So Slash releases his long-awaited solo album this week and we can’t wait to check out the Classic Rock Mag fan pack out on Wednesday – we urge you to do the same!

Also this week we’ll be casting a critical eye over two bands at the opposite ends of the career spectrum as veteran arena rockers Bad Company and bright young upstarts Airbourne are reviewed and rated.

And talking of all things Airbourne there’s an exclusive interview with the band’s rhythm guitarist Roadsy. We catch up with former Thunder man Luke Morley as The Union guitarist becomes the latest rock celeb to get the rushonrock Rider treatment.

And there’s some rare DVD action as the new films from Frank Turner and Suicidal Tendencies fall under the spotlight. AC/DC hit 12@12 and there’s more! Bloggers Self Made Man and Rock O’ The North go head to head and we bring you all the latest news and views from the fast changing worlds of rock and metal. It’s right here, right now. Enjoy.
