COVER STORY: STEVIE NICKS The ultimate rock diva on Fleetwood Mac fame, solo stardom, the “lost years” of addiction, and owning the stage, still, at 76. Plus! Mick Fleetwood offers a hymn to her… and a eulogy for his storied band?

STEVE ALBINI Gone before his time: the Big Black/Shellac mainman, uncompromising ‘recorder’ of bands, and one of the crucial shaping forces of modern alternative rock.

TOM WAITS How the beatnik bard found himself, on the road between Tijuana, San Diego and Los Angeles, and became ‘Tom Waits’ on The Heart Of Saturday Night.

WAR As a splinter of the funk juggernaut prepare to play Chaka Khan’s Meltdown festival, MOJO corrals all the factions. “We were raw and real,” they tell Lois Wilson.

IAN GILLAN From Hounslow to the Lake Geneva shoreline, Deep Purple’s air raid siren recounts a hard rock life. “You’ve got to get outside of a formula,” he tells Mark Blake.

LEAD BELLY From a new book exploding the myths around folk and blues trailblazer Huddie Ledbetter, 90 years since the landmark show that revealed him to the world.

NATHANIEL RATELIFF The testifying frontman and soul-scouring songwriter on his long, slow slog from penury to the playoffs, and the key role of the much-missed Richard Swift.

THE CHAMELEONS Chiming guitars? Check. Tormented singer? Check. Ornery attitude to ‘the biz’? Check. The unlikely renaissance of the Great Lost Overcoat Band of the ’80s.
