With Classic Rock's mammoth 200th issue currently buckling newsagents' shelves up and down the nation, it seemed appropriate to seek the opinions of some of those who've helped fill pages over the 16 years of the magazine's life.

Those kind enough to say gracious things about the magazine include Slash, Kiss, Saxon's Biff Byford, Kiss manager Doc McGhee, Motorhead's Mikkey Dee, Lars Ulrich, Joe Elliott and Steel Panther.

If your newsagent isn't selling issue 200 of Classic Rock, you can order it online from MyFavouriteMagazines

Alternatively, you can download the Classic Rock magazine app from iTunes. 

Special Offer: to celebrate 200 issues of Classic Rock, we're offering a year's subscription for just £26, which works out at just 200 pence per issue, delivered right to your door.
