A Casual Guide To The Music Of Bryan Adams
 
Bryan Adams is one of the most successful Canadian singer-songwriters of all time. He rose to fame with his third album, 1983’s Cuts Like A Knife, before the release of his global breakthrough opus Reckless, which Adams celebrated in 2014 with the sold out 30th Anniversary Reckless Tour. His best known song remains ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It For You’ which was the lead song for the 1991 hit movie Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves. It also happens to be one of the best-selling singles in popular music history.
This book is about the music, from his self-titled debut album right up to recent studio releases, Room Service and 11.
From the author of the acclaimed Don’t Stop Believin’ – The Untold Story Of Journey and Electric World – A Casual Guide To The Music Of Journey’s Neal Schon, Reckless is the first book to exclusively explore the music of one of popular music’s great unsung heroes and Canada’s most famous rock export. The book explores his musical legacy and offers titbits of information and trivia about his various non-music projects but mostly this handy fans book is about the music of Bryan Adams.
 
Reckless is essential reading for Bryan Adams fans.

LET IT ROCK – THE MAKING OF BON JOVI’S SLIPPERY WHEN WET

Artist: 
LET IT ROCK – THE MAKING OF BON JOVI’S SLIPPERY WHEN WET
 
BY NEIL DANIELS
PUBLISHED BY SOUNDCHECK BOOKS
UK RELEASE DATE: MAY 27, 2014
PUBLISHED IN THE USA: JUNE 15, 2014
ISBN: 978-0-9571442-8-6
 
28 Million People Can’t Be Wrong
 
1986’s Slippery When Wet not only put Bon Jovi at the top of the rock tree, it went on to become one of the biggest selling albums ever, spending eight straight weeks at the top of the Billboard chart and going 12 x Platinum in the States, as well as No.1 in the UK.
Although some people won’t admit to liking the album, most of us have a copy somewhere and classics such as ‘Living On A Prayer’ and ‘Let It Rock’ are guaranteed to get folks singing.
 
Top rock writer, Neil Daniels, looks at not only how and why the album was made, but what preceded Slippery When Wet; what went after; a song-by-song analysis;  the Slippery When Wet tour (complete with tour dates) and more. He canvasses opinions from musicians who know the band, such as Dokken, Joe Lynn Turner and Jonathan Valen, plus top rock writers, such as Steve Rosen, Jason Ritchie and the Bailey Brothers, who all share their views.
 
Ex-Kerrang! writer Paul Suter provides a foreword, and ex-Gentle Giant frontman Derek Shulman, who signed the band to Polygram Records when he was senior vice-president of A&R there, writes the afterword. This is all topped off by some rare photos of the band at work and play.
 
Bon Jovi polarize opinion, but the band and album have an army of fans from mum’s and dad’s to followers of melodic rock and more, who will love this celebratory book.
