Album Notes
John Sykes started his career in 1980 with the “New Wave of British Heavy Metal” band, The Tygers of Pan Tang. After two years of albums and tours with the Tygers, John left the band and ended up with the influential classic rock band, Thin Lizzy.

John joined Thin Lizzy in 1982 and performed on the album,” Thunder & Lightning” as well as the “Live Life” album and a live album recorded by the BBC of the band’s last show at the Reading festival in 1983. After this “farewell” tour, John joined Phil Lynott for Phil’s solo tour of Europe in a band dubbed, The Three Musketeers.

John was then invited to join the band Whitesnake and he appeared on the U.S. release of the “Slide It In” album. The band toured constantly in support of the album and ended the tour in front of 500,000 people at “Rock in Rio” in 1985. The show was also broadcast to millions of people on television throughout South America.

Whitesnake’s next album was the self-titled 1987 release, which featured Sykes’ fiery guitar playing as well as his diverse song-writing talents. The album went on to sell approximately 20 million copies world-wide and songs Sykes co-wrote such as “Still of the Night” and “Is This Love” are still staples on rock radio today.

After leaving Whitesnake John returned to England and formed the critically acclaimed band, Blue Murder. The band featured bassists Tony Franklin and drummer Carmine Appice. Their debut album not only showcased John’s fiery and melodic guitar playing but his excellent singing voice as well. The material ranges from epic rock songs like “Valley of the Kings” to more pop-oriented songs like “Jelly Roll”.

For the last several years John has been releasing material under the name Sykes. Also, he and Scott Gorham still tour successfully as Thin Lizzy with John handling the vocals for the late great Phil Lynott.

Great Album
I really enjoy listening to this, all love songs, a nice break from the heavier stuff which I also like a lot - John is not only a virtuoso guitarist, but he has an amazing voice!


Wow, Where do i start....
Wow, where do i start? I'm not a musician so i won't blow you away with my awesome writing but lemme tell ya as a fan. If you think "Is this Love" is a great song, you are in for a wonderful surprise. John is a beautiful soul who opens his heart on this album and its nothing but champagne and roses. The sweeping melodies and tender delivery of his vocal lines will have you melting like chocolate on a hot summer day. The subject material, while all about love covers everything from appreciation to the confidence of knowing you've found the right one to longing & yearning for love to searching one's feelings to the promise of one's love for all eternity and these don't even get us started. The album has so much variety that it never gets old. Only the last track is slightly different while referencing John Lennon's death at the beginning but stays in the mid tempo range and its place in the track listing is appropriate so it doesn't interrupt the rhythm of the other 9 tracks. I would like to tell you my favorites but they are all so good that I am doing you a huge favor by letting you fall in love with your own as you play this album over and over. Have played this album so many times, its John's best work in this fan's opinion. if you are new to Sykes, start here and you'll be a fan for life.
