THIS MONTH MOJO commemorates the 50th Anniversary of Jimi Hendrix’s musical revolution with an exclusive step inside his studio realm – courtesy of his closest sonic confidant – and a celebration of the 27 songs that landmarked his too-short life. Our covermount CD is also Jimi-themed: Kiss The Sky is a 15-track trek from the blues to the stars and beyond. Also in the issue: The Clash take punk to the provinces in spring ’77; Roger Waters picks a fight; Dan Auerbach says The Black Keys will have to wait; The Selecter relive their 2-Tone travails. Plus: Father John Misty trips out; Depeche Mode go live; Steve Earle by his own hand; OK Computer rebooted; Warren Zevon reassessed; And: U2; Scott Walker; Oumou Sangare; The National; Kraftwerk; Ride; farewell, Chris Cornell, Gregg Allman, Saxa; Dylan at Newport ’63. And finally: how John Lennon freed John Sinclair with a bagful of drugs.
