John Norum was born February 23, 1964 in Norway and is an extremely talented, skillful hard rock/metal guitarist that initially received major attention with the Swedish rock band Europe, which he co-founded and also continues to perform with on occasion. He does also perform solo, and with guest appearances with other bands, as well as was a member of Dokken for some time. John's sister, Tone Norum, is pretty talented herself, and is fairly well known for her own musical accomplishments and career, which has included guest appearances of John on a couple of her albums. John Norum's first album Total Control was released in 1987. This album has some fantastic songs, music and especially the guitar works of John! There are many great songs on this album, imo. With a nice combination of excellently written and performed songs, most of which are collaborations with Marcel Jacob, who does play bass on the album, too. I also enjoy the instrumental "In Chase Of The Wind" and the excellent cover version of one of my favorite Thin Lizzy songs, "Wild One." John Norum has done some terrific cover versions of a few Thin Lizzy songs mostly on his solo albums that I both like and also believe that Phil Lynott would like and appreciate, too, imo! Let Me Love You Love Is Meant To Last Forever Eternal Flame In Chase Of The Wind The video for "Wild One" is on YT, however I get this message when trying try to view it... This video contains content from The Orchard Music and Sony Music Entertainment. It is not available in your country. Sorry about that. Hopefully some people can view the video without any hindrances. As much as I greatly enjoy a lot of Europes' earlier songs/music with John Norum as guitarist (which I certainly do!), I thoroughly enjoy his first few solo albums significantly, with a significant emphasis on volume!
