Issue Cover

Classic Pop  |  Classic Pop Presents: Prince  

This year we’ve already lost a plethora of talent from across the world of entertainment. But surely the loss of the iconic ‪Prince‬ must rank among the most significant. The artist who brought us ‪Purple Rain‬,‪ When Doves Cry‬, ‪Little Red Corvette‬ and a wide variety of other golden moments in pop has passed into the ether. In our latest Classic Pop Presents, we look back at the life and career of Prince. From his early beginnings in Minneapolis to the rise to superstardom in the 80′s to his later position as a reclusive, religious figure in the 2000s

We take a decade-by-decade look at the Prince story, as well as separate, brand-new features highlighting the many songs that Prince wrote for others (or had been covered by others) A dissection of the Prince’s many looks, a fascinating insight into the women that shaped Prince’s life and music and also we analyse the seminal Purple Rain album – a record that very much defined Prince’s entire career.

We’ve also collected the most emotive reactions to Prince’s passing, from the stars and cultural figures that were inspired by him – featuring high quality rare pictures from Prince at every stage in his career – in a variety of fabulous outfits

We’ve worked hard to bring you this heartfelt tribute to one of pop music’s brightest stars that dimmed too soon.

We sincerely hope you enjoy the issue

About time - a mag for great pop music that treats us like grown-ups. Brilliant. Loads in there from bands like Depeche Mode, Human League, The Smiths and 90s stuff too.
   Stunning tribute to George Reviewed 21 January 2017
Wow. Just opened my new issue of Classic Pop and there's so much inside. I'm a lifelong George Michael and Wham! fan so I was blown away by the features devoted to George. Solo stuff, Wham! stuff - all the albums, singles and videos. So much better than the other mags out there.
