Our new issue, Vintage Rock Presents The Brits of Rock’n’Roll, is out now!

In this issue, we’re celebrating Britain’s contribution to the rock’n’roll revolution, telling the stories of some of the genre’s less celebrated artists, from Wee Willie Harris and Chas McDevitt to Dickie Pride and Johnny Kidd, while shining a spotlight on many of the era’s most seismic names – Cliff Richard to Matt Monro, Lonnie Donegan to Billy Fury and Marty Wilde.

We’re also counting down the Top 20 British rock’n’roll movies, and taking a trip into 1950s Soho, the seedy birthplace of so many iconic rock’n’roll acts. We also have features on The Beatles’ early days in Hamburg, Germany, and reflect on the genius that was recording pioneer Joe Meek.

As you’ll see in these pages, British rock’n’roll didn’t start with The Beatles, and it wasn’t just American-accented acts that helped inform the sound of John, Paul, George and Ringo. So strap in and let us take you on a journey back in time, to the 1950s and the first stirrings of rock’n’roll in good old Blighty.
