Kerrang: Mike Edwards from Jesus Jones did a house remix of "Keep The Faith". What's the story?
Jon: Mike was great. I never even spoke to him, actually. We sent him the tapes. He wanted to do it. He did it and I don't even think we're gonna release it. Great idea, great in theory. It just didn't overly excite me. He did a great job. I didn't know how I could go out and do it live.

The band went so far as have to have Mike Edwards of techno-pop act Jesus Jones work on dance mixes though, after a lot of agonizing, the band decided against releasing them, feeling that they were ultimately unrepresentative.

"There are no boundaries,"insisted Jon. "But I won't go off at a complete tangent just to satisfy someone else or to make this band out to be something it's not. Let's face it, I already have a great drummer, so what do I want with a drum machine ? You can't kid yourself: Bon Jovi are a rock band and with the acid-house mix I felt we were drifting into an area that was completely foreignt to us, and probably to most of our audience. The secret is to strike the right ballance."

I doubt if Jon still thinks the same...
