In 2010, President Barack Obama named Jon Bon Jovi to the White House Council for Community Solutions. His father was of Italian and Slovak ancestry and his mother was of German and Russian descent. When he was seventeen, John was working sweeping floors at his cousin Tony Bongiovi’s recording studio. Along the way, Mercury gave Bon Jovi a recording contract in 1983, and to promote Runaway, Bon Jovi called up Richie Sambora, David Bryan, Tico Torres and Alec John Such and formed a band. During their 1986-1987 tour, Jon’s attempt to give it his all during live shows (plus the tour’s exhausting schedule) greatly strained his vocal cords, and he began receiving steroid shots to help him sing. The album was recorded very shortly after the tour for Slippery, because the band wanted to prove that they were not just a one hit wonder. Sambora is noted on the albums as co-writer for many songs, yet he resented the lack of attention that was heaped on Jon alone.
