It is, Jon did several speeches before the song in 93 & 95 and mentioned that. I was suprised it wasn't on Kathleen's list on the 1st page....

I'm putting it on right now - I copied that list from an old thread that we had that tried to list all the grey summer songs.

It was after the release of their third album in 1986, Slippery When Wet, which included the hit Livin' On A Prayer, that the band reached stratospheric heights and although their success continued, by 1991 the pressure took its toll.

"I had a crisis of some description," he (Jon) says. "It was to do with the music business. There's a reason why it's called a 'business'. I questioned it.

"We were driving along the Pacific Coast Highway one time and I was in the passenger seat thinking I was just going to throw myself out of the car.

"I went to see a shrink but was late for my appointment and so he told me my time was up and I thought to myself: 'Well, I'll just have to get over this in my own time.' I call that period my 'Grey Summer'. It lasted about two years.
