Editors’ Notes The power ballad is rock’s ultimate show of emotion. They’re where hard-rock singers like Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Guns N’ Roses’ Axl Rose expose their softer sides; where masters of drama like Meat Loaf turn up their theatrics and their amps in unison; and where guitarists like Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora and Journey’s Neal Schon lay down their sweetest solos. Power ballads have soundtracked romance’s most blissed-out moments and breakups’ hardest times, offering listeners solace in hooky, heart-opening anthems.
