(huge) differences apart, if he's anything like my father (pisces, CEO of a company, with some amount of public attention, father of 4 kids, the eldest a daughter, married for 30 years, etc), then his attitude makes perfect sense to me. There's one thing called public image and these people know how to handle it to perfection. I was even surprised that he kept on talking about it, and the fact that it was so sugar coated also made perfect sense. we'll probably never know how he trully feels about this.

lets think, up until the Bongiovi's moved to nyc We rarely saw the kids in photos unless they were at soul games in the box. This was a caclulated mov by both parents, to keep them out of the ugliness and glamour of fame.
So what makes you think hes ever going to spill his guts to a reporter, when he rarely even shows them to the public.
He not going to say how him and his wife probably cried all night, after the incident. Or how he or f hes sending his daughter to a shrink. He probably cant even fully understand how that baby he brought home in 93 was unresponsive with Emts and cops around her 19 years later.
The fact is, no parent is ever ready for this, in a normal sitiution. And asking him to fully put his deepest fears and feelings about his baby girl, is really stupid. He probably cant yet or just wont.
Maybe in a few years he may express his feelings in a song lyric or two but right now? NEVER! Hes just touching the subject because he knows he cant avoid it, it was all over the world. But hes very private.

I think given time, he actually will do something to promote drug prevention with youth or help with funding to provide rehab to underserved communities. It is a wake up call that it can happen to any family and I am sure he will realize that there are a lot of families without resources to deal with these issues, and many youth who do not have support systems to help them.
