For the last few years Wilson has been working on a brand new edition of Classic Rock, completely revised. It was slated for publication before Christmas. Ken told UKClimbing.com,
" Classic Rock will not be out before Christmas I regret to say. It is proving far more arduous than I expected....or maybe I am just getting older and slower. I hope that climbers will consider it worth the wait, but, as you probably know, there is no guarantee of success in publishing. I would be grateful if we could discuss this after Christmas as I would like to be sure of my schedules before making any further public pronouncements."
If you want to whet your appetite for all things Classic Rock there are at least a couple of websites worth visiting.
