Summer is heating up and every August we light up a celebration of Woodstock, 1969's amazing festival. And one of the best ways to honor its iconic nature is famous music photographer Henry Diltz sharing his thoughts and images, before, during and after the event. Diltz documented the entire experience from set-up to aftermath. He even lost some film along the way. (Imagine what was captured in those images!)
That's not all. Def Leppard's singer Joe Elliott opens up to Goldmine about the magnitude of the band's new album while currently on a summer blockbuster tour. And Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones fills in all the details about the new Hulu series, Pistol, and what made him the perfect choice for the legendary band.
That's just a part of the issue. See full list of the issue's contents below.
