Totally an opinionated question, but over the course of their 20 some years in the industry, I'm sure BJ has influenced the sound and spirit of other bands or individual artists. In your opinion, who do you think has the "gusto" to go the Jovi distance and become one of the next great rock bands? Also, who's sound do you think is most similar to that of Bon Jovi?

I, myself, would have to say that back in the hey day, the band Trixter was greatly influenced by BJ. I think that they were from NJ and had a really close sound to the boys.

Today, I would have to say that bands like Nickelback and Hinder are really reminding me of the boys. The first time I heard Hinder's music, they immediately came to mind.

I agree with Hinder. Definitely influenced them. Also, The All American Rejects kind of remind me of Jovi too.
