Bon Jovi frontman Jon Bon Jovi is campaigning for his band to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - insisting the rockers deserve to be honoured next to ELVIS and THE Beatles.
The Livin' On a Prayer hitmakers have been rocking for 26 years, and were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame just last June (09).
But now Jovi insists it's time the band is recognised as rock royalty with music's highest honour.
He says, "I would really like to be. I intend to be, because, in all honestly, I would like to be a part of Elvis and the Beatles and The (Rolling) Stones' history. We've sold a lot of records and influenced another generation of fans, and the music has got staying power."
