American pop rock band. Bon Jovi is a popular American pop rock band formed in Sayreville, New Jersey in 1983. It includes singer Jon Bon Jovi, front man David Lee Roth, keyboards player David Bryan, and guitar player Tino Torres. The band gained popularity in the United States following the release of its first self-titled album, which reached number four in the United States. With the success of its sophomore album, Sticky Fingers, Bon Jovi went back to selling numerous numbers each year, including a high number in the album sales chart of The Grammophone.
Net Worth Although it has never achieved the same amount of financial success as the juggernaut that is Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen is still a formidable presence in the American musical landscape. Springsteen’s reputation as an influential and distinctive rock star is rivaled only by the music that he creates and tours with. The majority of Springsteen’s music has been covered by numerous other artists, but few have the impact that Springsteen has created. From his performances at several different music festivals around the world to his various ensembles, the man has made himself an individual who is well-recognized by fans and scholars of rock and folk music. Though his current album, Wrecking Ball, does not rank as high on the list of his best works, many people who have listened to it repeatedly and find themselves deeply impressed by his sincerity and his ability to create powerful stories.
Top 10 Rock Albums While the first two albums of this band do not crack the top ten of this list, they are still worthy of inclusion. It is obvious that the production of these two albums had a hand in their massive popularity. Aptly named after the name of the singer, both Reel Kid and Sticky Fingers featured top notch songs that appealed to a wide audience. Reel Kid also featured one of the first ever rock guitar solos, “Hound Dog.” A number of musicians feel that the success of this album helped to launch the career of Bon Jovi. “Sticky Fingers” was later certified Platinum by the RIAA, which is the major label in America that promotes and distributes most of the music releases from that country.
No. 5 Top Ten Metal Albums With Sticky Fingers topping the chart, the group’s next release, Sticky Fingers, wasn’t far behind. This studio album was released a week following the aforementioned tour, which is evident by the fact that both albums were released in the same month. This is important because Sticky Fingers was actually the first studio album to feature the synthesizer, which became an integral part of Bon Jovi’s sound. Bon Jovi had previously only recorded with a string section.
No. Four is another artist who should receive credit when discussing the rock genre and his influence on other artists. When I think about it, Guns N Roses might be the group that has made Guns N Roses grow into the iconic group that it is today. As everyone knows, Eric Clapton wrote most of the songs on this band’s debut, Appice of My Life. It would certainly be an overstatement to credit Guns N Roses with creating the very sound that is known today. However, Guns N Roses helped to shape and popularize the sound of alternative rock, which is what The Who did with their classic Quadrophenia.
The next Bon Jovi album to receive massive critical acclaim was Live in New York, which the band released a few weeks prior to No. Five. It is easily the greatest album of all time, and contains such classics as the timeless “Wanted Dead or Alive,” “Wordless,” and “I Remember You.” The album that follows it, I Remember You, features the epic classic “Wasted.” If you want to hear what a great band can do when they are at their creative best, Live in New York is the album for you.
