Bon Jovi, “I just can’t quit ya”


So here’s the thing…

Back when I started writing about Bon Jovi in 2009, it was for the love of the music, the incredibly talented members of the band, and the positive impact their music has had on my life.

Over the years, I’ve had periods where I’ve had to walk away; where I’ve thrown my hands up in frustration or boredom or I’ve just been sick and tired of the fan drama and the side-taking and the Kool Aid swilling.

Recently, I did walk away. I got tired of all the hullabaloo about Jon and Richie and all the shadow-boxing that has been going on since the Tall Dark Duke walked from the band; and like him, I bailed.

There’s just one small problem with that.

Bon Jovi has never quit me, never quit us the fans…and to take a much-used quote from the Jake Gyllenhall-Heath Ledger movie ‘Brokeback Mountain’, “I just can’t quit ya Bon Jovi”.

Once upon a time not so long ago, I wrote positive articles about the band and endured the criticism from other fans who said all I ever did was write one-sided, biased, positive stuff!

You know what?  There is enough ugly in this world so this little piece of musical paradise is going to go back to why I started writing about them in the first place:  for the love and appreciation I have as a fan for the relentless musicianship of Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, David Bryan, and Tico Torres.

For the love of Bon Jovi.

Blame it on the love of rock and roll, but there will be no bad juju in this space going forward.

Now all I have to do is find a way to get back the 700 people I dropped on Facebook and the countless hundred other readers I had on Twitter.
