What do you think... good or bad. Is this song criminally forgotten or should it never see the light of day again? Never played live...


Never like it. It's one of those annoying songs that get stuck in your head.

You don't know that Jon wouldnt replace him. They did with Alec, they used a cut out for the video which means they still moved forward and no one knew if he would ever be able to play again. So that would have ended Bon Jovi?

You need to think more rational and understand the timeline better.

Let me point this out. If Daves finger was an issue, then how did all those songs get recorded for Sex Sells? You know, all those songs on the box set and b sides?

Sex Sells was the working title for Jons second solo album. There was a listening party and everything. They were going to use that same title for Crush but instead decided to use Crush. Dave's finger had nothing to do with scrapping Sex Sells and deciding to do Crush. Nor did it have to do with any type of delay as the initial statement was made.

I wish there were more people here who knew what the **** they are talking about instead of making these stupid ****ing statements and then all agreeing with each other.

As for replacing; The Jon Bon Jovi of 1999/2000 would never replace David Bryan for anyone else, it's exactly what's wrong with the Jon Bon Jovi of today.

Salaam Aleikum,
Sebastiaan

And had been said... Amen.

Nothing was delayed. Sex Sells was completed and trashed. They started over with Crush which came out a year later. Ebin probably filled in for Dave until he was ready. End of story.

If you want the facts, listen to me. If not, follow the other dopes.

I'm done with this topic.

It's a good song. Nothing amazing but certainly not underwhelming or anything.

It's amazing how you can assume something and call it a fact. The FACT is that you are just assuming what went down and making an educated guess, just like the rest of the people here. Bruce's passing DID in FACT delay the release of what would eventually be called Crush. Dave's finger injury also had a hand in that as well, if you want to assume it didn't then by all means do so, but I'll take the band's interviews and statements during that time to make MY educated guess over your assumptions.....

OK,OK, , all those "facts" Iīve taken for accurate were told by somebody Iīd taken for true. Nothing else, I didnīt look into Davidīs medical report nor accompanied him to his physical sessions. I could never know when Sex Sells was finished but in "Real Life" video there are clues for it to be a band album. I just know I know nothing.

Just one thing: wasnīt the supposed-to-be third Jonīs solo album going to be called "Retrospective" or "Introspective"? Just came to my mind

Introspective was the working title of Destination Anywhere. After that one Jon intended to make his "third" solo album more upbeat and after he wrote the song Sex Sells decided that to be the working title of it. Then that morphed into a band record, then the song wasn't going to make it so they were going to call it One Wild Night, but decided that would be a better title for a live album. Eventually they decided on Crush....
