From interviews with the now-BAFTA-award-winning Andy Serkis, to having the honour of featuring Ralph Lauren’s extraordinary collection in collaboration with Morehouse College, stories on Duran Duran, Howlin Wolf’ and a feature of the greatest guitarists of all time and an homage to the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak on its 50th anniversary. If music be the food of love then this issue will have you stuffed and swooning, as music is the theme that binds this issue together.
