Jon Bon Jovi
Jon Bon Jovi (born John Francis Bongiovi, Jr.; March 2, 1962) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, best known as the founder and the lead singer of rock band Bon Jovi, which was formed in 1983.Jon Bon Jovi was born John Francis Bongiovi, Jr. in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, the son of two former Marines, barber John Francis Bongiovi, Sr. and Playboy Bunny turned florist Carol Sharkey.[4] He has two brothers, Anthony and Matthew.[5] His father was of Italian (from Sciacca, Sicily) and Slovak ancestry and his mother was of German and Russian descent.[6][7] He has stated that he is a blood relative of singer Frank Sinatra.[8] Bon Jovi was raised Catholic.[9] He spent summers in Erie, Pennsylvania, with his grandparents, and sold newspapers.[10] As a child, John attended St. Joseph High School, in Metuchen, New Jersey, during his freshman and sophomore years.[11] He later transferred to Sayreville War Memorial High School in Parlin, New Jersey.[12] John spent most of his adolescence skipping school to opt for music activities instead, and ended up playing in local bands with friends and his cousin Tony Bongiovi, who owned the then famous New York recording studio, The Power Station. As a result, his academic records displayed poor grades. By the time he was 16, John Bongiovi was playing clubs. It was not long before he joined up with keyboardist David Bryan (real name: David Bryan Rashbaum), who played with him in a ten-piece rhythm and blues band called Atlantic City Expressway. John also performed with bands called The Rest, The Lechers and John Bongiovi and the Wild Ones. Bon Jovi's third album Slippery When Wet launched the band into global super stardom which spawned two number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100—"You Give Love A Bad Name" and "Livin' on a Prayer" —and became the best selling album of 1987. The follow-up album to Slippery When Wet was New Jersey, which shared similar success, producing five Top-10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, giving Bon Jovi the record for the most Top-10 singles spawned by a hard rock album. Touring and recording non-stop during the late 1980s, the band went on hiatus after the New Jersey Syndicate Tour in 1990. During the hiatus of the band Jon Bon Jovi released his debut solo album Blaze Of Glory, in 1990, which includes songs from and inspired by the movie Young Guns II. The title track reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, earning him a then a Golden Globe. In 1992, the band returned with the album Keep the Faith. Besides his music career, Jon Bon Jovi started an acting career in the mid 90s. He made his acting debut in the Moonlight and Valentino (1995), starring roles in several movies and released his second solo album Destination Anywhere in 1997. The band's 2000 single "It's My Life", which followed a second hiatus, successfully introduced the band to a younger audience. "It's My Life" was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group.[1] The band's ninth studio album, Have a Nice Day, which was released in 2005, yielded the hit single "Who Says You Can't Go Home", reaching at number one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs and Bon Jovi became the first rock band to have a number one single on Billboard's Country Chart and earning the band a then a Grammy Award. In 2007, Bon Jovi released their tenth studio album, Lost Highway. The album influences the band's rock sound with that of country music following the success of "Who Says You Can't Go Home. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and the Lost Highway Tour was the number one tour of 2008, grossing $210.6 million. Although "Lost Highway" achieved great success, the band returned to their rock roots in 2009 with their eleventh studio album, The Circle. The album also debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and The Circle Tour was the highest grossing concert tour of 2010 according to Billboard's annual Top 25 concert tours, grossing $201.1 million. During his career, he has released two solo albums and eleven studio albums with his band, which to date have sold over 130 million albums worldwide making them one of the world's best-selling music artists. As songwriter, Jon Bon Jovi inducted into Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009.[2][3] In 2012, Jon Bon Jovi ranked number fifty on the list of Billboard magazine's "Power 100", a ranking of "The Most Powerful and Influential People In The Music Business". He was also ranked second on Forbes Magazine's list of the "World's Highest Paid Musicians", earning an approximate $125 million income in 2010. In 1996, People magazine named him as one of the "50 Most Beautiful People In The World". In 2000, the same magazine named him as the "Sexiest Rock Star" and he was also placed at number thirteen on VH1's "100 Sexiest Artists ". In addition, Jon Bon Jovi is the one of the majority owners of the AFL team Philadelphia Soul. He is the founder of The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation which was founded in 2006 and exists to combat issues that force families and individuals into economic despair. He also campaigned for Al Gore in the 2000 Presidential election, John Kerry in the 2004 Presidential election, and Barack Obama in the 2008 Presidential election. In 2010, President Barack Obama named Jon Bon Jovi to the White House Council for Community Solutions. He was also awarded an honorary Doctorate of Humanities from Monmouth University in 2001
