Probably two of the toughest questions you can be asked…. ‘What’s your favourite song? What’s your favourite album?’ Ask me tomorrow and I’ll give you a different answer to the one I give you today. But, ‘What’s the Album that made you?’ Wow, when I heard ‘Hysteria’ by Def Leppard it was the most incredible assault of melody on my ears, something even to this day I consider recorded perfection. Or maybe Poison’s ‘Flesh & Blood’, which wore through several walkmans? An album that, whilst surprising to most, is probably the album that made me want to be in a band in the first place. These, along with an endless list of others, could suitably answer that question, but I’ve chosen a record that even upon hearing today, over twenty years later, still fills me with joy, angst, nostalgia but most of all, gets me inspired and excited by rock and roll.
