Bochum (Germany)-based guitar wizard AXEL RUDI PELL releases the first single and video from the new ballads album “The Ballads V” today.
For the first time ever in his almost thirty-year career as a solo artist, AXEL RUDI PELL welcomes a special guest star on one of his albums: rock legend BONNIE TYLER has recorded a stunning duet with ARP’s longtime singer Johnny Gioeli.
AXEL RUDI PELL is justly proud of his new single ‘Love’s Holding On’ (street date: 31st March 2017), saying: “BONNIE TYLER only records songs she personally likes. So I wrote this tune just for her and she really loved it. She came to the studio and we recorded it within a couple of hours. The result is amazing – another soon-to-be PELL classic in the making. If I hadn’t been a fan already, I would have turned into one instantly.”
