An up-to-date, fully illustrated biography of Bon Jovi, the New Jersey band led by rock superstar Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist, songwriter and heavy metal glamour boy.
Follow Jon's story from his early apprenticeship sweeping floors at New York's Record Plant recording studios, through the formation of his band in 1983, to their multi-platinum albums 'Slippery When Wet', 'New Jersey' and 'Keep The Faith'. Their recent compilation album 'Cross Road' was the biggest selling album of 1994 in the UK, spawning the massive hit single 'Always'.
Bon Jovi transcend fashion, getting bigger and bigger despite gloomy predictions to the contrary. This book traces their rise from the clubs and bars of New Jersey to their present status as untouchable global icons. It deals with the trials and tribulations, the joy and despair of a bunch of talented musicians who become caught in the cyclone of teenybop attraction yet successfully established themselves as songwriters and performers of world class.
The book includes full details of the Bon Jovi Band - Jon, guitarist Richie Sambora, keyboards player David Bryan and drummer Tico Torres - and their former bassist Alec John Such. It also includes a full discography and scores of pictures.
