I used to be 'Neil Young,' but I love digital these days! What a difference a year-and-a-bit can make. When we last encountered veteran glam-rockers Sweet on these pages in December 2019, they were in the midst of a UK tour and discussing the possibility of releasing their first album of new material after a..

They released their debut progressive metal concept..
Books of lyrics are nothing new, of course. Many rock wordsmiths have toyed with the format since the groundbreaking The Beatles' Illustrated Lyrics was published in 1969, with its remarkable cavalcade of colourful illustrations by the masterful Alan Aldridge. Bob Dylan has had the treatment, with his own drawings. Peter Hammill has put out a..
