The SS necklace or the Sex Sells logo

Ok, so heres a deepgoing thread into the mystics of Bon Jovi.

This journey will first take us back to 1998, when the there were plans for the Sex Sells album. I'm sorry, I cound't find the cover/logo for this album (the yellow roadsign with two SS), if anyone can post it, it would be big help :)

Yeah, some of you remeber this logo. A while ago (some years really), I saw that Jon had the same logo on a necklace on my KTF poster. This is the same photo as for the single, KFT.

Today I saw the same necklace on Alec in the New Jersey artwork!

I had to find out of there where more photos with this logo, and there were!
Here it is on with Jon (and Tico!)

And here's one with David wearing it, on the In These Arms single:


WHAT IS THIS??? Does anyone know anything about this?

Again, a real photo of the Sex Sells logo would be big help :)

Jon spoke about the necklace in the recent Q Magazine interview.

SS is also the abbreviation for Schutzstaffel, the nazi military organization which was established by Hitler and grew strong under the command of Himmler. First thing i thought when i saw the BJ logo was Waffen - SS, but now i have kinda got over it. Scary choice of logo if you ask me...

Aloha !

Yeah, but Jon wears his SS necklace as a tribute to me, Supersonic. One S stands for Supersonic, the other for Sebastiaan.

Here is a screen capture of the poster from the EdTV DVD.

Ugly Queen From Mars: Yeah, I get your idea, I thought the same to myself. Although, looking at the SS (Himmlers) I would say Kiss stole a lot more from it than Bon Jovi ;)

Seb: to quote Bob Dylan - "I don't believe you. You're a liar!" back in '66 :p
I guess the SS-game could go on forever.
Sex Sucks, Superman Sings, Sambora Stratocaster...

Kathleen: Thanks, I remeber that poster! I never saw EdTV, was it included in the move? (Was EdTV good?)
Any more info about the logo?

It's a styled up Slippery When Wet sign, like you'd see on a highway.
