Bon Jovi Turn Down $1 Million Book Deal

Rockers BON JOVI have turned down a $1 million (GBP500,000) book deal - because their private lives are "no one's business". Frontman Jon Bon Jovi claims publishers were particularly interested in the stories of bandmates David Bryan and Richie Sambora who have both been through painful divorces. Sambora, who recently lost his father to lung cancer, also checked out of rehab yesterday (13Jun07). But despite the huge sum of money offered to the Livin' on a Prayer stars, the rockers are not prepared to pen a tell-all book about their life experiences. Bon Jovi says, "One of those big publishers gave us a million dollars recently to write a book about our experiences but we just gave the money right back because it's no one's business. "They wanted the cliched story about being a rock star and I'm not going to tell them. It doesn't mean it didn't happen, it just means isn't there anything more important to talk about."

One of the things I admire about the band Bon Jovi is that for the past 25+ years, amid all the hullabalu of the "job",Jon and the boys have managed to keep their private lives private.Not an easy task,but one that is taken very seriously.They've shown that chasing a dream can indeed become reality. All you have to do is believe.They prove that everyday.That's all we need to know.
