With a Rolling Stones tour recently announced, Mick Jagger clearly isn’t retiring anytime soon. However, Jon Bon Jovi wishes he would, but it’s not for a reason you might think.
JBJ was quoted by the Guilty Pleasures column in the U.K.’s Metro as saying, “[The Rolling Stones] are my absolute heroes, my favorite rock band. I am in awe but I wish the son of a b-tch would retire just so I know where the end is.”
When Bon Jovi, who turns 58 on March 2, was asked whether he’d still be selling out arenas and stadiums into his 70’s, he said, “I hope not. My goal is to do it as well as I’ve done it or better, just not to hurt the legacy. Nobody loved the fat Elvis. You’re not going to see that with me. I’d walk away before that happens.”
Bon Jovi headed to Abbey Road Studios today (February 28) where he re-recorded one of the band’s new songs “Unbroken” along with Prince Harry as a charity single for the upcoming Invictus Games. A gallery of images from that session can be viewed below.
Bon Jovi, the band, meanwhile, will be releasing their new studio album, Bon Jovi 2020, on May 15, and it’s currently available for pre-order at BonJoviShop.com.
