Smith Journal #20
Smith Journal turns 20 on September 5. It might be our most metal issue yet.
There’s Spinal Tap’s Harry Shearer, for starters, who turns the volume up to 11 as he discusses his career and the life lessons he’s learned along the way.
Then there’s ex-Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins, who must be the most hardcore Agony Aunt in magazine history.
Led Zeppelin, Megadeath and Motörhead all make appearances, too – as does Rick Springfield – though you’ll have to wait to see how.
We also speak to some underwater lumberjacks, who take an already pretty metal profession and ratchet the extreme up a few notches, alongside stories on medieval sword-makers, modern-day plant poachers and Australia’s forgotten link to the U.S. Civil War.
