“When I heard ‘Runaway’ on the radio, I thought I made it. When I got a record deal, I thought I made it. When we had ‘Slippery When Wet,’ I thought we’d made it. When we played our first time at an arena, and you headlined, you thought you made it. Each step along the way is just a life’s lesson in humility. And it gives you the ammunition to go on and be excited about the next thing.”
-John Francis Bongiovi, Jr. (Jon Bon Jovi)
