Dry County Archives: Bon Jovi Facts

"Well, that's funny. Now I think about it, for a large part this album deals a lot with my past. I used to always want to be one of the Asbury Jukes (a legendary band form New Jersey lead by Soutside Johnny, red.), after-all my dearest possesion is a blue satin Jukes-jacket from 1977. That Rhythm and Blues influence you can clearly hear in the first two songs of These Days. In the titletrack I sort of play with people from the past. At one moment I sing 'Jimmy Shoes busted both his legs'. Jimmy Shoes is the nick-name of Jimmy Lovine, the big-boss of Interscope Records, but in my song he's just a little boy. A litlle boy that breaks both of his little legs. Ha ha!"
