Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet: Happy 25th Anniversary !!!

Hi all!


Today (18 August) is the 25th anniversary of a classic album: Slippery When Wet

Not only Bon Jovi's most succesful album to date (more than 28 million copies worldwide, making it the #21 best seller album of all times) but one of the greatest, biggest hard rock albums ever

At the time the album spent 8 weeks #1 on Billboard Top 200

Share your memories about this great album!

Happy anniversary

It was definitely one of my favs when I was a kid. I'm sure I still have the cassette tape sitting around somewhere at my parents' house.

I've always been a fan of Bon Jovi , but until about the last year or so, I'd only heard Crush. Finally got around to the self titled, New Jersey and Slippery When Wet. When I heard SWW, I was kind of surprised by how much I didn't like it. The singles are great, obviously, if you're into Bon Jovi, but the other material was way weak. Then I hear New Jersey and I just really liked everything about it.

It was great at the time, but it dated itself very quickly. I remember even thinking that it sounded "old" around '89 or so, before grunge had even started.
