Bon Jovi Doesn’t Want To Be a ‘Journeyman’
Jon Bon Jovi says he has no plans to still be performing when he is 75, and is amazed by the likes of Paul McCartney and The Who, both of whom will be on the bill with Jon at next week’s Hurricane Sandy benefit at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
He says, “I’m (bleeping) dying already and I’m gonna go out there and play four songs. How do they do it? The Who and (Mick) Jagger and McCartney. … I’m not going to be that journeyman. … I’m not going to be that 75-year old guy doing 150 shows a year.”
Other journeymen on the Sandy bill are Eric Clapton, Roger Waters and Bruce Springsteen.
