In the future, when we look back at 80s hardrock in America, we will think of: spandex, big curly hair, fancy jackets, shoulder pads and muscle cars which eventually leads to: BON JOVI !!
1986's Slippery When Wet is one of, if not the biggest hit of this decadent generation, a tried and true: all killers - no fillers !
The production and the incendiary hooks, all topped with 3-4-5 massive radio hits that are still played today on regular rotation, all from the creative duo of Jon/Richie, made them a hit-factory for decades to come.
Hardrock's poster-boys had to come out strong, against rival European arena-rock-titans DEF LEPPARD, SCORPIONS and WHITESNAKE ...yet the New-Jersey crew did give 'em a run for their money ...besides 12 million+ sales cannot be denied.
Although wanted dead or alive and wild in the streets, still a social disease, they did raise their hands and gave love a bad name !
