As we close out 2016, we look towards 2017, and what a year it will be if this list actually pans out!

The folks over at Ultimate Classic Rock put together a round-up of “2017 New Music Releases” from Classic Rock artists and it’s impressive to say the least!

Reissues will continue to be a focus of the genre too with return efforts from our very own Lynyrd Skynyrd, Black Sabbath, and even Bon Jovi.

Among the other projects on the list are solo efforts from Ratt’s Stephen Pearcy, Bad Company’s Simon Kirke, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, and others.
