Yeah, wishing death on someone ... even a singing hairdo (as one of my friends calls him) ... puts you on Santa's naughty list for sure.

You're getting no more than a lump of coal in your stocking, madforit.

1.There isn't a God.
2. Bon Jovi's time will come.
3. If you're going to take friendly snarks against U2 personally, there's a forum right over yonder for you.

Do you think if someone reminded Bon Jovi that U2 had to cancel a whole bunch of shows so that Bono could get spinal surgery, he'd be gloating so much?

I also wonder if he mentioned anything about stealing U2's stage...

That too.

But then again, when you take into account ACDC placing 3rd, you realize that list has absolutely nothing to do with musical relevance either way.


And my last point, because I really dont care all that much: U2 came in second by playing only 22 shows. I wonder how many Bon Jovi played (12 in London alone plus North America, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. Seems like a case of quantity over quality, but I clearly just hate Bon Jovi)



Edit: It's actually right there in the first paragraph. 69 shows to U2's 22. Fuck you Bon Jovi

This didn't include the Down Under leg for U2, and Bon Jovi played more than 3x as many shows, if I remember correctly U2's attendance still might have been higher. He should also note that this is only 1 portion of a 3 year tour. Next year when 360 is the biggest tour of all time I bet he'll remain silent.

Speaking of Bon Jovi, Jon just got appointed to a White House Council of some sort:

Jon Bon Jovi appointed to White House council | Music | guardian.co.uk

I'm really indifferent to Bon Jovi, with the following exception: watching all the fists in a bar go into the air during the "WHOOOOAAAA-OHHHH" part of "Livin' on a Prayer" never fails to make me laugh.

My favorite random Livin' On a Prayer moment -

some years ago I went to see an ABBA tribute band (Bjorn Again; they were awesome), and in the set break, the ladies went back stage to change, and the men kicked into Livin' On a Prayer.

I can't lie - it was both hilarious and AWESOME.

I love how you'll gladly talk about how awesome a moment was at an ABBA tribute band... playing BJ no less!


I was at the Patriots/Lions Thanksgiving game in 2002 and Bon Jovi played the halftime show, it was the first season of Ford Field and the show used pyrotechnics, they clearly hadn't thought ahead about clearing the smoke and the whole upper deck was obscured in a haze for the second half, you could even hear them turning on a lot of vents to attempt to suck it out/make it dissipate it. Priceless.
