Bon Jovi – Debut
Hand signed by: Jon Bon Jovi, David Bryan, Richie Sambora, Alec John Such and Tico Torres
Bon Jovi is the debut studio album of American rock band Bon Jovi, released on January 21, 1984. Produced by Tony Bongiovi and Lance Quinn, it is significant for being the only Bon Jovi album on which a song (“She Don’t Know Me”) appears that was neither written nor co-written by members of the band. The album charted at No. 43 on the U.S. Billboard 200.
Aside from hit single “Runaway”, songs from the album were rarely performed live after the band released their breakthrough album Slippery When Wet in 1986. However, on the band’s 2010 Circle Tour, songs including “Roulette”, “Shot Through The Heart” and “Get Ready” were performed. The song “Shot Through the Heart” should not be confused with the much more well-known “You Give Love a Bad Name”, an unrelated song from Slippery When Wet.
