FRIDAY NIGHTS with EUROPE the BAND – FAVORITE ALBUMS

In 1973-74 I bought a compilation album with artists such as T.Rex, Slade, Sweet, Mud etc., and one of the pictures on the album was this strange looking dude who was David Bowie. I just had to find out what this guy sounded like so when I got home I put on “Jean Genie” and was immediately sold. 
This guy had the coolest voice I’ve ever heard, so I bought the “Aladdin Sane” album and was totally blown away! 
Rest in Peace, David, you were really one of a kind. /John Norum

Favorite Albums - Bad Reputation frontpage

FRIDAY NIGHTS with EUROPE the BAND – FAVORITE ALBUMS

“Yes, folks, it’s “Bad Reputation” by Thin Lizzy. One of the best original rock bands of all time, no discussion needed. Back in 1977 Tony Reno (or original drummer) asked if I wanted to go and see Thin Lizzy at Gröna Lund in Stockholm and I didn’t really know much about them, except that Tony’s brother had played me a couple of songs from the “Jailbreak” album which I thought sounded really good, so along we went. I will never forget the excitement when they started the intro to “Soldier of Fortune”, it just sounded amazing and to hear those songs live for the first time as such a young age was an incredible experience. Phil Lynott’s stage presence and unique voice just totally blew me away (RIP, Phil). So if you haven’t heard “Bad Reputation” yet, go and get it now!” /John Norum
