How Bon Jovi's David Bryan got to Broadway with MEMPHIS

There's a great article about Dave and Memphis in the Columbus Dispatch:
The road to Memphis - just announced to tour Columbus next season - was a long one for musician David Bryan.

"It took me eight years to get to Broadway, so for me it doesn’t feel like an explosion. It feels like a slow burn," Bryan said.

A founding musician with Bon Jovi who continues to tour with the gold-record group, Bryan made his Broadway debut last season as composer of the bluesy and rockin' score of the 2010 Tony winner for best musical.

So how did a guy who grew up in New Jersey, studied classical music for 15 years, played in a 10-piece band as a teenager and toured the world as a rocker wind up winning the 2010 Tony award for best score in his Broadway debut?

Check out the full story here.
