Jon Bon Jovi is one of those versatile musicians and still fill an entire stadium at the age of fifty, even bringing it to a boil. If he stood on rooftops with long, billowing years at a young age, his style has changed dramatically over the years. The hair became short, and the musician became a model rocker, who also showed great interest in acting. He stormed the charts with songs like “Blaze of Glory” or “It’s my Life,” his album “Keep the Face” became known worldwide, sold 9 million copies, and led to a two-year world tour. Even today, Jon Bon Jovi is still a big heartbreaker and heartbreaker who lives for his music.
His real name is John Frank Bongiovi. He was born on March 2, 1962. His parents come from Italy. His father was a hairdresser, and his mother owned a flower shop until her son became so successful that she became the director of his fan club. His career began on a tiny scale. First, he cleaned the recording studios of his cousin Tony, where he met bands like “Talking Heads” or the “Ramones”. His fascination for this type of music grew his interest in wanting to make music. He was inspired by musical role models, including the group “Aerosmith”, greats like Cooper, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Springsteen. He got to know keyboardist Roy Brittan better and recorded the song “Runaway” with him through the latter. He tried to sell the single but only met with rejections from the record studios. Only when the single was repeatedly requested on the radio and ended up on a local compilation album did further interest arise.
In 1983 Jon Bon Jovi founded his band called “Bon Jovi”, with which he went on tour and was finally able to play on a big stage at a “Kiss” concert. His guitarist Richie Sambora often met with Cher, for whom they then wrote several songs. Jon made music with the band for seven years until an internal dispute arose. His Manger, McGhee, directed the musical career but took Sambora’s side in the band dispute so that Jon separated from him in 1992. The reconciliation of the band was not long in coming, and they went on tour together again. The second album was entitled “Destination Anywhere”.
His success allowed Jon to get a taste of the film industry. He was allowed to play a supporting role in the western “Blaze of Glory” and wrote the soundtrack. Several other film roles followed, for example, in films such as “The Principle of Happiness,” in which he played a drunkard who beats up his wife, or “John Carpenter’s Vampires: Los Muertos.”
Albums like “Keep the Face” and “Crossroads” sealed his musical success. There Jon showed himself from his soulful side and, in particular, became the crush of many women. Songs like “Always” have been played on the radio several times. Jon Bon Jovi became a sympathetic rock star with a heart.
With over 120 million records sold, his band is considered one of the world’s most successful rock bands. So it is no wonder that the planned album “Crush” caused some excitement when an unknown stole Jon’s notebook in which he had recorded all the song ideas and lyrics. For the album, a few songs had to be collected quickly that had nothing to do with the intended project. Nevertheless, the album was a success in 2000, and songs like “It’s my Life” landed at number 1.
Jon got married secretly, in a night and fog action. Jon Bon Jovi and his wife Dorothea Rose Hurley got married in Las Vegas. Since high school, they had known each other, with Hurley initially having a crush on Jon’s boyfriend. When he went to the Navy, Jon arranged a date with her, and the story took its course. The marriage had three children.
