Current Issue

Paul Burlison was a rockabilly pioneer who inspired the Beatles, Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin, and other superstars. Enjoy our look at his blackguard Tele! We also talk to Rick Vito about his latest album, which mixes blues, soul, and R&B in his unrivaled style, and Fantastic Negrito reveals the story behind his modern blues expressionism.
More new-music discussion happens with Los Straitjackets’ Eddie Angel, Molly Tuttle, Paul Richards, and Australian punk-rockers The Chats. We take a behind-the-scenes look at the new collection of songs by the late J.J. Cale and chat with guitar legends Bob Spalding and Bobby Ingano. Our reader-favorite instrument/amp profiles dig into the Cort Model X and Selmer Taurus 60.
“Pop ’N Hiss” revisits the classic country picking of Jimmy Bryant’s Country Cabin Jazz. We do our annual Dad’s Day photo tribute, then share our thoughts on the latest VG Approved Gear and best new music in the “Hit List.” It’s all in the August issue, available now!
