Johnny Lima
Livin' Out Loud
Style: Hard Rock
Release date: May 4th 2009

It is with great pleasure that we see the return of Johnny Lima. Johnny has been keeping himself busy the last few years with family and working as a producer for some big names in the rock scene Dirty Penny, Miss Crazy & the brilliant new supergroup Freakshow (A group featuring Frankie Banali from Quiet Riot and Jeff Labar from Cinderella). Now the time has come for Johnny to let loose the great "Livin' Out Loud" on the unexpecting public. To put it simple, this is bad ass Hard/Glam Rock played the way it was in the day but with today’s production. If you like bands like Slaughter, Motley Crue, Tesla, Def Leppard & even Bon Jovi this is a must for you. Johnny sounds a little like Jon Bon Jovi in some of the songs, but not as much as he used to. Johnny has a more rougher edge to his vocals on "Livin Out Loud"

"Livin Out Loud is packed full of great hooks & melodies that will remain with you for days. I can't pick out any one good song because they all fucking rock your ass off. Johnny Lima is not doing anything new on "Livn' Out Loud" but he knows what it takes to make a great sounding album. So grab the car keys, put "Livin Out Loud" in the cd player and just cruise!!

Bottom Line: A great hard rock album full of great hooks and melodies. Highly Recommended.
