New jazz gig kicks it out; Mastermindzz at benefit

The current trend of “unplugged” acoustic concerts and recordings can be traced back to 1989 when Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora performed the previously electric Bon Jovi hit, “Wanted Dead or Alive,” on acoustic guitars at the MTV Video Music Awards. It wasn’t long until MTV developed a regular show based around the idea.

Jon Bon Jovi: This one I take personally, so take this nomination with a grain of salt. Last week I covered the opening night at Billy Crystal's one-man show on Broadway. I interviewed many A-list names on the red carpet, but when Bon Jovi made his way toward me, he took one look at my FOX News microphone and said "Forget FOX," and walked away (that is the G-rated version of what he actually said).

I don't think he knows that I heard him.

I was hurt. First of all, I've been a huge fan of Bon Jovi ever since high school. But more to the point, it wasn't "Forget FOX" when I did a feature on him singing at New York City firehouses after 9/11. It wasn't "Forget FOX" when I covered the release of his new album "Bounce" when he fumbled snaps at Giants Stadium. It wasn't "Forget FOX" when I covered his NFL kick-off concert in Times Square, and it wasn't "Forget FOX" when I followed Richie Sambora behind the scenes at Continental Airlines Arena for yet another feature story on the band. And it wasn't "Forget FOX" when FOXNews.com did a piece on Bon Jovi drummer Tico Torres' baby clothes company.

But I'll tell you what, Jon. I will remember "Forget FOX" the next time your publicist calls to pitch me a story on your behalf. Grrr!

BON JOVI were honored with the AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS Lifetime Merit Award back in LA last month. What you do know is that Jon spoke on behalf of the band when accepting the awards (and you can go to the VIDEOS section of the 100,000,000 BON JOVI FANS CAN'T BE WRONG... page of this website to view the entire AMA segment featuring Bon Jovi's career retrospective reel, their performance and the speech.) What you probably don't know is that the thank you speech Jon gave was an abbreviated one... Jon actually had written a longer speech but since there is only so much time for thanks yous during a live awards telecast, he edited the speech down to what you saw/heard him deliver during the show. Jon however gave us the full-length speech to share with you here at www.bonjovi.com
