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.
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.
