Fireworks Magazine Online - Issue 51

Fireworks Magazine offers another absolutely packed edition, as Issue 51 boasts a lengthy chat with Joey Tempest from the rejuvenated Europe - a chat so long, we put the full un-cut version up, right here on Rocktopia! We also talk with the legendary German guitar hero Michael Schenker about his Temple Of Rock tour, while another famed guitarist in the form of Steve Morse introduces us to the star studded outfit Flying Colors. We take a look back at the amazing career of Rory Gallagher in celebration of the re-releasing of his first six albums, and spend time with the successful rockers Shinedown.

We don't stop there, as Jack Blades tells us all about his new solo album, It Bites walk us through their new CD, as do Halestorm... not forgetting Accept, Lacuna Coil, Axel Rudi Pell and Lillian Axe! We also talk with Stuck Mojo and Fozzy guitarist Rich Ward, who, fresh from his departure from Adrenaline Mob now works with Walking With Kings. There's talk with hot young rockers H.E.A.T, a look back through the fascinating tale of Tom Galley's Phenomena project, the returning Trixter, The Treatment, Arjen Lucasson... it never ends, 33 interviews in total!

Of course, we also cover all latest albums, DVD's and books in 88 gorgeous glossy pages... AND we offer you a free CD containing 19 tracks. What more could you want?
