Medicine Man

Album: Blood On The Bricks (1991)

  • The multi-talented Aldo Nova is arguably the best kept secret of Canadian rock; why he never enjoyed the same commercial success as his contemporary Jon Bon Jovi is one of the great mysteries of life. At first glance, "Medicine Man" sounds like it may have the same subject matter as the John Lees song, but this is just good clean fun, uptempo commercial rock.
  • "Medicine Man" is actually the second track on Nova's 1991 album Blood On The Bricks; running to 4 minutes 49 seconds, it was co-written by Bon Jovi, and sounds like it. Great stuff. >>
