If you were a fan of the 1987 album by Whitesnake, you should be familiar with the awesome guitar work of John Sykes. Blue Murder is the band started up by Sykes after his departure from Whitesnake. Needless to say, the songs from Blue Murder have a definite Whitesnake like vibe about them, but they stand out on their own merit.
It didn’t hurt his cause that he got two amazing musicians to join him in Blue Murder. The Firm’s fretless bass wonder Tony Franklin and former Ozzy Osbourne drummer Carmine Appice flesh out would could be one of the best hard rock three piece acts of the eighties.
Blue Murder has it all. Great vocals, fantastic guitar work and killer songs. This CD has been one of my favorites over the last 20 years. I still play this one regularly today. I became a fan of John Sykes because of the infamous 1987 Whitesnake album, but it was the Blue Murder disc that solidified him as one of my favorite guitarists of all time.
The Bottom line: Every hard rock and metal fan on the planet ought to own this excellent CD. You can grab your own copy of this disc, at this link.
