EDITORS’ NOTES

Not wanting to be perceived as a one-hit wonder, Bon Jovi quickly went back into the studio to record the follow-up to the mega-successful Slippery When Wet. The band wished to make a double album, but the record company insisted on a more accessible single release. Five top 10 hits—“Bad Medicine,” “Born to Be My Baby,” “I’ll Be There for You,” “Lay Your Hands on Me,” and “Living in Sin”—and more than seven million albums sold established the group as a serious and consistent commercial draw. Their sing-along choruses demanded audience participation and made them a top-selling arena rock band.
