matt770 Posted November 23, 2009 Share Posted November 23, 2009 I'm not going to elevate the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to say, the NFL or MLB HOFs, but if they induct Bon Jovi, it will greatly diminish their credibility in my opinion. And I was blown away by what Jon-Bon said on the Today Show last week when asked about being inducted. Video is entitled Bon Jovi: ‘No ground rules’ on documentary about a quarter of the way down. We intend to be [inducted], because in all honesty, we'd like to be part of Elvis' and the Beatles' and the Stone's history. And we've sold a lot of records and influenced another generation of fans, and the music has got staying power. The Songwriter's Hall of Fame was really quite a compliment this year and hopefully the band will be in the Rock Hall next. Are you f'n kidding me???? To even mention yourself in the same sentence as the greatest artists of all time -- dude, stop thinking that women shrieking at you equates with credibility. We all know how hard you work, you mention it every chance you get. You even wrote a song about it, complete with a video where you look exhausted on your tour bus. I thought that was ridiculous, but it doesn't compare to openly lobbying for the highest honor your industry can bestow. Granted I've always thought he was a complete tool, but I will concede he has talent. He made some nice radio songs in the 80's and who doesn't miss the chicks in tight jeans and suede boots and 10-inch hair? But someone show me the great groundbreaking albums he wrote that challenged or progressed the genre. Give me a break, seriously. [/rant] Here's a review that talks about his HOF posturing.
