Person to Person: Jon Bon Jovi

In case you missed it :)

CBS also has an "outtakes" reel :)

I (of course) can't stream video from work, so I'll have to catch them later. But I was able to (and so can you) go here to CBS's site, and read a transcript of the interview.

CHARLIE ROSE: Is it difficult, with the kind of public presence you have, to be the kind of father you want to be?

JON BON JOVI: Well, it is and it isn't. I mean, look, I -- I miss a lot of birthdays, I've missed a lot of school plays over the years. But then you also have the benefit of having a lot of time off when I'm not on tour, when I'm not makin' a record.

LARA LOGAN: How do you keep it real for them? How do you-- what do you tell them to try and get them to understand how fortunate they are?

JON BON JOVI: You first of all have to lead by example as a parent. Case in point, we're in this beautiful kitchen, we know how blessed we are. But where we spend most of our time these days when we're here at this house is at our community kitchen, The Soul Kitchen.

If you were to come there and you could pay for your meal you do. If you cannot you volunteer. There are no prices on our menus.

CHARLIE ROSE: And it's not just your money. You go there, you work?

JON BON JOVI: Oh sure. I'm the best looking dishwasher, you know, this side of the Mississippi. (LAUGHS)
