One of the best rocker crooner I have ever heard. Voice, charism, energy, instrumental, production, all is there for a blowing result. Ones always criticise the man or the raise mainstream music flag against him but this guy and his team were among the best rock'n roll/blues band we got in 80's and early 90's. Nothing to compare with Europe for instance. Listen to his compilation "Idol Songs - 11 Of The Best", I bet you'll be thunderstruck (AC/DC all rights reserved) and charmed.
