Bon Jovi Finally Speaks on Everyone’s Hurt Little Feelings


Bon Jovi is a good band. Let’s get that out of the way first. Nirvana they are not, but I can think of much more embarrassing acts for a digital Kurt Cobain avatar to sing along to. For example, the Foo Fighters.

To remind you, Courtney Love and the non-genius 2/3rds of Nirvana are upset that the Kurt Cobain character in the latest Guitar Hero can be used to play music by other acts. In a press release, her lawyer said Kurt’s legacy would be debased if he were to sing the songs of Bon Jovi. Hey, everyone – in for a penny, in for a pound. If you’re going to digitize the guy, it’s no great leap to make him an unlockable player. Also, our society accepts video games about the Vietnam War. I’m not losing sleep over the guy who wrote “Rape Me” singing “Livin’ On a Prayer” – both good songs!

Jon Bon says:

I had the paperwork; they wanted me to be on that game, and I just passed. But no one even broached the subject with me that I would be singing other people’s stuff. I don’t know how I would have reacted to that. I don’t know that I would have wanted it either.

Yeah, well, you ain’t dead. Your wife would be fine with it, I promise you.

    I’m sure you don’t give a flying *&^k about actually getting a real journalism job one day, or about the future of people with chronic or fatal diseases or disorders, but regardless, your writing is neither informative nor clever. Working at People magazine, I deal with celeb gossip all day, but this is NOT celeb news nor gossip. If you’re going to try to be the ‘bitchy’ blogger how about you actually write something clever?.. There is nothing entertaining about your ‘stories’ and I’ll be forwarding this, along with any others I find horrendous to our entire staff and will also cc any corporate sponsor I find on this site. Your writing represents you as a very dangerous person. I can’t help but think you are at home… in your trench coat.. buying weapons online, and waiting for the day YOUR name ends up in the news. You are really very scary, and your comments are very hateful, aside from that, there is absolutely nothing clever nor witty about your blogs. I’m a little shocked you still have a job. If your employers are smart, you won’t for long. I for one won’t be revisiting this site to check.
