Biography

Sayreville, New York NJ, United States (1983 – present)

Bon Jovi is a band from Sayreville, New Jersey. Fronted by lead singer and namesake Jon Bon Jovi (born John Francis Bongiovi, Jr.), the group originally achieved large-scale success in the . Over the past 25 years, the band has sold over 120 million albums worldwide, 34 million of those sales being in the U.S. alone, making them one of the most successful modern groups of all time. They continue to have widely popular tours.

Bon Jovi formed in 1983. Lead singer Jon Bon Jovi teamed up with guitarist Richie Sambora, keyboardist David Bryan, bassist Alec John Such, and drummer Tico Torres. Other than the departure of Alec John Such in 1994, which pared the lineup down to a quartet, the lineup has remained the same for the past 27 years.

The group took influence from contemporary arena-ready bands such as Aerosmith and Deep Purple among others while also seeking a , -oriented vibe focused on slick guitar and keyboard riffs, with Bon Jovi becoming a key part in what was to become ‘’ music. After releasing two moderately successful albums in 1984 and 1985, which resulted in the production of some popular singles such as “Runaway” (the band’s first Top 40 hit in the U.S.), the band scored big with ‘Slippery When Wet’ (1986) and ‘New Jersey’ (1988). Those two albums sold a combined 19 million copies in the U.S. alone, charted eight Top Ten hits, and launched the band into global super-stardom.

    I hope that the band gets through Richie's defection. I'm glad that we've had time to process it before it was made official. To get both new Bon Jovi and Sambora albums could be a good thing. I do hope that if they take in a new permanent guitarist (Phil X?) that both he and Hugh is made official members. It's about time that the latter gets some recognition.

    Любителю тяжелого рока хорошо отдыхается за такой приятной музней, разбавляя обычный тяжеляк.

    Какая же параша этот последний альбом. Альбомы после 1986 можно не слушать, за исключением единиц песен, которые можно сосчитать на пальцах одной руки, к сожалению.
