In Sayreville, New Jersey, Jon Bongiovi hung around area clubs in his early teens, confident that one day he would be on
the stage himself as a rock star. The local music scene was booming there with the music of rising stars like Southside Johnny
and the Asbury Jukes and Bruce Springsteen leading the charge. By the age of 16, Jon was playing gigs at nightclubs. He was
playing with various bands, including The Lechers, Jon Bongiovi and the Wild Ones, and The Rest. Keyboardist David Brian also
played with him in a 10-piece rhythm and blues band coined Atlantic City Expressway. The members of Bon Jovi crossed paths
in those days but the current band didn't fall into place until 1983, after Runaway, the debut Bon Jovi single had gained
In one of those serendipity moments, Jon Bon Jovi took a job sweeping floors at a recording studio - a job his cousin,Tony,
the co-owner of the Big Apple power station, had set him up with. Jon had penned Runaway in 1980 and recorded the demo, accompanied
by back-up musicians his cousin had hired. A local radio station picked up Runaway and the song received some heavy airplay.
Runaway gave Jon some attention, and he realized that if he wanted to capitalize on the song's success by touring New York
venues he would need more musicians. He contacted David Brian who recruited others, including Richie Sambora. The band was
in place, and they begin jamming around New York. They opened for the band Scandal, which was a monumental moment for the
band. Record executive Derek Shulman took notice, and signed them onto PolyGram. Names of the band were tossed around until
they finally settled on anglicizing Jon's last name, and Bon Jovi was born.
