The month of October has always been an important one for ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE. It's the month that we roll out our KICKING AX list but this year, we are coupling it with our FRONT & CENTER list which highlights our publication's favorite front men in rock. For the better part of rock n roll's illustrious history, the music has always benefited from the kinetic energy created between a lead singer and a guitar player. Look at MICK JAGGER and KEITH RICHARDS. Consider ROBERT PLANT and JIMMY PAGE. Or how about ANN and NANCY WILSON? We could go on and on. Sure, the decision to combine both features in one massive issue was due to the fact that ROCKWIRED chose to hold back on our September issue, but form a pure rock n roll stand point, combining a feature on front men with a feature on guitarists seems to make all of the sense in the world. This year's FRONT & CENTER list heavily compliments the list of guitarists in the KICKING AX feature and according to editor-in-chief BRIAN LUSH, it's one of life's happy little accidents. " There is a lot of cross-pollination between the two lists. " says LUSH "But that speaks tot eh chemistry generated by these bands. It's that very chemistry that keeps rock n roll going despite all the times that someone like GENE SIMMONS has declared it dead."
The October issue of ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE will be released October 2, 2017 exclusively through ROCKWIRED.COM.
