What I've learnt: Jon Bon Jovi on fame, family and life on the road

Some interesting/amusing tidbits from Jon via the Times Online, such as:
If I wasn’t a rock star, I’d be the ringmaster in a circus.
The best book I’ve ever read is The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. It gets to the core of what we’re doing here. I’m not really driven by possessions, and the nomadic lifestyle has something to do with that. You realise you can live out of a bag and the rest of the stuff is fun to play with, but not necessary.
But I think my favourite is:
I want the Beatles’ In My Life played at my funeral. You don’t want something upbeat. I’ll be dead, for God’s sake, I don’t want anyone else to be happy. I’m going to make ’em all pay for the bonus at the end, which is my estate. They’re going to have to suffer for hours. I want Catholic guilt and misery.
You can read the full article here, ignoring the part where they wrongly referred to 7800 Fahrenheit as Bon Jovi's first album.

  1. That's a great article! I love: "I don’t get tired of singing Livin’ on a Prayer. Not when I see the jet with my name on it." lol :)


Thanks for giving me your time.
