As we edge closer to GI issue 50, as well as wondering where the time went (!), we are slowly managing to catch-up with the guitar heroes we set out to track down when the mag was born. This issue it's the turn of Andy Timmons, who has been elusive but always near the top of our 'wants' list. This is an interview you definitely won't want to miss!
Meanwhile, some players are on their second time around with us - take the late Randy Rhoads, for example. Rhoads has been such a hugely important influence since he burst onto the scene with Ozzy Osbourne, that I make absolutely no apologies for featuring him again, particularly as this time around we've been able to prize Jamie Humphries away from his incessant touring commitments for long enough to write and record for us an exclusive Randy Rhoads tech session. Don't miss it!
Our competition prize is one of the brand new Shergold guitars - a much loved UK brand that faded away in the 1980s but has returned with a bang, courtesy of a thorough makeover by top luthier Patrick James Eggle. Make sure you read Tom Quayle's review in this issue and don't forget to enter!
As I often say, please let us know which artists and what gear you'd like us to feature. Every email is read and taken notice of!
