BON JOVI – This House Is Not For Sale (Album Review)

BON JOVI – This House Is Not For Sale (Album Review)

Let me start off by saying that I’ve been a huge Bon Jovi fan since the 80’s. A big reason for that is that I think Richie Sambora is one of the most underrated guitarists. But even with no Sambora on their newest CD, This House Is Not For Sale, I was hoping that Bon Jovi would put out a great CD. Jon Bon Jovi is calling this CD the start of a new chapter of…

STEVEN TYLER – We’re All Somebody From Somewhere

STEVEN TYLER – We’re All Somebody From Somewhere

Let me start by saying that I’m a huge Aerosmith fan. In my mind, there is no better singer/front man than Steven Tyler. But, when the singer of one of the best hard rock bands of all time announces that he’s putting out a solo country CD, that vein in my forehead starts vibrating like you wouldn’t believe. Now, to be fair, I had the same reaction when Bon Jovi (another one of my favorites)…

Richie Sambora – Stranger In This Town (Retro Album Review)

Have you ever listened to a CD  and cast it off as “just ok?” Then, you come across one of the songs a little while later and it changes the whole outlook of the CD.

I first got it after hearing the single “Ballad of Youth.” I was a Bon Jovi fan and figured…

I was starting to discover bands like Scorpions, Metallica and a whole range of harder bands that would fill up my tape collection (this was before I had a CD player). One band that I didn’t hear about, but falls right into the music that consuming my life is German heavy metal…
