In this week’s NME, on sale Wednesday 8 December…

30 years on since John Lennon was tragically murdered, we look back at the original rock n roll star. There’s exclusive interviews with Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon, a dissection of a genius, and a look at the wild side of a man who raged against everything, and changed the world in the process…

We’ve also got features on Frank Turner (who tells us about going to school with Prince William), British Sea Power (who tell us a pervy story about Prince Charles), and the coolest ten-year old in the world, the hair whipping Willow Smith (who should be Queen)..

Heard of Brother yet? Well, you soon will, Especially if you check out our feature on the Slough lads aiming to be the biggest band in the world..

Elsehwere, we’ve got interviews with The Drums, Best Coast, Mystery Jets, Joy Formidable, Metronomy and Brett Anderson, plus we review the new film about Lemmy from Motorhead, and declare the opening of voting for the NME Awards 2011.

It’s a jam-packed NME as ever, so buy one and eat it up with your eyes for a week’s worth of sustenance for your withered soul.
