Fireworks Magazine Keeps Rock Alive With Nikki Sixx Cover Story
June 27, 2011
Do you remember the late 80s and early 90s when magazines like Metal Edge in the USA and KERRANG! in the UK were a celebration of all things hair-metal, classic rock and glam before grunge came along and ruined the party for thousands of dedicated melodic rock fans? Well the guys over at Fireworks Magazine in the UK certainly do, and since the year 2000 have been dedicated to bringing you the best of everything melodic rock, covering hair-metal, AOR, classic rock, melodic metal, progressive rock and power-pop from all over the world.
Over the last 11 years the magazine has grown from a 56 page mainly black and white magazine to the full-colour 100 page extravaganza it is today, with almost every issue also having a free cover CD highlighting some of the best melodic rock music of the moment.
Last issue, the magazine secured an expanded distribution deal in the UK, and is now available at well over 400 retail outlets country-wide. Full details of shops selling the magazine can be found in the Fireworks section of their associated web-site, www.rocktopia.net. Here there is also a free, full copy of the magazine, allowing everyone to check out just what an amazing melodic rock bible this is.
Current issue #46 has a superb Nikki Sixx cover story, and also features interviews with giants of the genre like Journey, Def Leppard, Foreigner, Warrant, Night Ranger, Black County Communion, Nazareth, Status Quo and Whitesnake as well as many of the new, up and coming bands, along with an incredibly detailed reviews section.
So if you’re missing those magazines of your youth, NOW is the time to hitch a new ride with the one true heir to Metal Edge and KERRANG! of the 80s.
