July 1, 1983 I was 10 1/2 Years Old. It was the Summer after 5th Grade/Before 6th Grade.

I didn't Discover (So-To-Speak) Bon Jovi until a Few Years Later in August of 1986 (2-Months before my 14th Birthday/One Month before my Freshman {9th Grade} Year of High School) when they came out w/there 'Slippery When Wet' Album. Which is STILL my Favorite Album of theirs. I've always been a HUGE Bon Jovi Fan. They are Fantastic LIVE in Concert. IMO they Beat Out all of the other 80's Hair Bands by far. They have withstood the Test of Time So-To-Speak; which has proven they are much more then just another 80's Hair Band. Simply put they ROCK!
 
On this day:
At 1st July of 1983, a New Jersey-based quintet calling themselves Bon Jovi signed to Phonogram's Mercury records, although they had also been considering the name Johnny Electric. The group have since sold over 130 million records worldwide, and performed more than 2,600 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 34 million fans.

After ushering in the era of pop-metal with their 1986 blockbuster 'Slippery When Wet' and its hit singles "You Give Love a Bad Name," "Wanted Dead or Alive," and "Living on a Prayer," Bon Jovi wound up transcending the big-haired '80s, withstanding changes in style and sound to become one of the biggest American rock bands of their time, selling over 130 million albums worldwide and sustaining their popularity well into the new millennium.

Bon Jovi took their name from lead singer Jon Bon Jovi (born Jon Bongiovi), who spent his adolescence playing in local Jersey bands with David Bryan (born David Rashbaum). Jon's cousin Tony Bongiovi owned the celebrated New York recording studio the Power Station and Jon spent many hours there, working as a janitor and recording demos after hours, sometimes supported by members of the E Street Band or Aldo Nova.

One of those demos, "Runaway," became a hit on local New Jersey radio and led to the formation of Bon Jovi the band, as Jon and Bryan were supported by guitarist Dave Sabo, bassist Alec John Such, and drummer Tico Torres. "Runaway" spurred a major-label bidding war, leading to a contract with Polygram/Mercury in 1983. Before the group entered the studio, though, Bon Jovi replaced Sabo with Richie Sambora, a working guitarist with a long résumé including a stint as a member of Message.

Bon Jovi released their eponymous debut album in 1984, generating a Top 40 hit with the original version of "Runaway." The following year, '7800° Fahrenheit' was released and went gold, all serving as a prelude to the band's 1986 breakthrough, 'Slippery When Wet.' Paul Stanley had given Jon and Richie the phone number of professional songwriter Desmond Child, and together they wrote two of the album's biggest hits in Richie's parents' basement.

The trio composed 30 songs in total and auditioned them for local New Jersey and New York teenagers, basing the album's running order on their opinions. Supported by several appealing, straightforward videos that received heavy rotation on MTV, the record took off on the strength of “'You Give Love a Bad Name',” followed quickly by "Livin' on a Prayer" and "Wanted Dead or Alive." Those three Top Ten Hits helped propel 'Slippery When Wet' to sales of nine million in the U.S. alone, establishing Bon Jovi as superstars in their home country.

Their fame was not limited to the U.S., though, as the album also turned into a significant hit in Europe, Canada, Japan, and Australia. Bon Jovi built upon 'Slippery When Wet's' formula with 1988's 'New Jersey', which shot to number one upon its release. 'New Jersey' was only slightly less successful than its predecessor, selling five million copies and generating two number one singles, "Bad Medicine" and "I'll Be There for You," as well as the Top Ten hits "Born to Be My Baby," "Lay Your Hands on Me," and "Living in Sin."

Following the completion of an 18-month international tour, the band went on hiatus. During the time off, Jon Bon Jovi wrote the soundtrack for 'Young Guns II', which was released in 1990 as the 'Blaze of Glory' album. The record produced two hit singles, the number one title track and the number 12 "Miracle" and earned several Grammy and Oscar nominations.

The following year, Bon Jovi reunited to record their fifth album, 'Keep the Faith', which was released in the fall of 1992. While the album didn't match the blockbuster status of its predecessors, it did produce a hit with "Bed of Roses," an adult contemporary-styled ballad that helped sustain the band's popularity. A greatest-hits album called 'Cross Road' appeared in 1994 and yielded another Top Ten ballad, "Always." During the tail end of the '90s, the members of Bon Jovi engaged in different projects.

The resulting album, 'Crush', appeared in 2000 and constituted something of a comeback in America thanks to the smash single "It's My Life," a cross-platform hit single with long legs. "Thank You for Loving Me" also turned into a hit, helping Crush go double platinum in the U.S. and selling eight million copies worldwide. Bon Jovi quickly followed 'Crush' with their eighth studio effort, 'Bounce', which appeared in fall 2002, and supported the record with another international tour. In 2003, the band re-recorded many of its most well-known songs for the acoustic-based release 'This Left Feels Right', which also saw an accompanying DVD in 2004.

The resulting 'Lost Highway', which featured duets with LeAnn Rimes and Big & Rich, arrived in the summer of 2007 and grabbed the band a healthy new country music fan base in the process. 'Lost Highway's' cross-genre formula proved to be quite potent, securing the band its third number one album in the U.S. Bon Jovi returned to rock shortly thereafter, though, with the release in 2009 of a somber, searching album titled 'The Circle.' One year later, 'Greatest Hits: The Ultimate Collection' offered plenty of hits along with two new tracks, "No Apologies" and "What Do You Got ?"

In the first years of the 2010s, the members of Bon Jovi pursued solo projects, the most notable being Sambora's 2012 solo album 'Aftermath of the Lowdown.' In November 2012, two months after Sambora's album, the band issued 'Inside Out', a live album for video, recorded at London's O2 Arena, New Jersey's MetLife Stadium, and New York's Madison Square Garden.

In March of 2013, Bon Jovi returned with 'What About Now', their first studio album in four years. A Bon Jovi consultant confirmed that a new studio album is planned to be released in 2016 followed by a world tour. On September 30, 2015, Jon Bon Jovi announced during a press conference that the title of their upcoming album will be This House Is Not for Sale.

Bragging rights
I can't Brag about my Love for GOD because I Fail HIM Daily, but I can Brag about HIS Love for me because it never Fails. Poem: When I Say, I Am A Christian............ When I say, “I am a Christian” I’m not shouting, “I’ve been saved!” I’m whispering, “I get lost sometimes That’s why I chose this way” When I say, “I am a Christian” I don’t speak with human pride I’m confessing that I stumble - needing God to be my guide When I say, “I am a Christian” I’m not trying to be strong I’m professing that I’m weak and pray for strength to carry on When I say, “I am a Christian” I’m not bragging of success I’m admitting that I’ve failed and cannot ever pay the debt When I say, “I am a Christian” I don’t think I know it all I submit to my confusion asking humbly to be taught When I say, “I am a Christian” I’m not claiming to be perfect My flaws are far too visible but God believes I’m worth it When I say, “I am a Christian” I still feel the sting of pain I have my share of heartache which is why I seek God’s name When I say, “I am a Christian” I do not wish to judge I have no authority I only know I’m loved Copyright 1988 Carol Wimmer https://www.facebook.com/whenisayiamachristian http://whenisayiamachristian.tumblr.com http://pinterest.com/whenisaypoem/when-i-say-i-am-a-christian
