Bon Jovi’s 3rd #1 hit-they would eventually have 5. Their big hits for the most part fell in the 1986-1990 period. Outside of a couple songs- never cared for them- but of course they were better than some of the other garbage hair band- glam rockers of the era.
Yeah agree here. While you give love a bad name and livin on a prayer are guilty pleasures for me have to say things started to wear a bit thin with this one – too formulaic
Those two albums are faultless pop rock. Can’t argue with Slippery or New Jersey. Got a lot of love for Keep The Faith too. After that… Not so much
Have all CD’s native son of my Perth Amboy NJ!
Loved JBJ, still do, but of course, Jersey did.
