Bon Jovi: The Story

Brian Reesman Book On New Jersey Rocker Jon Bon Jovi

Brian Reesman Book On New Jersey Rocker Jon Bon JoviBefore Jon Bon Jovi became a wilting, silver-haired former pinup living on past glories; before Jon Bon Jovi was relegated to nostalgia-themed cable television advertisements; before the band Bon Jovi became a glorified solo project desperate to latch onto the current adult-contemporary country music scene, Bon Jovi was part of rock 'n' roll's elite. Now the band's meteoric rise from the streets of New Jersey to the world's largest stages has been captured in a gorgeous, well written coffee table book.

Although illustrated throughout with famous and rare photos from throughout the band's 30-plus year career, Bon Jovi: The Story is a top-notch biography. Thoroughly researched and composed by noted pop culture journalist Brian Reesman, the book features more than 35 new interviews with early band members, Judas Priest's Rob Halford, rock historian Eddie Truck and many more. Although a celebration of the band's career, this book is not a safe, sugar-coated cash in. Devoid of exclusive band interviews or band member endorsements, this book is a reverent warts and all examination of what is perhaps the biggest band to emerge from the Garden State and the numerous obstacles its members were forced to endure and overcome on their way to international super-stardom. Reesman also does not shy away from the band's recent acrimonious split with the band's heart and soul Richie Sambora.

Bon Jovi: The Story is a must for Bon Jovi fans, classic hard rock fans, rock biographies enthusiasts and those who simply enjoy damn good rock and roll journalism. Highly Recommended.
