Rants and recollections from the Rock Candy writers’ team

The Rock Candy Mag blog is where you get a regular dose of rock’n’roll rambling on whatever our writer of the week wants to get off his (or her) chest. Malcolm Dome will surely make mention of London’s messiest late night ’80s drinking dens. Paul Suter might want to regale you with tales of obscure Canadian bands you shouldn’t have missed first time around. HoJo will doubtless remember the day he was kidnapped, chained up and made up in the Kerrang! office by Wrathchild. Who knows? Derek Oliver might even reveal the real reason why he’s known as ‘Sausage’!

But whatever the topic of conversation, we guarantee you won’t be bored!

Got a question?
