Classic Rock 200 is a beast, a 244-page leviathan in gilded ink and shiny paper. It arrives with planet earth's newsagents in just two days.

This mammoth edition features brand new interviews with the rock's grand and good. It's an extraordinary mix, from Graham Bonnet to Robert John Godfrey, from Hank Marvin to Steve Harris, from Noddy Holder to Nick Mason. It it were any more full of interviews, it would be a chat show. A really, really good one.    

There's also shiny collector’s cover, complete with loads of band logos rendered in actual gold (warning: not actually rendered in actual gold), and a free CD made out of actual silver (warning: not actually made of actual silver), containing all sorts of monumental tracks from Classic Rock's lifetime.  

The 200th edition of Classic Rock bounds into your local rock paper vendor on July 16, but you can also pre-order this 244-page rockzilla online.
