Bon Jovi Lays it Down 
in San Jose

Over 30 years of Rock n' Roll in One Sweet Night

What a night at SAP!  You knew it was going to be a solid show, but really, nowadays, let's face it, some of our longtime favorite rock bands just go through the motions, churning out the hits uninspired. Not so, with Bon Jovi. With vitality, vigor and crowd pleasing swagger, Jon Bon Jovi and company made us all feel like family in the Church of Rock n' Roll. With a set of 24 songs and over 2 hours on stage, there was something for every fan, even with the curious omission of Runaway, the song that first put them on the map back in '84.

Even though I personally miss guitarist Richie Sambora, Phil X (his replacement since 2013) delivered as did the rest of the band...they owned the crowd. San Jose rock audiences are known for their enthusiasm, and yeah, we ate it all up!  Fun to see a wide range of ages at the show... the touch of modern mixed with nostalgia revealed itself when the cell phone flashlights lit up replacing the bic lighters of years gone by. 

One final thought...I love Jon Bon Jovi. Yeah, we all know he's sexy as hell, but truly, his sincerity and humility is endearing. He expressed profound gratitude and appreciation for his fans several times throughout the show ~ you just couldn't help feelin' the love. As a life long fan, I'm also a great admirer of his work to combat hunger and homelessness throughout the United States with his foundation:  JBJ Soul Foundation The guy walks the talk and rocks the house!

Gotta love his rock n' roll heart and soul~he's a Rock Star through and through.

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.
