JonBon in Bollywood?

International music icon Jon Bon Jovi goes back in time as he discusses his career and, of course, the work that’s gone into his latest album.

You’re hitting 50 soon. Have you achieved all that you wanted to?
Every step along your way is the run to the ladder above you and there’s always another piece of the puzzle that’s been put together. But I think, at this point, how I try to measure success is the length of the career. We are the biggest touring band in the world. I can’t even believe it but everyday is another run with the ladder that’s higher.

Tell us about the new songs in the Greatest Hits album.
In the case of The Greatest Hits, the song The More Things Change talks about what the greatest hits are. It says that fads and fashions come and go but the truth is it’s always about a good song. No Apologies is very much a Bon Jovi kind of anthem and hence, fit in the Greatest Hits album.

Your new singles still has the same spirit that had people hooked on to your music in the 90s. But the four new singles still sound contemporary...
The four new songs are anthemic rock songs and were written specifically for The Greatest Hits album, which represent who we are, where we are and our body of work thus far. They are uplifting, optimistic Bon Jovi anthems that fit into this album well.

What keeps you going year after year, when it comes to creating new music? Who are your inspirations?
We just love it too much to stop. My inspirations are Bruce Springsteen, Boston, Thin Lizzy, Van Halen, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Kiss, Def Leppard, Deep Purple and Elvis Presley.

You’re yet to visit India. why’s that?
I would like to visit India, but we keep our touring schedule such that it does not really get too exhaustive or excessive. We’d like to tour in a manner that is not excessive and so, we haven’t.

Have you ever considered collaborating for a Bollywood project?
I’d love to collaborate. I’m always excited about the prospect of collaborative efforts because music is a universal language and doesn’t have to do anything with borders or even language barriers.
