Default What do Tico and David think?

I’m genuinely intrigued.

We all know Bon Jovi has evolved into more of a business than a band but you’d like to think Tico and David have a genuine affection for Jon.

That being the case, do you think they’d ever tackle the issue of his vocals (or rather lack of them) and even go as far as to suggest retirement? You could make the argument that true friends would.

At this point are they carrying on out of loyalty, fear or the appeal of a pay cheque?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure Jon is well aware of his own failings but you wonder whether anyone within the inner sanctum dare raise them? If the famous brotherhood still exists, they would.

This current tour seems like a bit of a car crash and the longer this version of Bon Jovi continues, the more harm it does to their legacy. Surely that concerns Tico and David, if not their boss.

They’ve gone from one of, if not the best rock band in the world, to a pale imitation. No Richie, a singer who can’t sing and a host of randomers on stage. Including a producer who should be nowhere near live performances by the way.

The whole thing is just very sad.

I can't really see Tico and David doing it just for the paycheck or out of fear. Could be loyalty, but could also just be that they still get joy out of going out there on stage and playing for people, so they keep doing it simply because they like it.

Why in the world would they be sad? Because of Jon's voice? That's ridiculous.

These guys are in their early to late 60s and doing exactly what they should be doing at their age. Semi retired guys who get together periodically to relive their youth doing what they love to do.

They are still together as a band for 40 years, playing arenas all over the world, living a life that we all wish to live.

Sure thing could always be better but in the music industry, things could be much worse.

What do the fans think when they pay hundreds of dollars to see the shows?

I think most know what to expect and they go for the overall experience, not just Jon's voice.

I also think most casual fans realize that his voice has weakened but don't necessarily realize the extent of it because a lot gets drowned out.

Causal fans leave more disappointed with the amount of non hits played than Jon's voice. When you want Bed Of Roses and Always and get Lost Highway and Just Older, it's a bigger disappointed.

Then I guess it will naturally drop once casual fans stop falling for it. It really doesn't take a lot of effort to look up a YouTube clip to hear what they currently sound like.

I've heard directly from people that casual fans were interested in this show but decided not to go after watching some clips. The MN newspaper reviewed a show citing on his vocal issues like it is new thing...so there are a few who still don't know.
