Synopsis

The first-ever official Bon Jovi book celebrates the band’s 25th anniversary with previously untold stories straight from Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, David Bryan, and Tico Torres, and never-before-seen photographs from Phil Griffin (known for his Bon Jovi documentary When We Were Beautiful, as well as for collaborations with Amy Winehouse, Prince, Annie Lenox, Kings of Leon, and Paul McCartney). This one-of-a-kind biography will bring back the heyday of classic songs like “Livin’ on a Prayer,” “Wanted Dead or Alive,” and “You Give Love A Bad Name” in the 1980s, and transport newer fans to the tour bus alongside Bon Jovi’s recent Lost Highway and Circle tours—it’s the perfect gift for anyone born to rock.

A slow but joyful song, you can’t help but sing along to is “Sha Na Na Hey.” “Superman Tonight” gives you a vibe that Jon Bon Jovi is actually sitting in the same room, singing that song to the woman of his choice.
