It's a secret we've kept for some time now, but Clash can finally reveal that Sir Elton John is set to become our first ever Guest Editor.
In time for the March 2014 issue, the legendary songwriter is to take control of the magazine, becoming deeply involved with the suggestions and selections of content.
Opening with an insightful and heartfelt Editor's Letter, the March issue's cover story traces the path of Elton's classic 1973 album, 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road'.
Celebrating the record's 40th anniversary, Clash goes behind the scenes to chat with all of its surviving contributors: guitarist Davey Johnstone, drummer Nigel Olsson, percussionist Ray Cooper, writer Bernie Taupin, and of course Elton himself.
Keen to keep moving forwards, Elton also joins Clash for a fresh discussion on contemporary music and the industry itself.
A fashion special, Elton allowed the Clash team extremely rare access to his private storage facility, to shoot incredibly detailed photographs of his imaginative, iconic '70s stage costumes. Spread across six pages, this shoot is accompanied by an interview with Annie Reavey, one of Elton's original costume designers.
Full information about this special issue will be revealed closer to the launch date.
The March issue of Clash will be on sale from February 6th.
