Jon Bon Jovi bored by the past
Jon Bon Jovi hates nostalgia.
The Bon Jovi frontman - who is set to embark on a 12-night residency at London's O2 arena - insists the group are always striving to make new music and don't want to rely on old classics such as 'You Give Love A Bad Name'.
He said: "I would be bored to tears to sit here and talk about nostalgia and reunion tours and 'Aw back in the 80s'. Jesus Christ, no no no. That would kill me.
"But we are here talking about my new stuff and that's good."
The 'Livin' On A Prayer Hitmaker' - whose bandmate, guitarist Richie Sambora went through a stint in rebab for alcoholism - also admitted he still drinks a lot, but insists he doesn't have an alcohol problem.
He said: "I still drink. I don't have a problem with drink. I drink too much every day but it has never been a problem.
"If you drink anything, you drink too much. If you drink a few coffees you are drinking too much coffee."
However, the rocker admitted the group have struggled with personal issues through the years but have managed to get through their difficulties.
He added in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Richie had issues, Tico Torres, our drummer, went through it. They all had problems unfortunately. When you have been together a long time then unfortunately things happen. You grow up, life goes on."Posted on 7 Jun 2010 10:00 to category : Music News
