For the love of BJV

I can't believe that I've had this blog for almost 18 months now and I've not mentioned Bon Jovi once.

I came home and hub hub was DVRing American Idol because they were featuring songs from BonJovi. They showed clips of Jon and David practising the songs. You might ask yourself, is this really blogworthy?

Whatever you think you know about me, you really don't, unless you know how much I love Bon Jovi.


I said it.

Out loud.

I grew up on BJV.

Loving Bon Jovi built character. You don't think so? What's the first thing that came to your mind when you read Bon Jovi? Did you snicker? It's one thing if you're actually from Jersey, but I'm not. It'd be different if I was like True Jersey Girl, but I'm a singaporegrrl.

When I was 19 I worked for a concert promoter in SG who was organizing a music festival on Sentosa. The promotions company was Christopher Cole Promotions. The headliners were Bon Jovi. They were touring to support Keep the Faith and this was the first time that they performed in Singapore.

Working for the promotions company entitled me to a AAA pass, so, not only did I get to see my boys perform, I got to meet them and conversate with them. You might be expecting to hear some scandalous story of partying like a rock star with rock stars. There was partying but don't forget, this was Singapore circa 1993.

The only person that I didn't get to meet was Jon. He was quite elusive. Anyone out there who wants to facilitate a meet and greet for me with JBJ, please go right ahead.
