#songoftheday = REVOLUTION SAINTS: “I WOULDN’T CHANGE A THING”
Revolution Saints is another project that comes courtesy of Serafino Perugino, who wanted to highlight acclaimed drummer Deen Castronovo’s vocals. Deen has been in such bands as Journey and Bad English in the past, but always as a drummer. Thankfully, Serafino knew he could sing and put him to the task by uniting him with guitarist Doug Aldrich (of Whitesnake, Dio and House of Lords fame) and bassist and singer Jack Blades (of Night Ranger and Damn Yankees fame). Oddly enough, “I Wouldn’t Change A Thing,” the band’s gorgeous new single, was originally written by Richard Page from Mr. Mister. I never would’ve guessed that, but now that I know it, it makes sense. I always liked Mr. Mister and I can hear them doing this one in my head when I think about it. That said, Revolution Saints made it their own and the result is one of the sweetest ballads I’ve ever heard. If you like melodic rock or even AOR, you’re going to love it. At least if you’re a romantic at heart.
