i first met bon jovi back in 86 when they were opening up for judas priest just before the release of slippery , a girl i met at one of my shows introduced me to them,jon was impressed that i cover,d some of his songs in my set and i told him i was a fan from as way back as there first album,we spoke for about an hour about the music business and had a couple of beers together,one of the things that sticks in my mind was that they just finished recording slippery in vancouver and spent alot of money on the album and if it did,nt take off the band might break up, i met him a couple of times after that and brought up that story from back then,as we all know that album skyrocketed and made the the superstars they are today

Danny:

It's not only the music business that's in a mess.

So do you write your own songs? What's your process? Any albums?

Looking forward to hearing more.

P.S. Lived in Montreal during summers years ago. Love that city!

This is amazingly interesting. First, did you find the band has changed over the years and in effect did fame change them? And second, is the messup with the music bus that is has gotten less creative and more about the $$$ or is it the players/performers that are partying too hard and getting too messed up?

you know what t02nj people have their on days and off days also ive met alot of celebrities and they seem to forget its the fans who make them what they are, hey if i had tons of people stopping me every 2 seconds to ask for an autograph or picture id probably get pretty overwelmed,as for the music industry i think its gone in the can,i can probably count on one hand an artist in the last 10 years who have reached superstardom and as for partying too hard thats what messed up my music carreer

Oh I so believe you are right about the bombardment of fans and not knowing who is approaching you for you or the 'star'. It is so true when they say fame is a double edged sword. I'm sorry that the excess hurt your music career but if you are passionate about it don't go after it as a career but for the love of music. I think the 'business' has lost sight of that. Music is art and expression. Sure it may pay bills for some and not for others (yours truly included) but if i stopped writing, stopped thinking and dreaming...it would be the end of me. Keep at it and yes please tell us more about your band!

Art and business have a strange relationship sometimes, I think lately there's been too much emphasis on money. You can see it in Hollywood--too many sequal movies, not enough original stuff. I'm a visual artist and I'm running into it myself. I can just imagine the music busines is full of that stuff too. But I think you are totally right TO2NJ--you need to keep on working in your art because of your passion for it. More power to you! And I will keep doing the same--I'm too passionate about painting to stop, it's too deep a part of me now. And no matter what else I'm doing, it's always in the back of my mind.

I think it's really easy for creative people to end up partying too hard--that happens to a lot of people I know too. Have you started again? Do you think you will?
