UK Rock&Roll Magazine is the most widely read magazine rock’n’roll magazine on the planet. It combines coverage of the roots of rock’n’roll with in-depth coverage of what’s happening now in the wide, wild and wonderful world of rock’n’roll, from rockabilly to jive and swing, from British rock’n’roll to psychobilly and vintage R&B, and all points in-between.
…and we were so close! The new Covid variant has knocked the lifeblood of rock’n’roll, the live scene, back by a month, and those I speak to are bursting to get out there. One thing I’ve been asked a lot, which will help a lot of folks who want to get out gigging, is whether we will be starting up the monthly Gig Guide, one of the most popular parts of the magazine before Covid gripped us. The answer is ‘yes if we
can’. If it′s going to happen at all it will happen next month with a selection of August gigs to get to, so watch this space! What we DO have in the magazine this month will hopefully, satisfy in any case, and includes an interview with Adrian McKenna, author of a new book about Eddie Cochran and focussing on his last, tragic, UK tour. It′s amazing to think that an event in music from seven decades ago still holds such fascination and we think that shows the power of rock’n’roll. Rock On...Johnny Hop
