Sometimes it snows in April...
On Thursday, 21 April 2016, just as we were completing the final pages for this month’s issue of Q, the death of Prince was announced. The world had lost a rare individual, a unique artist and global icon.
Presses were quickly stopped, our cover changed and the Q logo went a respectful purple as the editorial team worked overtime to turn our new edition into a celebration of the life and music of this truly great creator and innovator.
Mixing new insights, a dip into Q’s archive and iconic photography, this month we pay tribute to a purple reign cut cruelly short with a special edition that revels the funk maestro's singular genius and inspirational music.
Also in Q360
This month Q boasts an audience with Captain Rock, AKA Richard Ashcroft, as he relives a life of madness, music and redemption, we speak to Michael Kiwanuka as he prepares to release his brilliant new album and we get the inside track on The Stone Roses’ progress in the studio (yes, there’s a new record on the way... fingers crossed)!
Natasha Khan reveals the songs that transformed her into Bat For Lashes, while Years & Years fend off readers’ questions and the dark side of the force in this month's Cash For Questions.
Catfish And The Bottlemen strap in for life in the fast line of anthemic indie rock, Super Furry Animals’ Gruff Rhys wades into the Brexit debate in tuneful fashion, while post-rock “pisstakers” Mogwai are this month’s Q Mavericks.
We get a Weezer-eye view of the world as Q spends time with Rivers and co, Garbage’s Shirley Manson delivers her 10 Commandments for life and we give the Last Word to Alison Mosshart from The Kills.
