MTV-era rockers Loverboy built an enduring crowd through savvy songwriting and marathon touring. “I used to joke that we were gone so long that when I’d come home, the dog would bite me,” says vocalist Mike Reno.
The band remains in high gear, supporting 2014’s “Unfinished Business.” The bluesy romp “Doin’ it the Hard Way” is a modern answer to the 1981 single “Working for the Weekend,” with a hint of BTO’s “Takin’ Care of Business” included.
