50 Definitely Looks Good On Jersey’s Own Native Son
Happy birthday to Jon Bon Jovi!
Jon was born John Francis Bongiovi, Jr. on March 2, 1962 in Sayreville, New Jersey.
Will he ever truly age??
“You’re never going to see the fat Elvis in me”, he says.
And he also says, “when I look at my peers Bob Dylan, Jimmy Page, Bruce Springsteen, Bono, they’re all over 50 and still doing great. That’s because they don’t live the bullshit or cliched rock star life. They survive on a great catalogue and new material. That’s the team I play for.”
He also makes no bones that “God blessed me” and wihout his wife and kids to see him through the pressures of fame and demands of recording and touring, he’d “be a dead man.”
Thankfully, those rumors were just that a few months back, and Jon is alive and well.
Happy Birthday to a Jersey–and worldwide–rock superstar!! Thanks for all the great music, Jon, and many more years of rockin’ us all!
