BombShellShocked is the fourth album (third full-length album) from the Eric Stuart Band (ESB) in which Eric Stuart is the songwriter and lead singer. This album was released in 2002 under the Rev Up Records label (unlike other ESB albums, which are under Stuart's own independent label, Widow's Peak Records). One of the songs on this album is “Blood Red Rose,” in which Stuart plays acoustic guitar and sings in the absence of the band, much the same way as he opened as a solo act for Chicago (1995, 1997, 1998), Jethro Tull (1997), and Hall and Oates (1997, 1998), and toured as a solo act with Ringo Starr (1997), Lynyrd Skynyrd (1997), and Peter Frampton (1999). Another song is “A Boy In Love With You,” in which guitars and drums are absent, and Stuart sings instead with the accompaniment of piano, violins, viola, and cello. The artwork depicts items such as Stuart’s own star-shaped belt buckle, his Batman ring, and other items. The dedication on the album reads,

“Dedicated to the victims and families of the tragic events of 9/11. Your memory will always live in our hearts. We will never forget.”
