Legendary songwriter Desmond Child has 70 Top 40 hits to his name, a GRAMMY, and a Songwriters Hall of Fame induction! He’s written huge tunes for Bon Jovi (“Livin’ On A Prayer”), Aerosmith (“Dude (Looks Like A Lady)”), Ricky Martin (“Cup Of Life”), KISS (“I Was Made For Lovin’ You”), Katy Perry (“Waking Up In Vegas”), Joan Jett (“I Hate Myself For Lovin’ You”), and Alice Cooper! And he’s sharing all the stories behind the songs, and explaining how Paul Stanley of KISS was instrumental in pivoting Desmond’s music career from that of bandmember to songwriter and producer. You’ll discover the songs he likes, the ones he’s not too fond of, and the few that find new life in new forms (can you say NFL Sunday Night Football theme)? Plus, Desmond talks about the time he met Michael Jackson, and why the never ended up writing together.
