Bon Jovi is eligible for entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year. Coincidentally, Bon Jovi has the night off before their April 19th show in Los Angeles, the same day the nominations are announced.
According to drummer Tico Torres, the band isn't feeling any pressure to be inducted. "It's an ongoing thing," Torres said.
"There's a long list of great bands that need to go in there, and only a few can go in every year. It's something that even being nominated is an honor."
Jon Bon Jovi admits he still suffers from stage fright as his band gear up for their 2013 world tour.
He's been playing to audiences of tens of thousands for decades and he knows when it comes to showtime he can deliver the goods.
But it's in the weeks running up to hitting the road that nerves hit him. The singer tells the Express: "You have those same old neuroses – a voice in one ear saying, 'You can do it,' and a voice in the other ear saying, 'No you can't.'"
Geez Louise, man up Spanky!
I'll gladly rock it out any old time of the day!
