Bon Jovi followed up on their first #1 hit ‘You Give Love A Bad Name’- with another #1-‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ I guess has become their ‘signature song.’ They would have 5 #1 hits from 1986-90- none of which I care to ever hear again. Some trivia to tell your friends the next time you are watching a New England Patriots game- Bon Jovi is Bill Belichick’s favorite band- Bill knows football…. Rock and Roll maybe not- if these guys were a football team they’d be the Jacksonville Jags.
