Not a week goes by at Classic Rock HQ without someone – usually me, if we’re naming names – asking: how can it possibly be XX years since XX album was release?!

So this issue, as Queen + Adam Lambert begin their monster US tour, we’re venturing back to the mid- 70s to take a look at the making of that album, the record that gave the world the stone-cold classics We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions. We also stick around in the 70s and take you back to 1975 to revisit Led Zeppelin, when they…

The stand-off comes just months after Journey were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. A growing tension with Cain’s wife, Paula White-Cain, a minister who delivered the invocation at Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration, has prompted a series of provocative Tweets from Schon. “[The…
