February 14, 1987, Bon Jovi started a four week run at #1 with Livin’ On A Prayer!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
We had big plans today. We were going go to the Bronx Zoo since it was a nice day and Claudia needed to go and do research for her book and because we like critters large and small. But we woke up late and started recording and Claudia was busy doing taxes and when we looked up it was 5 p.m. So we decided on pasta and fish and some TV! A perfect Valentine’s Day.
I have been working on my guitar chops studying some youtube lessons so i figured I’d try today’s song on guitar. I met Jon Bon Jovi when the Stingers were working with Desmond Child, who is a co-writer on Livin’ On A Prayer. We were playing at Lola’s on 22nd street and Jon came in to see us. That was pretty cool!
Here it is for Today in Music. Livin’ On A Prayer!
