Bon Jovi Biography

Bon Jovi is an American rock band from Sayreville, New Jersey. It was formed in 1983 by lead singer Jon Bon Jovi, pianist and keyboardist David Bryan, drummer Tico Torres, lead guitarist Phil X and bassist Hugh McDonald. The line-up changed when they dismissed bassist Alec John Such in 1994 and when longtime guitarist and co-songwriter Richie Sambora left in 2013.

Bon Jovi released their eponymous debut album in 1984, generating a top 40 hit with the original version of "Runaway". The following year, "7800 Fahrenheit" was released and went gold. The projects were a prelude to the band's 1986 breakthrough set, "Slippery When Wet". Supported by several appealing, straightforward videos that received heavy rotation on MTV, the record took off on the strength of "You Give Love a Bad Name", followed quickly by "Livin' on a Prayer" and "Wanted Dead or Alive". Those three top 10 hits helped propel "Slippery When Wet" to sales of nine million in the U.S. alone, establishing Bon Jovi as superstars in their home country. The album also turned into a significant hit in Europe, Canada, Japan and Australia.
