In our latest issue, to mark the 40th anniversary of his untimely passing, we round up some of Billy Fury’s contemporaries and biggest fans to pay a very special in-depth tribute to this icon of British rock’n’roll.

We also have must-read interviews with Carol Kaye and Jack Rabbit Slim’s Bob Butfoy who exclusively announces his band’s comeback plans as he reveals how he’s battled back from recent health problems.

Elsewhere, we gaze into our crystal ball to check out what’s on the musical horizon for 2023 in Vintage Rock’s annual ‘Year Ahead’ feature. We also look at how Ed Sullivan’s TV show introduced many of biggest names in 50s and 60s music to the American public and profile inimitable homegrown rockin’ hero Johnny Kidd.

Our classic album is Ruth Brown’s superb Rock & Roll and we also count down our 20 favourite one-hit wonders.
