Bon Jovi is considered to be one of the most well-known American rock bands.  Bon Jovi, which is fronted by Jon Bon Jovi, lead singer (born John Francis Bongiovi), is from New Jersey.  The current members of the band are Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, Tico Torres, who plays the drums, David Bryan, the keyboardist and Hugh McDonald.  However, this last one is not considered to be an official member of Bon Jovi.  In addition, Alec John Such and Dave “the Snake” Sabo were former members of the band.  It can be said that this group became a great-dimension band in the 80’s.

At this time, Bon Jovi was a consolidated band, which released its debut album, which went gold in 1984.  Amazingly, before their disc was launched, they opened for ZZ Top at the Madison Square Garden.  One year later, they released their second album called 7800 Fahrenheit, but it was not as successful as it was believed to be.  The follow-up album titled Slippery When Wet and was launched in 1986 and included the hits “Living On a Prayer”, “You Give Love a Bad Name” and “Wanted Dead or Alive.”  This disc sold more than 12 million copies.  Two years after, New Jersey, their fourth disc, was released.

Thus, in the 90’s, Bon Jovi decided to take a break, and once they came back, they launched three successful albums: Keep the Faith (1992), Cross Road, a “greatest hits” disc (1994) and These Days (1995).  They started the 2000s with an album that became worldwide famous titled Crush, comprising hits such as “Say It Isn’t So”.  Despite Bounce, which is the follow-up album of Crush, did not get to be as successful as Bon Jovi’s previous release, it produced the hits “Misunderstood” and “Everyday.”  Since that time, This Left Feels Right (2003), Have a Nice Day (2005) and Live from the Have a Nice Day (January, 2006) were launched.  Among the awards the band has received, the Diamond Award at the World Music Awards for selling 100,000,000 albums, the American Music Award, the MTV Europe Music Award for Best Rock and Brit Award for Best International Band are outstanding.  Thus, Bon Jovi is considered to be, without a doubt, among the most successful bands in music history of all times.
