June issue of Rhythm on sale now
This month we delve into the genius of Cozy Powell. We look back at the Brit drumming icon’s career, from rock classics with Rainbow to solo superstardom. Cozy’s playing defined rock drumming, his sound was unmistakable and his solos unmissable. Eighteen after his passing, we celebrate the life of the music of the man who danced with the devil.
We have a packed features section this month. Brit drummer Paul Jones talks to us about performing live beats with drum’n’bass gurus Sigma, Steve Barney charts his incredible journey as a session star and Luke Holland shares advice for online domination.
Plus, Fay Milton lets us in on the world dominating Savages, Derrick Wright talks playing with the world’s top solo star, Adele, and Sean Moore looks back on decades of hits with Manic Street Preachers.
And that's not all, we also present the top ten best jazz cymbals that money can buy.
