John Diva & The Rockets of Love unleash video for new single “Bling Bling Marilyn”
John Diva & The Rockets of Love consisting of lead vocalist John Diva, guitarists J.J. Love and Snake Rocket, bassist Remmie Martin and drummer Lee Stingray have unveiled a video for the first single “Bling Bling Marilyn” from their upcoming new studio album American Amadeus, which will be released via Steamhammer Records on January 15, 2021. The track “Bling Bling Marilyn” was written by Diva and Kissin’ Dynamite frontman Hannes Braun.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of John Diva & The Rockets of Love‘s debut album Mama Said Rock Is Dead:
“Upon hearing the album, there will be many Bon Jovi fans wishing this is what their latest album would have sounded like. Lead vocalist John Diva‘s pipes also closely resemble Jon Bon Jovi‘s mid-tenor rasp and the band does cover a few Bon Jovi tracks as part of their live set. Probably the most Bon Jovi sounding tracks on Mama Said Rock Is Dead would be “Blinded” (which is cut from the same cloth as “Livin’ On a Prayer”), “Wild Life” and “Fire Eyes” which all capture a huge essence of 1980s radio friendly power-pop.
Mama Said Rock Is Dead does not have a weak track to be heard. Even the ballad (which I typically skip over on most rock albums) “Just A Night Away” moves into power-ballad territory after about a minute into the song. No expense has been spared in the sound production of the album nor the videos that have been released. And again comparable with Steel Panther, the band appears to be veteran musicians who can write and perform music very well without losing the fun factor that so many musicians fall victim to. Lead guitarists, J.J. Love and Snake Rocket, produce some of the sweetest sounds that the instrument can create.”
