I’m a big fan of Bon Jovi and have been for a long time. I’ve seen them twice in concert. I have always been a HUGE fan of Jon and he has clearly aged pretty well (not to mention his great smile and teeth). New Jersey remains one of my favorite albums. And I’m not lying about any of this. So, it really was just a matter of time before Guitar Slide Wednesday featured this fabulous band. And while time hasn’t been *quite* so kind to Richie, he sure could/can play some rockin’ guitar.
So, we’re takin’ it back a ways for this one (this song came out in 1986). Aside from the guitar entrance following the vocal intro, the guitar solo is pretty exciting and features a few slides, plus a few more that pop up throughout the song.
Here are is the original music video (from back when MTV showed music). In addition to the guitar slides, enjoy the ridiculous, out-of-control hair and questionable clothing choices! Hooray for Bon Jovi!!!
