Loverboy: "Heartbreaker" and "Lovin` Every Minute of It" Live on Fox and Friends

Loverboy recently appeared on Fox & Friends to perform their new single "Heartbreaker" and the classic "Lovin' Every Minute Of It". "Heartbreaker" reunited the Canadian rockers with producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Motley Crue) and can be streamed and purchased at

"I look at our concerts as a 100-minute experience," says Paul Dean, who still claims to be able to fit into the same pair of red leather pants he wore on the "Queen of the Broken Hearts" video in 1983. "I'm a normal guy up until 10 minutes before we hit the stage. Then the heart rate goes up and I consciously step into the bubble. And I don't come out of it until 30 seconds after that last cymbal smash and I walk off-stage. It's a great stress release, better than riding a Harley."

Perhaps the band's most famous song is "Working for the Weekend," which has fueled a generation's dreams of toiling every day for the chance to celebrate come Friday night. Dean realizes it has taken on a whole new meaning these days.

"You're lucky if you can work for the weekend now," he says. "We're all fortunate to be doing that."

With four decades under his belt, Dean sees no end in sight for Loverboy... or himself.

"My dream has always been to play guitar and entertain people," he enthuses. "There's no feeling like looking out in the audience and seeing them grinning ear to ear, everyone on the same wavelength. And once we start with the megahits, the place goes crazy. That's why we do what we do and will continue."
