Jon Bon Jovi Net Worth, Biography & Wiki 2017

John Francis Bongiovi was born on 2 March 1962, in Perth Amboy, New Jersey USA, of Italian (Sicilian) and Slovak (father), and Russian and German (mother) descent. Known to audiences by his stage name Jon Bon Jovi, he is a musician, actor, singer and songwriter, as well as a record producer. Bon Jovi began his singing career in 1982 with the release of his song called “Runaway”, and is best known as the founder and lead singer of the band Bon Jovi.

How rich is Jon Bon Jovi? According to sources, Jon’s net worth is estimated to be $300 million, mostly accumulated  due to the success of his band, and the release of their 12 studio albums that have sold over 130 million copies worldwide.

Jon Bon Jovi Net Worth $300 Million

Jon Bon Jovi went to school in New Jersey, but was far more interested in music than studying, and by his mid-teens was playing with any band who needed him, at least gaining experience. “Runaway” was initially turned down by many record labels, but the song was eventually picked up by rock station WAPP, and released on the station’s compilation album. The song became an instant hit and resulted in Mercury Records offering Bon Jovi a record contract. Later in 1983, Jon Bon Jovi formed the now popular “Bon Jovi” band with David Bryan, Alec John Such, Tico Torres, and Dave Sabo who was later replaced by Richie Sambora. The band released their debut album in 1984 and became an immediate success. Bon Jovi then released their breakthrough album entitled “Slippery When Wet” in 1986, which spent eight weeks at #1 on the Billboard album chart, and included some of their most prominent songs  to date: “Livin’ on a Prayer”, “Wanted Dead or Alive” and “You Give Love a Bad Name”. “Slippery When Wet” is undoubtedly the band’s most commercially successful, best-selling album that has been certified platinum 12 times by the RIAA, and is featured in the musical reference book “1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die”. The band’s fourth album called “New Jersey” was released in 1988 and became as successful as their third studio work.His involvement with the band has brought Jon significant additions to his net worth

Even though Jon Bon Jovi’s success and rise to fame came due to his involvement in the band, Bon Jovi has released two solo albums as well: “Blaze of Glory” and “Destination Anywhere”. Bon Jovi’s no less popular solo works have significantly contributed to his $300 million net worth.

In addition to his signing career, Jon Bon Jovi is known as an actor and has been credited for appearing in such movies as “Homegrown” with Billy Bob Thornton, “No Looking Back” with Lauren Holly, and “Cry Wolf” with Jared Padalecki.

Jon Bon Jovi is considered to be one of the wealthiest US celebrities and has been ranked #50 on the “Power 100” list of “The Most Powerful and Influential People in the Music Industry”. Throughout his career, Bon Jovi has been nominated for and won Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, and Golden Globe Awards among many others, and in 2009 was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

In his personal life, Jon Bon Jovi married Dorothea Hurley in 1989, and the couple has four children. Aside from music, in 2006 Jon Bon Jovi founded “The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation”, which aims to prevent homelessness in the USA. Jon also founded a “Philadelphia Soul” football team, and has an interest in purchasing another American football team, the “Atlanta Falcons”.

Quotes

#Quote
1I suppose I am like the Elvis Costello of the movie business and the Tom Cruise of the music business. I got so many good reviews for so many movies but had zero commercial success. And yet with regards to the band's music the critics have never been very accepting but the masses keep buying our albums
2Success is falling nine times and getting up ten.
3Do you really want to know why I'm doing all this goodwill, and why I'm an ambassador for Habitat for Humanity and why I gave a million to [relief efforts for Hurricane] Katrina? It's because I feel guilty about the huge hole in the ozone layer my haircuts created. It's my responsibility to right the wrongs of the Eighties.
4"I was crushed when Bush got re-elected. I was so depressed and am still gravely disappointed with the results of both elections. I think history will verify that the world would have been a much better place if the outcome had not been that way. I'm never going to be invited for tea at the White House. But I've never gone on stage - before the elections or since - and slagged off Bush. Not because I agree with him in any way, out of respect for the office of President. It's too obvious to bash Bush. Everybody knows what I think about his policies. We went to a local bar for a couple of drinks to cheer ourselves up. On the way home we passed a couple who were in their sixties. I could see the recognition in their eyes so I said, 'How ya doing?'. The old guy replied, 'I only got one thing to say to you' - and put his hand in the sign of a 'W'. I went bananas - and that wasn't one tenth of how badly my wife reacted. Needless to say, it's been a difficult last couple of years. It's heartbreaking many people now view Americans with suspicion. At one time, we were everybody's best friend. We could go to places perceived as dangerous territories. Now, I'd think twice about asking our road crew to travel there." (May 2006)
5"Introverted maybe, but incredibly focused to do whatever it is that I want to do. If it's to go running this morning or to drink tonight, it's gonna be the whole bottle. I don't sip." (about being shy)
6"If people have to tell you how successful they are, they really aren't that successful. That's something I learned sweeping floors at this recording studio called the Power Station. Mediocre stars were the biggest pricks, and the big stars were the ones who came in and said, "How're those demos going?" - Keep pushing." (success and life)
7"My real friends and my family know that if I'm not working I'm miserable. It's not for monetary reasons. I already have fame and fortune. Now I want to find the greatness in things - which is why I was attracted to the arts in the first place. Slowly, I have fallen in love with acting. And all the struggle here - the acting lessons, the indie movies - has taught me so much." (being in the limelight)
8I wrote the album during a time of extreme polarization in America. There was a war happening and it was dividing families. I realized the party that I was working for had lost but that we still had to come forward together as a nation. You can't be a sore loser. Hence the album title "Have a Nice Day". What drew me to politics in the first place was the fact that I wanted to have a place to take a stand and use my voice to express what I believed in. But I've no longer got any political aspirations. I feel that as a politician, fifty per cent of people would hate you before you even left the house. And I've never quite known what motivates politicians. Do they really believe in the cause that strongly or is it just the pursuit of power? I once flew on a plane with Bill Clinton and a reporter asked whose job was better, mine or the President's? I said that mine was, because I get to keep the plane and the house.
9Some people just court celebrity for the sake of it. People like Tom Cruise. He was always a great actor, but I think the man's lost it, lost it. You won't ever catch me jumping up and down on Oprah going on about how I love this woman. And then others start feeding off it. Suddenly, Katie Holmes is on the covers of magazines. These people claim they hate the intrusion that fame brings but then they bring it on themselves by having huge entourages everywhere they go, attracting attention to themselves. It's a great fallacy. Another one's Paris Hilton. Famous for being infamous. And the people who should be getting the attention, people like Bob Dylan, aren't. It's sad.
10I would love to be able to do both (acting and making music). If I look at someone like Sinatra, who toured until he was 80 and made 60 movies, that would be a great life to have.
11This is the way I look at sex scenes: I have basically been doing them for a living for years. Trying to seduce an audience is the basis of rock 'n roll, and if I may say so, I'm pretty good at it...Plus, being married and monogamous, it's the closest thing I can do to having sex without getting in trouble for it...The only thing I like more than my wife is my money, and I'm not about to lose that to her and her lawyers, that's for damn sure."--Movieline, February 1998
