Bon Jovi: "Let it Rock: The Making of Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet"; New Book

RockN Roll Books is excited to announce the acquisition of "Let it Rock: The Making of Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet" from popular UK-based music biographer Neil Daniels, whose recently published works include "The Story of Judas Priest: Defenders of the Faith" (Omnibus Press) and "Don't Stop Believin' - The Untold Story of Journey" (Omnibus Press).

"Let it Rock" will take fans behind the scenes into the studio and broader world of Bon Jovi as the band created what would become a touchstone for hard rock in the later 1980s, helping the genre's commercial cross over with the band's mainstream success with chart-topping hits like 'Livin' on a Prayer,' 'You Give Love a Bad Name,' and 'Wanted Dead or Alive.' The book will include behind the scenes interviews with members of the band's inner-circle, studio personnel, management, etc., and promises to offer the first definitive look inside the making of an album that - according to Rolling Stone Magazine- helped Bon Jovi explode into "one of the dominant mainstream rock bands of the Eighties."

Commenting for his fans on what they can expect from the pages of his latest rock read, Neil Daniels revealed that `Slippery When Wet` remains not only the most pivotal album in Bon Jovi's career but also one of the genre's defining albums of the 1980s and this book will explore the album's history as well as placing it within a broader spectrum of the band's back catalogue. Is it their best work."
