Ever since the first time I heard the song “Fantasy” on MTV back in 1981, I have been a huge fan of Aldo Nova’s. In fact, I finally got to meet him back during his “Blood on the Bricks” Tour back in 1991. It was cool getting his autograph and the band’s which included current Bon Jovi guitarist, Phil X.
Aldo hails from Canada and has worked with Jon Bon Jovi on the debut album of Bon Jovi and his solo album from the movie ‘Young Guns’ which he wrote the guitar riff for “Blaze of Glory”. He has also worked with Celine Dion where he has written for her as well as produced which garnered him a Grammy for Producing her album “Falling Into You”. He has been busy. However, we will only concentrate on his Solo work here for this post.
He has put out only 6 solo albums and there is talk of some new material coming and if so, I will be in line to buy it (okay, I will click away on my computer and have it delivered). From his eponymous debut to Aldo Nova 2.0, we will go through and I will rank them from Worst to First. I am sure people will disagree the order, but that is fine as this is only my opinion, you have your own. I do hope you enjoy it nonetheless and maybe you discover something new and try him out.
