Cinderella Top 5 – EP066
Growin' Up Rock
This week Sonny and I scream “SHAKE ME” at the top of our lungs all night as we both pick our Top 5 Cinderella songs. We barely avoid an all-out brawl on mic when we both claim a song as our favorite, deciding in the end to let technology pick the true winner of the favorite song sweepstakes. I remember seeing Cinderella in the 90's, long after their “heyday.” With rock considered passe at the time, I was psyched to be able to see a band I dug in a small club at an affordable price. Cinderella blew the roof off the place that night, and I remember thinking, "Here is a rock band that, in an arena or small club, delivers kick-ass music to the roar of a crowd" and I have never forgotten that fact. Sonny and I both decided we have somewhat of a love/hate relationship with this band, but both of us agree it's more love than hate. There are certainly more than enough killer songs to go around and make it a very tough task to decide which are our Top 5 Cinderella songs at the moment we happened to record this episode of the Growin’ Up Rock Podcast. Make sure you go to our Facebook page, Podchaser, or our website and share your thoughts on the band, your top 5 favorites and what you think of this episode.

Dokken Top 5 At This Minute – EP057
Growin' Up Rock
It’s been a long time coming but we are finally doing a Dokken Top 5 List. On this episode we spin the Dial O’ Destiny and pick our top 5 favorite Dokken tunes. At least at this minute. Sonny and I are such huge Dokken fans, we found it impossible to pick just 5 of our favorite Dokken songs, so for the sake of time, as in we don’t have enough, we decided to capture a moment in time and record our favorites at this minute. Rockin' with Dokken is definitely a Growing Up Rock pasttime for Hollywood and me, and picking our favorite songs is like asking “Do you want cheese and bacon on that burger”? - Answer - UMMMMM - YES and YES!!! We also talk about our recent adventures in concert going, and how we think the economics of our universe will vastly improve the human and alien relationships of the future. OK - so I made that last part up, just wanted to see if you actually read this shit. Dokken is an American metal band formed in 1979. It split up in 1989 and reformed four years later. The band had three charting singles ("Alone Again", "In My Dreams" and "Burning Like a Flame") and have sold more than 10 million albums worldwide.

Queen Top 5 With Bohemian Rhapsody Movie Review – EP072
Growin' Up Rock
In this Growin' Up Rock episode, we give our review of the new Queen movie “Bohemian Rhapsody.”  We enlist the help of fellow podcaster, Queen fan, and host of the Damn Good Movie Memories podcast, Brian Davis to come along for the ride as we doubledown to make it a Top 5 Queen songs episode too. When you talk about influential classic rock bands of the 70's and 80's, you would be hard pressed not to mention one of the greatest of all time, Queen. A completely ground-breaking rock band, they had songwriting talent all around, plus an iconic singer in Freddie Mercury and an amazing guitar player in Brian May. Queen broke all boundaries of what a rock band should look and sound like. Influencing bands like Guns and Roses, Metallica, Extreme and many others along the way. There are so many different textures and moods to Queen’s music, it’s almost doing a disservice to them to lump the songs under one umbrella of Rock n Roll, but at the heart of their music beats a well-oiled Rock n Roll machine. Kick back, enjoy our movie review and listen as we talk about some of our favorite Queen tunes and pick a few deeper tracks to play that you may or may not be that familiar with.

Top 5 Kix With Steve Whiteman – EP069
Growin' Up Rock
We love Kix,  so we pick our Top 5 Kix tunes to share. We also love Kix Lead Singer Steve Whiteman and when we had the opportunity to catch up with Steve to discuss the 30th anniversary of the Kix classic album Blow My Fuse we jumped on it. Kix are for kids, but Kix Rock n Roll is for everyone whose ever cranked up the car stereo to 11 and rolled down the windows while rolling down the highway on a sunny day. It was tough to pick our top 5 Kix tunes, but like all other top 5 episodes we ever decide to do, we take the coward way out and commit to our top 5 at that particular moment, because damn, we love Kix and our favorites change at any given moment.
