While on the road with Jovi He's head of security for Jon isn't he? He is in charge of fan club too (I think)

I don't like him. He is rude, arrogant and self-important. His behavior to fans on Twitter is atrocious. He is a bad representation of the Bon Jovi camp. It really bothers me to see so many fans suck up to him on Twitter even though he doesn't treat them with respect. The only reason he has that job is because he is Jon's brother...and because the fans put Jon where he is today.
That's all I have to say about him.

Jose and Teri: Matt is in charge of the fan club. That's it.

This sums up my thoughts perfectly!

He is in charge of band security on the road, Terri is correct.

Really? I thought their head of security was a guy named Knut (don't know the last name). I remember that from the On the Road videos from the Lost Highway tour. Knut was also seen in the When We Were Beautiful documentary. He received a SWW necklace from the band at MSG.
So, for all I know, Matt might help out with security but he is not "in charge" of it. Unless Knut doesn't work for the band anymore and Matt took over. That would be a bad idea though..security needs to be handled by someone with years of experience and training not a family member.

He is now head of security. He started from The Circle tour and has continued onto this tour. You will see Matt now at the stage, watching Jon.

Thanks for clearing that up.
I don't get this at all. Jon can afford the best of the best, yet he hires his brother who has little to no experience... Good for Matt, I guess: He gets a great well-paid job without having the needed qualifications. He has made a career from riding his older brother's coattails.
I just hope nothing happens to Jon and the band as a result of this.

If people don't like Matt for whatever reason that's one thing but I think it is highly unlikely for Jon to put people in danger with inexperience staff.

Hopefully he will do a better job at security than the last job his big brother gave him.

Matt has worked Bon Jovi tours in different manager and security roles off and on since These Days in major capacities and in minor capacities before then. He is educated and trained with years of experience now and fully capable.

Knute is still head of security for the tour/venues.

I find it comical Matt acting like he's protecting the President during concerts, when all someone wants to do is hug Jon or the others...well maybe a little more in some cases ;)

Wonder if John Lennon would think that was funny? Just read the haters on this board alone.

I don't think Matt just waltzed into the position with no training and no qualifications. He is not just standing there, thinking what the heck do I do if something happens? There are other guys around him too. They know what they are doing.

Do you honestly think that any one on this board would resort to murder? I see alot of different opionins but never nothing that sounds like someone is full of hate.

If Matt cannot carry out his gaurd dog duties and keep his cool any better than he can on twitter he better get big brother to find him another job.

I don't have any idea what crazy people would do or will do. No one does, kinda what makes them crazy.

So what would you consider crazy behavior on this board? Give a example please. I often run across people here that do not agree with me. I even consider some of them to be a pain in the ass at times. But I don't think any of them are crazy or about to commit murder.
