the Monterey Pop Festival, Altamont and Woodstock. He quit Airplane in 1971, explaining that “the chemicals made [some] people [in the band] crazy and very selfish”, then joined Slick and Kantner in Jefferson Starship in 1975 and…

otis rush

A PIONEER OF the Chicago blues scene, guitarist/singer Otis Rush enjoyed a recording career that spanned more than six decades. Born near Philadelphia, he was a self-taught musician from the age of eight, and played his instrument lefthanded and upside down. He moved to Chicago in 1949 and found work in the local steel mills and stockyards and as a truck driver, and pursued music as a vocation after attending a Muddy Waters concert. He developed a style of guitar playing based on jazz foundations, which he embellished with an impassioned tenor voice. Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Peter Green and Carlos Santana are among those who cited him as an influence on their own technique. His first single, a version of the Willie Dixon-penned I Can’t Quit You Baby, put him on…
