Average.

He used to be a great singer in the early to mid 90s.  But these guys tour more than the average band - they've played well over 3,000 shows in 25 years.  They're still a fantastic live band, but JBJ's voice is nothing like it used to be.

He was there while the song was being fine tuned by David and Freddie.

While David and Freddie were producing, singing, mixing, creating and detailing one of the biggest singles of the decade, Bon Jovi was probably plunging the loo. Which means that each one was working at his own level.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

To be fair, he does sound better nowadays than in the mid 2000s!

Yep, I will give him that.  He has probably done some intense vocal training.

Listen to These Days - it's a very solid and introspective rock record.

Dry County and Just Older are great tracks as well.  They do have a lot of good music.  Not everything these guys have done is trite drivel.

I love it when people judge an artist's entire output based on a few songs they've heard on the radio..

Hmm.. by that rationale no one should have an opinion at all about any band unless they have heard the entire back catalogue?!

Plus demos, outtakes and home recordings of them when they were three.

Bon Jovi has always been trash.  Might've put out music that could be described as 'competent' in their earlier years but even then it hasn't exactly aged well.  They're definitely no Tom Petty ... and I don't even fuckin' LIKE Tom Petty.
