Review: Sex, Drugs and Bon Jovi by Richard Bozzett



Since its very beginning, there has been an impenetrable “CIRCLE” of secrecy surrounding Bon Jovi that no outsider has ever been able to penetrate. But now there’s the inside story of Bon Jovi—from their very first gig as an unknown opening act, through their ascent to unimaginable superstardom, told by the only person who was inside the circle with them every minute of the time—Bon Jovi tour manager Richard Bozzett.

The book reveals the astonishing connection between Bon Jovi and the two largest pot and cocaine trafficking operations of their time, how an ill-conceived publicity stunt turned into a career-threatening sex scandal, but ended up with the photographer dead and the pictures missing, PLUS, the shocking reasons for the band’s unofficial break-up at the height of their career and reformation 2 years later—along with hundreds of never-before-seen pictures that chronicle the entire story every step of the way!



Whether you’re a die-hard Bon Jovi fan, grew up listening to their music or have ever attended one of their concerts, this is the ONE book that will actually take you inside the circle and bring you closer to the band than ever before!

I'm a Bon Jovi fan and I'm always interested to find out personal information about celebrities.  There is no way I would pass up a chance to read a book with this title.  It's not surprising that I had a blast reading this book.  If you're a fan, this is a must read.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book for free from ROSICA. All opinions expressed are 100% mine. If you purchase a book using my Amazon or Barnes and Noble link, I will receive a small portion of the purchase price.

I always thought Jon Bon Jovi was one of the truly nice guys in music. I could be wrong, I guess.

This sounds interesting. I think I am the only person that lives in NJ and has never seen Bon Jovi. And he grew up in the next town!

I am such a Bon Jovi fan and even though they admit in the Back When We Were Beautiful book about the party days when they were younger, I think they are past that point in their lives and careers. We've all made mistakes and since I don't want people dwelling on mine I think I will refrain from this book myself. Thanks for the review though!

I am the biggest Bon Jovi fan. (My daughter and I have a joke that Jon is her real daddy) I am a little nervous about reading it but if you enjoyed it and you are a fan, then I am anxious to get my hand on Jon, um I mean the book!

Hubby's reading a rock story right now, what a hoot if I joined in reading this one/ Thank you for the review. It sounds like Bon Jovi wa not the squeaky clean band management squeaked out in the press (pr)...but then again, the bands never are.
