A portrait of a man who has become a rock legend. Jon Bon Jovi is Bon Jovi's focus and figurehead and this volume charts his relationship with the other band members who have their fair share of rock and roll stories. Laura Jackson explores the personality, character, drive and determination that has taken Jon Bon Jovi from playing the New Jersey clubs through all the groupie excess and glamorous indulgence to where the band is in 2003. She also examines Jon Bon Jovi's interest in acting and scoring music for Hollywood films.

British celebrity biographer Jackson (Paul Simon; Queen; Ewan McGregor) presents an enthusiastic sketch of one of New Jersey’s favorite sons, né John Francis Bongiovi, in this detailed but speculative volume. Jackson traces the rock star’s journey from his childhood in working class Sayreville through his early years in the music business as "a ‘nobody’ who had to make his demos during the odd hours of the early morning when no one else required the facilities," to the pre-record label, pre-name change recording of his first hit "Runaway," and then through his multi-platinum albums, his legendary lengthy marriage, his bouts with burnout and professional failure, his excursions into acting and his return to the top of the music charts. This isn’t a complete biography, but ardent Bon Jovi fans who aren’t concerned with less than perfect grammatical styling, overly dramatic passages and the odd intrusion of British-isms (such as "mum" for "mother") should appreciate this satisfying addition to the singer’s memorabilia.
