The Day I Met a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer…
One of the most successful rock bands of all time, Bon Jovi, will soon take the stage in Cleveland as part of their induction ceremony to the iconic Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Bon Jovi has sold over 130 million records worldwide and the band still sells out just about every stadium they play in. To this day, their infectious songs are a big part of Lite Rock's playlist.
I had the awesome opportunity to meet Bon Jovi and the band back in the mid 90's at the legendary Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey, while I was working for another station at the Jersey Shore.
After the show, I went up to the man himself to mention how much I loved the band's new record, Always, and we were playing it all the time. His response? "Of course you should be playing the song, you're from New Jersey!" He then flashed his big infamous smile and thanked us for the support.
Want your own Bon Jovi experience of a lifetime? We're giving you the opportunity to see Bon Jovi live from the FRONT ROW in sunny Orlando, Florida! By the way, this will be the band's first live appearance after being inducted to the Rand Roll Hall of Fame!
Congratulations to New Jersey's own Bon Jovi!
