Bon Jovi’s latest album, 2020, was released in October 2020 through Island Records.
Over an illustrious career spanning more than three decades since their formation in 1983, Bon JoviI has earned their place among global rock royalty and was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame as well as the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. With over 130 million albums sold worldwide, an extensive catalog of hit anthems, thousands of concerts performed in more than 50 countries for more than 35 million fans and ticket grosses well over $1 billion around the world in the last decade alone, Bon Jovi is the consummate rock and roll band.
I’ve seen several recent clips of bon jovi ,
His voice is shot , not quite as bad as Paul stanley but pretty weird sounding , since Paul and Jon are friends I fully expect bon Jovi will be taking a page from the KISS play book of lip syncing , (Tico is awesome and can easily play to a click track) but I hope he doesnt, hopefully jon has some integrity and decides to sing live and do the best he can …
I have no clue about Jon’s voice, since the last time I actually saw the band live, they were celebrating the opening of the new Giants stadium, which I think was called Met Life stadium at that point?
But despite not seeing them live, I do know Phil X is a beast. I have seen many of his clips online of his covers (Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, etc.) and he is really great. He can play, sing, super talented.
Here are a few examples: Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love, Eruption/Unchained, Highway Star and Black Dog.
No disrespect and nothing against Phil X, I know he’s a great guitarist, but without Sambora, there is no Bon Jovi, not for me. As far as Jon’s voice, it hasn’t been the same in over 20 years, combine that with this Dylan trip he’s been on, all I can say is thank God for those first 5 albums! Sure there’s been some good songs here and there since “Keep The Faith,” but not many, and 2020? Not only is that BJ’s worst album inside and out (IMO) but it is one of the worst and most depressing albums of all time, way to “keep the faith,” Jon.
I am looking at Phil X as Phil X, not as Sambora’s replacement. It was the same for me with Hagar when he joined Van Halen. I judge Sammy on his own material, or Montrose, not Van Hagar.
For me, the difference is Sammy made alot of great music during his time in VH, X is a great musician, but I really haven’t heard any great music from the 2 BJ albums that he’s played on, there was 1 or 2 songs I liked from “This House Is Not For Sale,” but nothing from “2020.” I would love to hear X outside of BJ, I think BJ is just holding him back, back from his strengths.
Again, that is what I wrote, I judge Phil X solely on his solo material, not Bon Jovi.
Robert, I last saw BJ perform about 4 years ago….John’s voice sucked then, I’m sure his voice is worse now…..but, my wife loves BJ, so I’m sure we would attend a concert if it came to our San Diego area……
I need to check out his material outside of BJ, all of it, he should record a new solo album, free of politics, leave that crap to Jon Bon Dylan.
Totally agree Dana, Phil X is just amazing. He plays and sings black dog like no one i’ve ever seen.
Not a big Bon Jovi fan al all, but without Richie Sambora it really is not Bon Jovi…it’s the Jon Bon Jovi show at this point.
And the last time i heard Jon sing was after Biden won the election and they had that concert on TV…Jon sounded extremely odd…
“Won” the election? Have A Nice Day…
My, how time flies. I saw them once, opening for Tatt in 1985. After 2 songs, every female in the first 10 rows crowd rushed, shrieking. I said to my buddy who came with me these guys are going to rule the world.
I think you mean Ratt? If you need me to change this typo, let me know. Unless you are referring to another band?
I’m glad bands of the 80s era are still out there doing what they love. Having never been in a band, I don’t really know the dynamics of why some members leave a band or get fired. I’ve read many a biography and autobiography but there must be a good reason why Sambora is not in the band anymore. And Jon shouldn’t have to quit recording and performing because he can’t keep the original band together. As for his voice, as long as he gives it all he’s got, I’m okay with what age does to a voice. But like what was said in other posts: no singing to pre-recorded tracks.
