Lost in music

ONE OF THE MOST WELL-CONNECTED MEN IN THE MUSIC BIZ, GARY CROWLEY RAIDS HIS PHOTO ARCHIVE TO LOOK BACK ON SOME OF HIS PERSONAL HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE 80s…

MASTER BLASTER

“This baby (my Magic Box ghetto blaster) was my pride and joy back in the first half of the 80s. It was made by our friend Ron West who also made one for Malcolm McLaren for his Duck Rock album cover. It literally came everywhere with me and escorted me around the country when I was the DJ/warm-up man on the Wham! Club Fantastic tour. George and Andrew and Pepsi & Shirley were absolutely fascinated by it and it was used to great effect on the tour bus, blasting out everyone’s latest mixtapes.”

About Classic Pop

Issue 50 of Classic Pop is on sale now! For our 50th issue, we had to come up with something very special – and we certainly have… our cover stars this month are The Specials, hot on the heels of the release of their superb chart-topping album, Encore. Our must-read interview with the band delves into their remarkable comeback and the story behind their superb new record. We also catch up with the iconic Gloria Estefan who tells us how she brought Latin grooves to the world and Bonnie Tyler talks us through her new studio album, which features a hotly-anticipated duet with Sir Rod Stewart. 30 years on, we celebrate New Order’s Technique in our latest Classic Album feature and we also serve up a buyer’s guide to the blue-eyed soul of Simply Red. As Wet Wet Wet face the future without Marti Pellow, we meet the band as they embark on a fresh chapter with new frontman, The Voice winner Kevin Simm. Our packed new album reviews section features the wonderful return of Chaka Khan plus Dido, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Paul Weller. On the reissues front, we check out a must-have 10-CD Heaven 17 boxset plus re-releases from David Bowie, Sparks, Erasure and more. In our live reviews section, we elbow our way down to the front for Gary Numan and Echo & The Bunnymen at the Rockaway Beach Festival plus gigs by Chrvches and The Christians. Enjoy the issue!
