Bon Jovi demo leak scam

Some loser has set up a Youtube channel, Hardrocknews and uploaded songs claiming to be from a new Bon Jovi album called "Dangerous Curves" to be released in February 2009. There is a fake album cover and the tracks are "Another Lonely Day", "If I Had a Heart", "Thinkin' About You feat. Joe Elliott" (not really), "Sweet 16", "Another Girl", and "My Country 'Tis of Thee". Everyone should know first of all that there has been no album announced for February 2009. The fact that they claim this new album marks the return of former bassist Alec John Such should be enough to prove it's rubbish anyway.

Secondly, THE SONGS ARE BY AN ARTIST NAMED JOHNNY LIMA. There are so many of these hoax demos floating around the internet. The vocalist generally sounds just enough like Jon Bon Jovi to fool enough people but to the seasoned diehard's ears you can easily tell it's not.

Some of these lesser known artists cite Bon Jovi as an influence, but I'm not sure how I would feel if someone was claiming my work to be someone else's. I guess that's how some people get their kicks.


  1. Hopefully no one will fall for it. In places the guy's voice resembles Jon's but that's it. My husband said straight away "that ain't JBJ".

    He only listened to a few seconds. I thought the cover was pathetic and the music too 80's. No way Bon Jovi would have that cover and that sound now.

  2. Unfortunately, as I am still undergoing reconstruction after a double mastectomy last year due to breast cancer, I cannot use the two tickets I bought for a night with Jon Bon Jovi & The Philadelphia Soul, the 2008 Arena Bowl champions. With permission from the Soul, I donated them to a worthwhile charity -- if you are interested in them, please go to:
    This Private Dinner Party will be exclusively held for 200 guests, members of the Philadelphia Soul Football Team and hosted by Jon Bon Jovi. It's intimate, it's up close and personal, and it's an opportunity to experience a Priceless Moment!
    Your bid is for two VIP Special Guest Passes for an event to take place on: February 26, 2008 at the Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia, 1113-31 Market Street,(corner of 12th and Market Steet) Philadelphia, PA 19107. This Event will not go on sale to the public. This is a private invitation-only event.


Thanks for giving me your time.
