I like a good amount of Bon Jovi, mainly the hits. Some decent deeper tracks exist as well. But I can't stand any of that adult contemporary pop country stuff they did after their heyday.  Definitely one of the harder fall offs of any classic era band.

yea he's like trying to springsteen who himself is doing Woodie Guthry.  it's annoying.

Mick

Just because you're a famous rock star from New Jersey doesn't mean you can write deep lyrics and put a good melody to them over an acoustic guitar.

i like jon through Crush in 2000 or Crash or whatever it's called.  after that Jon decides being florida georgia line would be great, lol even though he pre-dates them i think he birthed them actually, lol.

I had a close friend in college who was an excellent musician and a music theory nerd.  His favorite genre was country, and generally the most poppy modern bro country stuff at that. Could not believe it. Anyway he was from New Jersey, his favorite band was Florida Georgia Line and he'd never listened to Bruce Springsteen. Somehow this seems relevant.

No - I wouldn't really call myself a fan - some of their earlier stuff was ok.

3-4 - Some of the older albums.

Yes -  When we were in Orlando in 2018 we went to see them. JBJ's voice had, by this stage, seen better days!

His voice wasn’t all that during the Slippery When Wet or New Jersey tours.

Gene would probably charge me for wearing Jeans, or GENE'S, which is his name for them after he put in a bid to trademark them.

F no ... but I once had a woman request a Bon Jovi song. I didn't know how to play any but played something else instead ha ha. She started to strip, lol.  So, I named my Ibanez metal guitar "Ladyberries".

I still enjoy their 80s stuff but they're not a band I have regularly listened to in ages. As I have gotten older, I really noticed how shit they are when compared to other good music that's out there. They've been garbage for over 30 years now. I think after John wrote Blaze Of Glory he said "f**k it, I've got nothing left" and has been on autopilot ever since.

My excuse is they were the support band to KISS in 1984.
Ki$$ is cool if you're 14 years old or younger.

Must have been all that Jolt cola that he was known for drinking to stay energized.  Twice the caffeine, twice the cola, zero the help of singing.
