Bon Jovi...

Post  misery guts on Sun Aug 07, 2016 7:11 am

New Jersey rockers who reached the heights in the 1980s, and who continue to tour and record. Jon has dabbled in solo records and films, but his heart remains with his band. Here are a handful of their hits:

Livin' On A Prayer

Lay Your Hands On Me

Keep The Faith

Something For The Pain

Because We Can

^^^Sfunny, the idea that they had any success (let alone 2 LPs) before SWW always seems a bit odd to me.

Bon Jovi - In Concert
From Jan 24, 2013, at the BBC Radio Theatre, in London. They were mainly plugging their latest album, with a scant few of their hits (including a soporific version of 'Livin' On A Prayer') and the rest being others from their last 10 years. They have had to adapt, but they just feel out of place these days. Nice show, though, let's be fair.

Bon Jovi: Live From London
Wembley in 1995 in fact, from their "These Days" tour. There remains something a bit naff about JBJ and Richie Sambora's self-adulation, and whilst they have plenty of good songs, something always feels amiss. To their credit, they paid some lip service by bleeding I'll Sleep When I'm Dead into Papa Was A Rolling Stone, and then crossing Bad Medicine with Lulu's 1964 classic Shout! So there it is.

Rock Milestones: Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet
How the New Jersey rockers benefitted from the song-writing help of Desmond Child, to turn this 3rd album into their big break-through. I still find JBJ one of the most unintentionally funny rock figures.

Bon Jovi: In Performance
Many of the usual crowd looking over their successes in the 1980's. and changes made in the 1990's. The key problem to ask about them is what is the point? Inadequate Springsteen homages aren't enough.

Bon Jovi - Hits & Legends
A performance clips show, worth it for seeing them from Farm Aid (and Farm Aid II!), doing a surprising cover of Suspicious Minds as well as their more usual fare.
