Recensione album

As the guitarist of Hanoi Rocks, Andy McCoy was responsible for penning the lion's share of the band's material during their classic period of 1981 through 1984. So it would only make sense that McCoy would launch a solo career of his own after the group announced their initial split in 1985, right? Well...yes and no. McCoy would opt to collaborate with others in a variety of projects, and would also find the time to issue sporadic solo releases, including his second solo effort, Building on Tradition, in 1995.

Sleaze rock may have been at an all-time low in popularity circa 1995, but Andy McCoy wasn't going down without a fight, and he proudly waves his flag high throughout Building on Tradition.

Born Antti Hulkko on October 11, 1962, in Pelkosenniemi, Finland, both McCoy's guitar playing and fashion style can be linked to two specific all-time rock & roll greats, Keith Richards and Johnny...
