LOVERBOY KEEP IT UP ON TODAY.COM

Loverboy has never really gone away, but these days, the veteran Canadian rockers are not only continuing to entertain audiences young and old, but, to quote one of their biggest hits, they’re “Lovin’ Every Minute of It.”

The group’s new single, “Heartbreaker,” produced by Juno award winner Bob Rock, who was the engineer on Loverboy’s self-titled, 1980 debut, is now a video.  It premiered exclusively on NBC’s The Today Show site Today.com, with an accompanying article which you can read at http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/44062156/ns/today-entertainment/. Rock also has a cameo in the clip, which was inspired by the kind of DIY viral videos popular on YouTube.

Guitarist Paul Dean, who formed the band in Calgary, Alberta, 30 years ago with vocalist Mike Reno, going on to sell 10 million albums, said, “I really like that the video looks organic and real. We learned from the best videographers around…all those kids who post their short films on the Internet, like the skateboarders."

Reno also points to the Web for the renewed interest in the band, whose four multi-platinum albums have yielded such arena-rock hits as “Working for the Weekend,” “Hot Girls in Love” and “Turn Me Loose.”

"I'm happy and gratified with what we're doing now," Reno told Today.com. "We're still here, the fans are still here, now they're bringing their kids. For me, it just couldn't get better. We are surrounded by a whole new breed of youngsters that know all the words.They got the headbands on, they got the T-shirts…"

The band has also been in the popular culture spotlight with references on 30 Rock (with Scott Adsit’s Pete Hornberger claiming to be Loverboy’s original bassist at http://www.hulu.com/watch/217096/30-rock-its-never-too-late-for-now) and Comedy Central’s Regular Show on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4AC0uvU0jQ.) The group was also part of the classic Saturday Night Live sketch featuring Patrick Swayze and the late Chris Farley as Chippendale dancers auditioning to “Working for the Weekend” at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PSDTEbr7nE
