Finnally, someone thinks like me on the Def Leppard issue!!! What would Steve Clark say if he heard Songs From Sparkle Lounge? The name of that album makes me puke. High n Dry is more like it.

Greetings all..I'm an ax player and singer myself. Mostly old rock and roll, some classic Yes, acoustic rock songs, but primarily Judas priest and Iron Maiden. I dont ussually use tab unless its relyable, I mostly figure songs out by ear. If I had time to I could probably write more accurate tab then most of it out there.

Thank you :)

I play everything from hard rock.  prog rock,, to heavy metal of all kinds.  The only exception is nu-metal, and I don't play a lot of black metal. The majority of stuff is power metal, prog metal, and traditional heavy metal.  Some playlists are available at if you want to see what I've been playing lately.

I dont think bon jovi ever truly believed that they were a metal band or tried to be one. however,since they had long hair,leather fringe jackets and tight jeans, it was easy to lump them in with the metal crowd. magazines like hit parader needed bands like bon jovi to sell copies, so bon jovi became a pseudo metal band by default. bon jovi is simply pop radio rock with guitar solos. i have less respect for def leppard who were clearly metal influenced and now deny and disrespect metal altogether!

I play Priest all the time. Not necessarily every week, but pretty darned close.

My beef with Bon Jovi is that their first couple of albums were directly aimed at the metal audience (the lighter side of metal to be sure, but still metal), but as soon as they got some success, they not only denied their metal roots (such as they were) but went out of their way to belittle the metal audience whose support kept them afloat until they hit the big time.

So bottom line?  They don't want to be reminded of their metal roots, so I'm happy to oblige, and I won't acknowledge them as a metal band.  I pride myself that in 20 years of broadcasting heavy metal, I've never once played a Bon Jovi song, nor will I ever.

I quote Dee Snider on this one...

"There's no smiling in Heavy Metal"

Bon Jovi? Metal? In the same sentence? WTF?

Seriously Bon Jovi is a pop princess.

I agree with both of you, it is definitely NOT METAL and barely qualifies as rock, I personally think the guy is a flake.

My sister just loves the guy and i really cant understand it--but she also used to listen to Lisa Lisa when she was growing up. Go figure

Blah-blah-blah, blah-blah-blubb!!
Oh yeah!!

Heavy metal? They are barely rock. Girl rock more like it. Though I do like Blaze of Glory and Wanted Dead or Alive. The words Heavy metal and BonJovi should not be uttered in the same breath.

I take it your anwer is no ??

Bon Jovi is more of a hair band than true metal
