I can’t tell you how many times I hear from friends and listeners, “It’s too bad they don’t make music like they used to.”
This is Day 3 of my “New Rotations: Albums” list! These are albums that are still in my listening rotation beyond what I would consider to be a normal run on my music player. They are post influence forming, but are awesome nonetheless! They should have been deleted long ago to make room for other music, yet I like them so much, I break my own rules for this music.
Well, some bands actually still do.
One in particular is Vandenberg’s MoonKings. Everything is here just like it used to be back in the 70s, 80s, and 90s!
There’s searing guitar solos!
Power ballads that don’t make you cringe!
Classic rock riffs!
A big huge sound!
Every track is solid.
And it should be because lead guitarist Adrian Vandenberg used to be with Whitesnake when they were in their prime. He’s the dude playing the guitar solo on “Here I Go Again!” A medical situation kept him from taking the band higher.
But I don’t think about the old days. I think about right now:
If Classic Rock stations actually played new Classic Rock, everyone would know Vandenberg’s MoonKings!
This is a Philby Award winner!
Here’s a Philby Award winning Hot Song of 2017, “Lust and Lies”:
This album ROCKS!
Stay tuned for album four…
