Default Bon Jovi and Skid Row

Did Jon and/or Richie helped on the writting or production of the first Skid Row record? Neither of them have any credits on the album but Jon was promoting the band at that time....

There are rumours that they at least helped writing "18&Life" and "I Remember You" since these songs differ pretty drastically from the rest of the album. Some even go as far as saying that they stem from the New Jersey writing sessions.
However, nothing's been ever confirmed about that.

Jon and Richie had publishing rights which pretty much equates with being songwriters. There have always been rumors of them ghostwriting for Skid Row and Gorky Park. Jon has publicly said he’s written for Skid Row, but he’s never been credited on an album. This was when he was talking about writing for other artists in general. He said their name along with other artists. It wasn’t a conversation about Skid Row.

I'm out on tour with Skid Row atm; I'm trying to work out a polite way to ask if they have any Richie info. Might subtly try bringing this up too!

They were credited as writers for Peace In Our Time.

I know, but there were rumors that some of the other songs were written by them as well.

That was a goo CD. I need to find it.


ETA: It’s on Amazon Prime, so I’m listening to it now. It’s weird how I can remember every word of these songs that I have not listened to in probably 20 years, but I can’t tell you what I did last Wednesday. Aging is so much fun.

Jbj May have been in the same room when 18 & Life was written and thrown a few ideas in but he never “wrote it”.
He Certainly didn’t write anything on Slave to the grind and Subhuman race.

I can hear Jbjs influence in the song that was only released for the skid row greatest hits - Forever. That was wrote for debut skid row album but never used.

Snake Sabo has said in interviews that they would take songs to Jon and Richie to listen to and they would tell them the song wasn't good enough and they'd go back and work on it more.

TMZ asked Sebastian Bach about the Taylor Swift feud with Scooter Braun about owning her masters and in the video he says he heard a couple years ago that the masters of Skid Row's first album were lost. He said he doesn't know if it's true or not or if they're in Jon's basement or what, but that he doesn't really care.

I know the fight over their publishing has been discussed here over the years, but this is the first I've heard him say he's pretty much over it.
