My Top Rock Albums of All Time: #21. Lee Aaron- Bodyrock (1989)

No list of my top rock albums would be complete without music from one of my favourite Canadian artists (and definitely my favourite female artist), the incomparable and immensely talented Lee Aaron.

I remember going to record stores and flipping through the albums in … Continue reading My Top Rock Albums Of All Time- #24. Quiet Riot- Metal Health (1983)

My Top Rock Albums of All Time- #25 Whitesnake – Whitesnake (1987)

Prior to the summer of 1987 I had no idea Whitesnake even existed.
