WELCOME TO RIVER DAVES PLACE

Turns out Jon Bon Jovi is a pretty nice guy.

He has been filming a video all day at the Biltmore where I have been staying. I passed him 3 times today and every time he nodded or said hello. The meeting I’ve been in today is right next the room the are using for a green room for the video shoot.

I know the inmates would much rather see pics of the 1/2 dozen smoke show models that are here but I feel a little creepy taking pics of them.

After he seemed so welcoming I decided to ask for a pic - he was very generous and polite. In truth I’m not really a fan of his music but have to respect his success and more importantly how genuinely nice he was as I watched him interact with people today.

He was married to Heather Locklear, and you didn’t ask to sniff his fingers?

Lol to bad he wasn’t married to her, his band mate Richie Sambora was.
Its to bad Bon Jovi is a giant lib, used to like him when I was a kid chasing girls with big hair.😂

The L.A. Biltmore? If so that place is super cool with a lot of history. I crawled over that place...found some really interesting stuff.

Always cool to hear when somebody that has been famous for so long is still somewhat down to earth. Dude is a flat out legend. Would be awesome to have a couple beers and hear his stories. I’d say trade stories but my craziest shit wouldn’t make his top 100

He was on the same plane as me and my family going to Vancouver from LA. It was the height of their popularity, 1986. A few other teens on the plane. He signed autographs for everyone. He was nice then too.

I was in Ft Lauderdale yesterday - I’m staying at the Biltmore in Miami. The Millennial Biltmore downtown LA looks very similar inside to this one - this was built in 1926 and the wood work and ceilings are epic - he has been using parts of the hotel with the most ornate looks - the ball room and court yard they did a few scenes in are historically beautiful if you appreciate old historical architecture.

I’m looking forward to seeing the video when it comes out.

I disagree with his politics, but it's good to see a first hand account of him being somewhat down to earth.

My Aunt and Cousin traveled with Bon Jovi on their tour in Russia back in the 90's. They said they were all really nice folks.

On a side note, a buddy of mine back then was in the Living In Sin video. He the main Characters boyfriend.

This week, I somehow got on a playlist of his newer music...it was actually pretty good mellow music.

He is married to his high school sweetheart and has been for almost forty years. He supports 35 different charities. He truly is a good guy.

Nice to see someone that doesn't just spout off their mouth about the less fortunate or use them for props in political speech. He lives it.

I like Bom Jovi music now.

But back in the day I thought it was bubble-gum rock.

A recently separated friend of mine and wifey loves Jon Bon.
I texted her Bobs pics this morning.
She loved it. 😊

I grew up on his music and still like it to this day.....

As far as politics, he may be way left but in reality he is not terribly obnoxious about it. We are all entitled to our own view.
