Book Synopsis Let It Rock by : Neil Daniels

Book excerpt: This book is an unashamed celebration of the landmark album Slippery When Wet; Bon Jovi's most successful album to date, with sales of over 28 million copies since its 1986 release, and one of the most toe-tappingly gleeful albums to ever ring out from a pair of speakers. Everyone knows the rock classics 'Livin' On A Prayer' or 'You Give Love A Bad Name', but there isn't a bum track on the record. This is more than a 'making of' type book, because to put Slippery When Wet into context you need to understand what came before and after. It is also a handy fans' guide to the band's career with a track by track review, current thoughts on the album from top rock writers, plus bits and pieces that relate directly (or indirectly) to the legacy of a record which spent eight straight weeks at the top of the Billboard charts. The band, of course, are still with us and released an album in the spring of 2013 along with tour dates, which will heighten interest in the book. Their fan base is seriously loyal. Includes a foreword by former Kerrang! journalist and rock expert Paul Suter and an afterword by A&R supremo Derek Shulman (Simon Dupree And The Big Sound and Gentle Giant), who had the foresight to sign the band.
