Jon Bon Jovi is one of the most famous rock bands of all time. He and his band have sold more than 120 million albums worldwide. He has also had a long running career in movies and TV shows. Bon Jovi is also a philanthropist and has helped to raise funds for several different charities. He has also worked to promote the growth of his own musical genre, power ballads.
He has had some big hits, like “Livin’ on a Prayer,” which peaked at number one on the US charts. Another popular song was “Runaway,” which reached number three on the charts. His biggest hit came in 1986 with the album Slippery When Wet, which was a huge hit worldwide. The album was bolstered by the hit singles, “You Give Love a Bad Name,” and “Wanted Dead or Alive.” Bon Jovi topped the album charts for six weeks and was considered as successful as Michael Jackson’s Thriller in terms of sales.
The band went on to release more albums, including Always, which was a top five hit in the United States. It also produced the hit singles, “Livin’ on a Prayer,” and “Who Says You Can’t Go Home.” Bon Jovi has remained active with his band, though he has had some solo success as well, including 1997’s Destination Anywhere. He reformed the band in 2002 and has since released many more albums.
