NME celebrates 60 years with special collectors’ edition

This week's collectors edition features eight different covers including Noel and Liam Gallagher, Arctic Monkeys, Patti Smith, The Killers and Manic Street Preachers

NME celebrates 60 years as the world’s greatest music magazine this week with a bumper birthday issue.

We’re celebrating with eight iconic covers featuring the biggest stars of our history – including Noel and Liam Gallagher, Arctic Monkeys, Patti Smith, John Lydon, Manic Street Preachers, The Killers and Paul Weller.

Inside, all eight cover stars reflect on their relationship with NME over the last 60 years – the high times, low times and all the hilarious moments.

Plus – there’s a free copy of the very first issue of NME from March 1952 as well as interviews with Kasabian, Green Day, Biffy Clyro and Beth Ditto talking through their favourite ever NME covers.

Watch a raft of artists from Bat For Lashes, The Futureheads, Kate Nash, Gallows, Charli XCX, Major Lazer and more wish us a happy 60th birthday in the video below.

You can pick up this very special edition of the magazine on newsstands from tomorrow (September 26), or digitally now. Meanwhile, to snap up one of 60 complete bundles of our #NME60 birthday issue collectors’ covers, click here.
