MAGAZINE ARCHIVE : KERRANG – 31.10.1985

It’s Halloween 1985, and Kerrang has Joe Perry and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith on the cover. I’m not making a joke about that.

Meanwhile, this issue comes from with a 32 by 23 poster of Ronnie James Dio.

In news, Dee Snider and Alice Cooper happily pose for a photo after bumping into each other at the studio when recording their respective albums.

In gig news, AC/DC will begin 1986 on a short UK tour, beginning at …… Whitley Bay Ice Rink.

Aerosmith, planning a big comeback, get a five page spread. They would later have chart success in 1986 with their collaboration with Run DMC, a rerecording of ‘Walk This Way’

In ads, there is a full page advert for John Parr’s album ‘Hotter Than Fire, Tougher Than Rock’ featuring the hit ‘St Elmo’s Fire’

It’s a very ad heavy issue, with Kerrang taking the opportunity to promote their own branded clothing such as t-shirts, vests and baseball caps. Trendy.
