Jon Bon Jovi


Jon Francis Bongiovi, más conocido como Jon Bon Jovi, nace en 1962 en Perth Amboy, New Jersey. Su madre, una antigua miss, intenta adentrarle en el mundo de la música, pero el tema no le atrae hasta varios años después, tras asistir a algunos conciertos.

Comienza a tocar en una banda de rythm 'n' blues, 'Atlantic City Expressway', conocida en el ambiente musical de New Jersey. Aquí conoce a Dave Bryan, con quien colaborará después en proyectos de mayor calado.

Unos años después, Jon entró en el grupo 'The Rest', pero problemas con el jefe del grupo hacen que lo deje al poco tiempo.

Entonces decide irse a Nueva York, a trabajar a unos conocidos estudios de grabación. Aquí tiene la posibilidad de ver grabar a los más grandes artistas del momento y aprender de ellos. Consigue grabar una maqueta con un tema, 'Runaway', que tiempo después sería un gran éxito.

Junto a Dave Bryan crea un grupo, 'Wild Ones', que resultó ser un fracaso en sus actuaciones en directo y que no fue capaz de conseguir el patrocinio de ninguna discográfica.

Gracias al éxito de 'Runaway', Polygram se fijó en Jon y le hizo un gran contrato, dándole libertad absoluta para contratar a los músicos que deseara para un nuevo grupo. Entonces se puso en contacto con David Bryan y contrataron a Alen John Such, Tico Torres, como batería, y Richie Sambora como guitarrista.

 El primer disco, 'Bon Jovi', salió en 1984, y el primer single fue precisamente 'Runaway', su primer éxito. Consiguieron un notable resultado en ventas, a pesar de ser un grupo de rock duro, menos acostumbrados a vender.

El segundo disco, '7800º Fahrenheit' tuvo un resultado más discreto y hubo que esperar al tercer álbum, 'Slippery When Wet', para ver el triunfo definitivo del grupo. Con este trabajo consiguieron llegar al número uno de las listas de éxitos y propició una gira de más de un año por todo el mundo.

 En 1988 publican 'New Jersey', una repetición de la fórmula empleada en el disco anterior y que les sirvió para repetir con un rotundo éxito.

En 1990 sale a la luz 'Blaze Of Glory', la banda sonora de la película 'Arma Joven', con la que Jon optó al Oscar de Hollywood y con el que ganó el premio al mejor single de los premios Award.

 En 1991, tras cambiar de mánager, publican 'Keep The Faith', un nuevo éxito para el grupo, llegando nuevamente a ser número uno y quizás el mejor del grupo. El ritmo se endureció un poco y las letras maduraron.

 Después de ello, han publicado un disco recopilatorio, 'Crossroad', y un disco de estudio, 'These Days'. Sus últimos trabajos hasta la fecha han sido 'Destination Anywhere' y 'Crush'.

 En 2002 publican un nuevo álbum, titulado 'Bounce'. 12 nuevas composiciones, tanto baladas como temas rockeros, hacen uso de la narrativa y música de éxitos anteriores del grupo. Grabado en el Estado natal del grupo, Nueva Jersey, el altamente esperado "Bounce" muestra a Jon Bon Jovi y a Richie Sambora como productores junto a Luke Ebbin, el cual produjo "Crush", disco que fue doble platino en USA y que vendió más de 8 millones de copias en todo el mundo.

It's My Life - Crush

This ain't a song for the broken-hearted

No silent prayer for the faith-departed

I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd

You're gonna hear my voice

When I shout it out loud

It's my life

It's now or never

I ain't gonna live forever

I just want to live while I'm alive

(It's my life)

My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said I did it my way

I just wanna live while I'm alive

It's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground

For Tommy and Gina who never backed down

Tomorrow's getting harder make no mistake

Luck ain't even lucky

Got to make your own breaks

It's my life

And it's now or never

I ain't gonna live forever

I just want to live while I'm alive

(It's my life)

My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said I did it my way

I just want to live while I'm alive

'Cause it's my life

Better stand tall when they're calling you out

Don't bend, don't break, baby, don't back down

It's my life

And it's now or never

'Cause I ain't gonna live forever

I just want to live while I'm alive

(It's my life)

My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said I did it my way

I just want to live while I'm alive

It's my life

And it's now or never

'Cause I ain't gonna live forever

I just want to live while I'm alive

(It's my life)

My heart is like an open highway

Like Frankie said I did it my way

I just want to live while I'm alive

'Cause it's my life!

Say It Isn't So - Crush

There's no Santa Claus

It was all a lie

No man in the moon

Just a big light in the sky

I hear Disneyland

Might lose Mickey Mouse

In some giant hostile corporate shake-up

Tell me it's a nightmare

Please wake me up

(Say it isn't so)

I found a book of matches

From someplace we've never been

How come you hang the phone up

The minute I walk in

Last night I had this dream

That I was losing you

I woke up in a cold sweat shaking

Rescue me my heart is breaking

Say it isn't so (tell me it's not true)

Say it isn't so (I believe in you)

Tell me it's a lie (I don't need no proof)

They did it all with strings

Say everything's alright (couldn't be, not you)

Say it isn't so

Superman don't fly

Elvis Presley died

They deep fried the king

Like some tacky cheesy bathing beauty

Dancing on the beach in a bad b-movie

Say it isn't so (tell me it's not true)

Say it isn't so (I believe in you)

Tell me it's a lie (I don't need no proof)

Say everything's alright (couldn't be, not you)

Say it isn't so (don't give up on me)

Say it isn't so (don't give up on you)

Get me through the night (we'll make it through)

Make everything alright (couldn't be, not you)

Say it isn't so..

Say it isn't so (tell me it's not true)

Say it isn't so (I believe in you)

Tell me it's a lie (I don't need no proof)

Say everything's alright (couldn't be, not you)

Say it isn't so (don't give up on me)

Say it isn't so (don't give up on you)

Get me through the night (we'll make it through)

Make everything alright (couldn't be, not you)

Say it isn't so.

Thank You For Loving Me - Crush

It's hard for me to say the things

I want to say sometimes

There's no one here but you and me

And that broken old street light

Lock the doors

We'll leave the world outside

All I've got to give to you

Are these five words when I

Thank you for loving me

For being my eyes

When I couldn't see

For parting my lips

When I couldn't breathe

Thank you for loving me

Thank you for loving me

I never knew I had a dream

Until that dream was you

When I look into your eyes

The sky's a different blue

Cross my heart I wear no disguise

If I tried, you'd make believe

That you believed my lies

Thank you for loving me

For being my eyes

When I couldn't see

For parting my lips

When I couldn't breathe

Thank you for loving me

You pick me up when I fall down

You ring the bell before they count me out

If I was drowning you would part the sea

And risk your own life to rescue me

Lock the doors

We'll leave the world outside

All I've got to give to you

Are these five words when I

Thank you for loving me

For being my eyes

When I couldn't see

You parted my lips

When I couldn't breathe

Thank you for loving me

When I couldn't fly

Oh, you gave me wings

You parted my lips

When I couldn't breathe

Thank you for loving me

One Wild Night - Crush

It's a hot night, the natives are restless

We're sweating by the light of the moon

There's a voodoo mojo brewing at the go-go

That could knock a witch off her broom

We slither on in and shed our skin

Make our way into the bump and the grind

So I'm passing by, she gives me the eye

So I stop to give her a light

One wild night (blinded by the moonlight)

One wild night (24 hours of midnight)

One wild night (I stepped into the twilight zone

And she left my heart with vertigo)

One wild, one wild, one wild, one wild night

Havin' as much fun as you can in your clothes

Margarita had me feelin' alright

It just might be that I found religion

I've been on my knees for half of the night

Then I'm rolling the bones with Jimmy 'no dice'

Gonna take him for a couple weeks' pay

Man, if you lose this roll I take your girlfriend home

So I stopped

But you're not gonna believe who comes walking out

One wild night (blinded by the moonlight)

One wild night (24 hours of midnight)

One wild night (I stepped into the twilight zone

And she left my heart with vertigo)

One wild night (hey, c'est la vie)

One wild night (welcome to the party)

One wild night (life is for the living so

You gotta live it up, come on let's go)

One wild, one wild, one wild, one wild night

Guitar solo

One wild night (blinded by the moonlight)

One wild night (24 hours of midnight)

One wild night (I stepped into the twilight zone

And she left my heart with vertigo)

One wild night (hey, c'est la vie)

One wild night (welcome to the party)

One wild night (life if for the living so

You gotta live it up, come on let's go)

One wild, one wild, one wild, one..

One wild night (blinded by the moonlight)

One wild night (24 hours of midnight)

One wild night (I stepped into the twilight zone)

For one wild night One wild night (hey, c'est la vie)

One wild night (welcome to the party)

One wild night (life is for the living)

All we've got is one wild night

One wild night (4x)

One wild night blinded by the moonlight

One wild night 24 hours of midnight

One wild night stepped into the twilight zone for

One wild, one wild, one wild, one wild night.

Undivided

That was my brother lost in the rubble


That was my sister lost in the crush
 

That was our mothers, those were our children
 

That was our fathers, that was each one of us
 

A million prayers to God above
 

A million tears make an ocean of

[Chorus:]


One for love


One for truth


One for me, one for you

I found spirit, they couldn't ruin it
 

I found courage in the smoke and dust
 

I found faith in the songs you silenced
 

Deep down it's ringing out in each of us
 

Yeah... yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Chorus:]
 

One for love
 

One for truth
 

One for me, one for you
 

Where we once were divided, now we stand

 

united
 

We stand as one... undivided.
 

How many hands? How many hearts?
 

How many dreams been torn apart?


Enough, enough... the time has come to rise back

 

as

[Chorus:]
 

One for love
 

One for truth
 

One for me, one for you

Where we once were divided now we stand

 

united
 

We stand as one... undivided.

Undivided.
 

Undivided.

One for love
 

One for truth
 

One for me, one for you
 

Where we once were divided, now we stand

 

united
 

We stand as one... undivided.

 

Everyday

I used to be the kind of guy

 

Who'd never let you look inside

 

I'd smile when I was crying

 

I had nothing but a life to loose

 

Thought I had a lot to proof


In my life, there's no denying


Goodbye to all my yesterdays


Goodbye, so long, I'm on my way

I've had enough of cryin'
 

Bleedin', sweatin', dyin'
 

Hear me when I say
 

Gonna live my life everyday
 

I'm gonna touch the sky
 

And I spread these wings and fly
 

I ain't here to play
 

I'm gonna live my life everyday

Strange, everybody's feeling strange


Never gonna be the same


Makes you wonder how the world keeps turning


Life, learning how to live my life


Learning how to pick my fights


Take my shots while I'm still burning

Goodbye to all those rainy nights


Goodbye, so long, I'm moving on

I've had enough of cryin'


Bleedin', sweatin', dyin'


Hear me when I say


Gonna live my life everyday


I'm gonna touch the sky


And I spread these wings and fly


I ain't here to play


I'm gonna live my life everyday

There ain't nothing gonna get in my way


Everyday

Goodbye, so long, I'm moving on

I've had enough of cryin'


Bleedin', sweatin', dyin'


Hear me when I say


Gonna live my life everyday


I'm gonna touch the sky


And I spread these wings and fly


I ain't here to play


I'm gonna live my life everyday



I, oh I, oh I, I'm gonna live my life everyday


I (gonna touch the sky), oh I (spread these wings

 

and fly), oh I
 

I'm gonna live my life everyday
