Default Bon Jovi influenced bands/artists, what else is out there?

I've been playing the living crap out of Johnny Lima lately - I absolutely love all his albums up until (and including) Livin' Out Loud. Now I feel like I'm missing out on some others as well; which other - preferrably good - artists or bands there are sounding like Bon Jovi?

They don't necessarily sound exactly like Bon Jovi, but My Chemical Romance and Sunrise Avenue are both influenced by Bon Jovi (the singer of Sunrise Avenue even has the Superman tattoo) and you can definitely hear the influence in some of their songs. In MCR's case mostly on the Black Parade album I'd say.

1) Dragonforce: Herman Li cites Sambora's solos as the first he would hear every now and then as a child, which inspired him initially. Sam Totman said something to the effect of "We just play Bon Jovi solos, just at a faster tempo"
2) Nickelback: Ouch! But seriously, their first 3 records are top notch pop rock. Chad Kroeger loves him some BJ.
3) 3 Doors Down/Aaron Lewis of Staind/Brent Smith of Shinedown/Corey Taylor of Slipknot/Daughtry/Alexi Laiho of CoB have all covered Wanted Dead or Alive, which is perhaps the most respected song in the Jovi catalog.

Potentially, it does border on parody at times lol

I always felt The Calling had Bon Jovi influences. Some of the band members looked identical too.
