Black 'n Blue was a very productive band in the middle of the 80's. The self
titled debut 1984 and one new album every year until 1987. Jamie St. James on
vocals and the very talented guitarist Thommy Thayer (later replacement for Ace
Frehley in KISS) as the most known members had a megahit with "Hold On To 18".
They toured worldwide relentlessly with KISS, Aerosmith, Queensryche among other
How has the band aged until 2011?? Well they started to make this record
in 2003, but took a break until 2008 because vocalist Jamie St. James joined Warrent
So the answer to my own question is: Good rock 'n roll is just like wine. Let it
take the time to rise tasty and spice it with a light touch of vanilla. This is
pure and clean american rock 'n roll. If you like Aerosmith, Warrent or Tesla
you'll find this enjoyable.
All the 13 tracks on Hell Yeah is really good production. I
belive that many american rock radiostations will play several of the songs from
this party album. Good uptempo songs straight through is a good base for the (hopefully)
song (Hell Yeah) will be a great livetrack with big singalong opportunities.
My favourite songs is: "Target", "Fools Bleed", "Falling Down", "Hell Yeah" and
The album is produced by Jef "Woop" Warner.
