Bon Jovi formed in 1983 with lead singer Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist Richie Sambora, keyboardist David Bryan, bassist Alec John Such, and drummer Tico Torres. Other than the departure of Alec John Such in 1994 (which pared the lineup down to a quartet), the lineup has remained the same for the past 27 years. Bon Jovi continues to sell out major venues across the United States with their unique brand of American Anthem Rock. With a career that has spanned several decades Bon Jovi has proven to be a band that stands the test of time. Originally Jon Bon Jovi became famous for his looks, in particular, his "butt". However, Bon Jovi has proven that he's more than just a pretty face.
