Dry County Archives: Bon Jovi Facts
Translated by Erik (firstname.lastname@example.org)
In 1985, when synthi-pop was really popular, Bon Jovi's second album was introduced. The title was '7800 Fahrenheit', but the response on it was mellow. The leading British metal magazine Kerrang!, that was positive about the debut record earlier, said 'a pale imitation of the Bon Jovi we have got to know and learnt to love'. Also Jon himself later said it could and should have been a better disc. We do find a little highlight on the cover; on it John Bongiovi Senior is thanked for....the hair styling! By the way: 7800 degrees fahrenheit is the melting point of 'rock'. Tracklist: 'In and out of love / Price of love / Only lonely / King of the mountain / Silent night / Tokyo road / Hardest part is the night / Always Run to you / To the fire / Secret dreams'.
Although the success for Bon Jovi came really quick, the mega-success took a little longer. Because in 1985, shortly after the release of '7800 Fahrenheit', Jon and Co. opened for, eh, Ratt.
