Bon Jovi was born John Francis Bongiovi Jr in Perth Amboy, New Jersey. His mother was a former model who was one of the Playboy Bunnies and his father was a US Marine Corps veteran. He grew up listening to his parents’ records and loved playing guitar and writing songs. He first started performing in local clubs. He later worked as a janitor at the Power Station, a recording studio in New York City. In 1982, he took a demo of his song ‘Runaway’ to the radio station WAPP and the song gained popularity. This led to the formation of the Bon Jovi band.

Bon Jovi is an avid sports fan and has played baseball, football, golf and tennis. He has also done some acting in several movies.

The band split up in 1991 but re-formed in 1992. They released a greatest hits album called Keep the Faith and then in 1994, they released ‘Cross Road’ which included some new material along with their old hit singles. The album was a hit, especially in Europe and the UK.

In the early 2000s, Bon Jovi continued to tour and write new music. They also released a number of DVDs and live albums. Bon Jovi has a long-standing partnership with Sony BMG. This relationship has yielded many hit albums and has resulted in numerous international tours.
