Overview

Blaze of Glory

Abandoning his rough-and-ready rock & roll band, Jon Bon Jovi took a stab at respectability with Blaze of Glory, the non-soundtrack to the film Young Guns II. Given his cowboy songs on Bon Jovi albums, it made sense that he'd be "inspired" by the Western, and he filled these songs (written without the help of bandmate Richie Sambora or Desmond Child) with references to shoot-'em-ups. Mainstream rock producer Danny Kortchmar put together the studio band, along with guest stars Jeff Beck, Elton John, and Little Richard, and the sound had more space and less drive than the lite-metal of Bon Jovi. That kind of approach put the spotlight squarely on the singer/songwriter, and Jon wasn't quite up to the scrutiny, although his still faithful fans dutifully bought the record despite the fact that Jon was in a starring role without his usual supporting cast.

Great movie! Great Soundtrack. If anything could make this music better it is the presence of Emilio Estavez, Lou Diamond Phillips and the amazing Kiefer Sutherland offering cameos on the album. The music speaks for itself, however. Billy Get Your Guns is a rocking hit; Miracle and Santa Fe tell the pain of loss; Blood Money is an homage to Bob Dylan's Knockin on Heaven's Door; Bang a Drum (also a tribute) tells a powerful message of hope; The rest of the songs on the album are a mix hits that make you dance, cry and think about just how talented Jon really is. This album rocks!
