 Jon Bon Jovi Rocks Through the Pain

If the name Jon Bon Jovi still brings to mind big hair, leather pants, and "Livin' on a Prayer," well it's time to fast forward about 25 years. The lead singer of the legendary Jersey pop metal band Bon Jovi is now nearly 50 years old and has just taken on a new gig … as an Advil spokesperson. (Hey, ever meet someone approaching the big 5-0 who doesn't have a few aches and pains?)

The makers of Advil hooked up with Jon after he injured his calf muscle while performing on stage last year and he later revealed in an interview that he relies on the pain reliever to get through the inevitable discomfort that comes with a job that frequently involves singing and dancing at stadium-sized performances.

"I'm sort of an athlete, up on stage," Jon said during a behind-the-scenes interview for the 30-second TV ad, which was shot at the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Kitchen, a community kitchen in Red Bank, New Jersey, which provides meals to those in need.

"Life's a juggling act, you've got to make time and balance everything simultaneously, and make it look easy. It's anything but easy," said the rocker, who's been married to his high school sweetheart, Dorothea, for 22 years, is dad to four kids, and an avid runner.

Jon joins Regis and Joy Philbin, who shared their Advil story in October. And for you young folks who can't imagine having to deal with knee pain or back aches, just wait 30 years … when Justin Bieber realizes that he can't bop around like he used to.

Yep, Jon was there...

I have to add a disclaimer.  Normally I would NEVER post a picture of the man's family (we all know how he feels about his family the the paps).  But, he chose to bring them and to let them be photographed, so I am sharing the pic.  Not that you all haven't seen it already anyway, but there it is.

I am and always have been a Bon Jovi fan. This blog is just my obsession taken a step further, my imagination in high gear if you will. I love to read and decided to see what would happen when I took that love of the written word and ramped it up a bit.
