Yeah, I know what you mean. If we're talking about the same thing, it's something that back in 2013, and I mentioned it back then - only that then it sounded like he had too much spit in his mouth or something, and then it got worse in 2015/2016. I have no idea what's causing this, but I don't think it's due to doctoring/filtering in the studio. Then again, strangely enough, his talking voice sounds ok for the most part...

I was watching something about Bon Jovi the other day on YouTube. When it was over, the next video in line auto started which was some fan club thing that his brother Matt was promoting... I wasn't watching at this point and was only half listening... Jon's brother Matt talks exactly like Jon to the point of me thinking it was Jon... I was like "what the hell is Jon talking about" went over to the computer and saw it was Matt... Even the laugh is almost identical.

My point to all this is, you can kinda use Matt's speaking voice as a gauge to judge Jon's speaking voice...

I know it sounds weird and maybe a bit of a stretch but Matt's speaking voices is a little rougher than Jon's and he didn't abuse his voice for 35 years. Jon's speaking voice is probably what it should naturally sound like for a guy pushing 60.

The fact that there are some songs on THINFS that have it (Born again Tomorrow, Roller Coaster, Living With the Ghost) and some that don't (Labor of Love, Come on Up...,) is what confuses me most. It's not as present on HAND but there, full on WAN.

Yep. Jon pretty much made a pact with the devil in order to have success, meaning that he always pushed up to (and past) 100% of what he was capable of in the studio. Even back in 1992 and 1994, when he had to "live to track" promo performances in the original key of the song, he was noteably out of his comfort zone. There's a reason why their live shows got downtuned already when he was in his 20's. He's literally abused it to the point of no return.
And to add to the point of Matt sounding like Jon: Go to the 7 minute mark in this video where they talk about his problems on the SWW and NJ tours.
His father's voice sounds almost exactly like Tico! So from a genetic point of view - that's where it'll take him. In a few years it'll literally be impossible for him to even get near the requiured notes of 80% of the Jovi catalogue.

First time I've not rushed to listen a "Bon Jovi" song - I've heard it once and was bored as hell, for a good cause tho - I like the This House record tho so will give the new record a go - Just my 2 cents

Adding to your point, I could not find a single Livin on a prayer close or better than the studio version. That "the tube" performance is kinda close but no key change chorus so it really doesn't count.

There was an interview on Twitter where Jon talks a little about the song. He basically said he was asked to write the song for the documentary:

BTW, I can't get that song out of my head...
