Jon Bon Jovi gave an interview to “Big Issue” magazine, where he discussed all his successes as a musician – but also some failures.
In this last field, the leader of Bon Jovi highlights the first talent contest in which he participated, and which his parents attended.
“It was so bad that they wanted to hide in shame, under the benches,” he said.
“But they saw my passion and my commitment, and when I was 17 they let me play in bars until closing time. I could come home at one or two in the morning and go to school at eight.”
Parental support was very important for Jon Bon Jovi, who at 21 already had a contract with a record label. “I never had a plan B,” he said.
“From my parents, I gained the ability to make dreams come true. Even if you’re not good at your art, if you believe you are, you can work on it. As I got older I realized that this was a great lesson that my parents taught me “.
However, the musician also talked about his mistakes. “The worst mistake I ever made was not allowing myself time to stop and enjoy,” he said.
“I was always so focused on the next step, and the next, and the next, that it cost me a lot of good memories. And a lot of blank nights, which I didn’t deserve. It’s my biggest regret.”
