This month's issue features a tribute to Slayer's Jeff Hanneman, who influenced a generation of guitarists and changed the course of metal forever. Guitar World presents the complete, untold story of the late Slayer guitarist, who was behind such legendary thrash anthems as "Angels of Death," "South of Heaven" and "War Ensemble."

The August issue also includes Joe Bonamassa, who, on the heels of his London retrospective, shows talks about his busy career, his new album with singer Beth Hart and his ongoing love affair with the ultimate blues electric guitar, the Gibson Les Paul "Burst."

Also, on Ready to Die, Iggy Pop and James Williamson fire up a scathing indictment of a world gone horribly wrong. The godfather of punk talks to Guitar World about making Iggy and the Stooges' first new studio album in 40 years.

Plus, guitar virtuoso Steve Morse keeps Deep Purple alive and pumping on stages around the world. He discusses their new studio album, Now What?!
