Jon Bon Jovi is the quintessential rock star. As Bon Jovis dynamic front man and an acclaimed solo artist, he has sold more than 100 million records and helped forge the sound of a generation. Laura Jacksons candid biography is an all-access pass to a fascinating rags-to-riches story, and an inside look at the making of a legend. Born John Francis Bongiovi, Jon grew up in a tightknit working-class family in Sayreville, New Jersey. His early influences included Elton John and Thin Lizzy, but it was local heroes like Bruce Springsteen and Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes who inspired his belief that he, too, could make a living playing the music he loved. At eighteen, Jon moved to New York City to work at the famed Power Station recording studio. Over the next two years he wrote and recorded dozens of demos, one of which, Runaway, led to interest from record companies. Jon finally signed with Polygrams Mercury Records, and then set about forming a band that included keyboardist and high school friend David Rashbraum, bass player Alec John Such, drummer Tico Torres, and lead guitarist Richie Sambora. Bon Jovi was ready to take on the world.
