Music For Big Kids


The year was 1979. The first time LOVERBOY took to the big stage opening for KISS @ the Coliseum.

The next year a music television station called MTV in America signed on. They had very few videos of North American rock bands, relying heavily on the European band videos that were created due to the shortage of rock radio in Europe.

The rest as they say is history. TURN ME LOOSE was one of the first videos for LOVEBOY from their debut album on Columbia Records.
