howard leese actionTaking centre stage in the next seven days is the man who transformed Heart into one of the biggest hitting bands of the late 80s – a true rushonrock hero in the shape of Howard Leese.

Now a fully fledged member of Bad Company and a long-time touring partner of Paul Rodgers, the multi-talented instrumentalist has just released one of the records of the year in the shape of his aptly titled solo debut Secret Weapon. And we’ve got a two-part exclusive interview coming right up.

But if you’re looking for a truly emotional trip down memory lane then we focus on the long lost Mayfair in the week that Tygers Of Pan Tang play the latest reunion show at Newcastle’s o2 Academy. Expect a few tears and plenty of cheers.

There’s the much anticipated return of Self Made Man following his self-imposed French exile and all the latest news, views and reviews. Plus we edge one step closer to the Top 20 as Guns N Roses make their debut on The Vinyl Countdown! As usual – if you love rock don’t go anywhere else this week.
