Jon Bon Jovi found fame after his song ‘Runaway’ (1984) was rejected multiple times by different record labels, including Mercury (Polygram) and Atlantic Records in 1983. Despite being skeptical, the rocker still paid the popular New York City rock station WAPP, otherwise known as ‘The Apple’ at 103.5FM a visit. He gained massive attention when his track was included in their compilation of local talents. The ‘Blaze of Glory’ (1990) crooner was signed up by Mercury Records and then formed his band, Bon Jovi, shortly after.

In the 1990s, he turned his fame into something more. Bon Jovi ventured into acting and appeared in the films ‘Young Guns II’ (1990), ‘U-571’ (2000), and ‘Cry Wolf’ (2005).

His stage name, Jon Bon Jovi, is the stylized spelling of his birth first and last names, John Francis Bongiovi Jr. He also goes by the nicknames Captain Kidd and Johnny.

He revealed that he is blood-related to the late music icon Frank Sinatra on the May 1988 issue of Spin Magazine. He referred to him as his paternal uncle.
