Triple CD Album
‘Platinum Rock’ features 60 of the biggest songs by the greatest rock stars ever.

Queen’s anthem ‘We Are The Champions’ starts Disc One, and is joined by some of the defining rock classics of all time from Bon Jovi with ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’, Emerson, Lake And Palmer’s ‘Fanfare For The Common Man’ and The Police’s brilliant ’Synchronicity II’. Songs that became synonymous with Rock are here from Meat Loaf with ‘Bat Out Of Hell’, Electric Light Orchestra’s ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’, Elton John’s amazing ‘Pinball Wizard’ and Paul McCartney & Wings’ defining ‘Jet’. Glam-influenced rock smashes from Golden Earring & Sweet are joined by the legendary collaboration between Motorhead and Girlschool - ‘Please Don’t Touch’. Era-defining riffs from The Clash and Blondie sound as fresh today as they did when they were released and the genre-defying partnership of Aerosmith and Run DMC is still dazzling. Classic rock from Steppenwolf, Toto, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Fleetwood Mac are all here with Disc One closed by ‘Handbags & Gladrags’ with a superb rock vocal from Rod Stewart.

Disc Two kicks off with The Who’s landmark ‘Baba O’Riley’ leading into an incomparable run of huge tracks including Boston’s ‘More Than A Feeling’, Blue Oyster Cult’s ‘(Don’t Fear) The Reaper’, Kansas ‘Carry On Wayward Son’ and Asia’s ‘Heat Of The Moment’ alongside legends Manfred Mann, Rainbow, Thin Lizzy, Free, Nazareth, Heart and the defining ‘Rockin’ All Over The World’ from Status Quo. Disc Two draws to its end with the stunning ‘Parisienne Walkways’ from Gary Moore & Philip Lynott and the epic prog of John Miles’ ‘Music’.

The ’80’s produced some of the biggest pop-rock tracks ever and included here on Disc Three are Bryan Adams’ ’Summer Of 69’, Kiss with ‘Crazy Crazy Nights’ and Alice Cooper’s renaissance smash ‘Poison’. Survivor’s ‘Eye Of The Tiger’ and Europe’s ‘Final Countdown’ both hit #1 and Billy Joel produced a lyrical masterpiece with ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’. Massive radio and sales hits from The Steve Miller Band, Cher and the huge power ballad ‘Keep On Loving You’ from REO Speedwagon are included alongside good-time bona-fide classics from Warrant and Poison and timeless rock from Judas Priest and Scorpions. U.S. new-wave produced The Knack’s ‘My Sharona’, The Runaways’ ‘I Love Playin’ With Fire’ and Patti Smith Group’s Bruce Springsteen-penned ‘Because The Night’ and to conclude - U2: a band that crossed so many genres and produced a modern rock classic with ‘Pride (In The Name Of Love)’.
