The hair is silver gray, the energy is dwindling – but getting older is not a problem for Jon Bon Jovi.
Jon Bon Jovi (58, "It's My Life") revealed in an interview when he would give up his rock star career. Compared to "klatsch-tratsch.de" he announced that he would no longer go on "big, endlessly long world tours". "I don't have the drive for that," explains the 58-year-old. But he doesn't have an expiration date for his band in mind – not yet.
For him, the Rolling Stones are a clear parameter for the "right" age to finally drop the microphone. "I've always considered the Rolling Stones to be my heroes. When they stop, I know when it's the right age to retire." He admires the energy with which the old rockers are still on stage in their mid-seventies. "I don't think I'll do that at that age, though."
Jon Bon Jovi also has a clear opinion on the subject of the aging process and cosmetic corrections. "I like to be a silver fox," says the singer about his gray hair. "If I were to come in here with botox sprayed on and dyed hair, I would feel like a sham." He is honest enough to show himself to the audience for who he is: "I accept that I have gotten older."
