Let’s scream piracy. Let’s scream tougher laws.
The PR machine from the RIAA and Bon Jovi will be saying that this album didn’t sell as much as it should have, because people downloaded it for free. What a load of B.S?
The album is a DUD. It is a bunch of 50-year-old men, trying to appeal to a teen market. The teens that like Bon Jovi, like Bon Jovi because of the classic songs they have written, not because they try to sound like One Direction.
What About Now is sitting at 197 on the Billboard Chart. The album has done its run. Bon Jovi (the band) spent over 5 months recording and writing this album, only to have it do a run of 10 weeks.
Richie left for “personal reasons” according to Jon. Now Jon Bon Jovi doesn’t want to talk about it anymore. Then Jon drums up some publicity (as the album surely isn’t) by calling Justin Beiber an asshole. Richie then finally speaks out about his departure. He is pissed that Jon is talking trash and making it hard for him to return.
On the other hand, the Because We Can World Tour, is still continuing with shows booked all the way into 2014.
