9780957144286: Let It Rock: The Story Of Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet

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.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

However, PolyGram was not the only label interested in signing the New Jersey singer; Atlantic had head-hunted him too. Derek Shulman was adamant that PolyGram should sign JBJ and the band. Jon, his family and the rest of the band were impressed by Shulman's commitment. His background as a musician didn't hurt either. He had been the lead singer of 1960s British pop group Simon Dupree And The Big Sound and then formed prog rockers extraordinaire Gentle Giant. Shulman instinctively knew that JBJ was a global rock star in the making from the very first time they met. It was obvious from the start that it was JBJ's band, as Shulman attests: "Jon did in fact want to be signed as a solo artist with his band in tow. PolyGram ultimately signed all the players of the band but initially it was Jon's deal. Rightly so, as it was he who put everything together for the deal to happen… He absolutely knew he wanted this to be a rock band. He had already put this showcase band together and we both wanted the band to be a band not a solo rocker. He ultimately stuck with the group of musicians who performed at the Copacabana.” With a demo that was destined for cult status, a record deal and a band, JBJ's plan for world domination was in the making . JBJ had also gotten a name for his band; the rather unimaginative: Bon Jovi. Lots of names were thrown around but none of them seemed to stick. It was Derek Shulman who came up with the idea of shortening Jon's second name Bongiovi to Bon Jovi thus taking a leaf out of Van Halen's book. This meant that both Jon Bon Jovi and his band could be marketed more effectively with a catchy name. "I remember saying to him in 1983: 'Someday you'll be President of the United States of America,'” Shulman recalls. "He laughed, but with a glint in his eye. I still stand by that statement.”

The book is a large format that looks a bit like a tour programme, and adds to the overall appeal, as it allows for large images of memorabilia inside.
