Rock Candy Magazine.

Really Malc? I liked the Planet Rock one, some good articles...but a bit of a tired format having a very similar feel to Classic Rock. I mentioned in the shoutbox it's only a fiver compared to CR's 6.99 (is it?) and I can do without the free CD in CR so the price makes it a little more appealing - but I'm with you I'll pick and choose and see what tickles my fancy on any given month. Although I like to see a good proliferation of rock magazines I don't really hold an allegiance to any particular title, it's all about having a choice.

The old Kerrang was bigger than life.


Yes, I mention the impact of Kerrang! in a small way in an upcoming review. For me, Kerrang! was my connection to real rock (with Sounds) and the UK which I always believed to be the epicenter of my music. Those early 80's issues were indispensable and they had the balls to put Fish on a cover when no one else would.


My first Kerrang, had Manowar on the cover, issue 46 or something.......I sometimes look at the present issues, bit like the paper it's printed on.....throwaway....

Looked through Planet Rock today and can't help but wonder if they didn't miscalculate how the Classic Rock demise would go.

For me it's like reading the same magazine, although PR is more like the way CR was 6 or 7 years ago. At least the reviews are much more rock and metal based than Classic Rock's tend to be these days.

Wasn't tempted to buy it but will keep flicking through it to see how it develops.
