Yes, dear reader, Bon Jovi is having a year.
Two weeks ago it was a performance on the “Late Show With Stephen Colbert;” next week the band resumes their North American tour in Denver; and next month: induction into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame, where they will be introduced by… their longtime pal… Howard Stern.
A reminder of the band’s impact and legacy: They have:
• Sold over 100 million records, world-wide. One of the best-selling American rock bands ever.
• Released 22 albums: 13 studio, six compilations, and three live.
• Performed more than 2,700 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 34 million fans.
2016’s “This House Is Not For Sale” (their most recent album) is being re-issued, with two new songs, including “When We Were Us” –they still got it, and the song rocks–in a grown-up kind of way.
