Welcome to what promises to be another terrific year for rock and metal – and rest assured we’ll be bringing you more of the hottest exclusives, sharpest reviews and big interviews.

2011 is already shaping up to be a classic with Europe (pictured) touring next month and arena shows already inked in for My Chemical Romance, Journey, Foreigner, Rush, Paul Rodgers and the mighty Iron Maiden!

We’re looking forward to new records from Mr Big, Whitesnake, Van Halen, Architects, Machine Head and Rush. And although we’re still in the grip of winter we can’t wait for festival fever to hit the UK again – with the Big Four’s Sonisphere slot an obvious treat to come. Stick with RUSHONROCK and get all the rock you need this year!
