Bon Jovi: Shelter From The Storm Review

 

Oh, a storm is threat'ning, My very life today
;
If I don't get some shelter, Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away

-Gimme Shelter

In 1969, amidst the chaos and confusion of race riots, the Vietnam war and what appeared to be not just a country but a world falling apart at the seams, the Rolling Stones wrote and recorded a searing, severe and apocalyptic song that defined the times entitled "Gimme Shelter". The four-minutes and twenty-eight seconds of this masterpiece embody the entire 1960's than almost any other piece of art from the entire decade. Even though I wasn't alive in the 1960's, I can hear the pandemonium in this track; the incendiary brimstone and fire remains just as revelatory today in its ability to transform and adapt itself to the times. As revelatory as the track was in 1968, it's continued to evolve and forty-years later, the song is larger than life as fans continue to find refuge and shelter in the art of it.

Twenty-three years after the Stones recorded "Gimme Shelter", the title track of Bon Jovi's fifth studio record, Keep the Faith proved to be a reaction of sorts to "Gimme Shelter". Despite desolate times and a draining economy the band found a spark in the dark and turned everything they knew on its head from a musical perspective. Despite the ambitious worldly nature of the track, it didn't light up the charts and was the first single since 1985 that Bon Jovi had released to not make the top ten. However, something mystical and miraculous has happened to this song over the last fifteen years, it's reinvented itself, redefined a band and has proven to be an anthem for the ages. Two-hours into Bon Jovi's sold-out Sunday night concert at the United Center in Chicago, I'm watching Richie Sambora, less than ten feet away from me, wield his guitar with mastery I've never seen from the six string shredder before in my life. Sambora's fingers graced the frets and delicate exactness, but the look on his face said it all; his narrow eyes were so entrenched in thought that he was able to sway the crowd to another level of euphoria through the pure dominance of his performance. It was a turning point in not just the evening but in the young tour as well. The most powerful aspect of live music as an art form is its ability to evolve and transform; something a film and a painting can't do. The crashing and exuberant performance of "Keep the Faith" painted a picture that wasn't just pulverizing but was concurrently cinematic in its scope as well; just like the use of "Gimme Shelter" in a Martin Scorsese film.

The official US leg of the Lost Highway tour began last week in Omaha, NE and began a three-night residency in Chicago this past Saturday. The shows leading up to the Sunday one were good, yet a tad too dialed and domestic for my taste. They were perfectly executed shows, but lacking the extra drive to take it over the top. However, it was an entirely different story on Sunday. Every once in a while all of the elements that make a perfect show fall into place and Sunday night in Chicago, Bon Jovi delivered one for the ages.

Right from the rip-roaring opening trio of "Lost Highway", "You Give Love a Bad Name" and "Raise Your Hands" the band, especially Jon, willed the crowd to life to a euphoric state that never waned. The vigor of the band was on full display on "Runaway" and even though this song is over a quarter-century old this was the best performance I've seen of the song to date. The band plunged into the song in a way they haven't done in decades. Most notable were Tico Torres' uninhibited yet meticulous fastidious backbeat and Sambora's sprawling solo. The band appeared reborn and performed "Runaway" as if it was their most recent single and not a banal hit.

The evening showcased eight songs not performed the night before and while I don't feel some of the choices are among their best ("Bounce", "Till We Ain't Strangers"), the drive and determination during each of the performances proved to be refreshing and revitalizing. "Misunderstood" was resurrected for only the second time since 2003 demonstrating how varied and wide their catalog truly is and Jon even invited a fan to hold the lyrics for him since it was a last minute addition to the set list. The comforting "In These Arms" was inviting, impenetrable and winking. "Captain Crash & the Beauty Queen from Mars" was a psychedelic acid trip down memory lane with the fan club section waving their arms in sync like a pro football cheer leading squad while the revelatory and soulful "I'll Be There For You" literally brought the house down. Saturday night found Sambora taking lead vocal duties on the affecting ballad with a stirring guitar solo but on Sunday night, Sambora joined Jon on a side platform in the crowd where they performed the song acoustically as a duet. Sports arenas usually provide indolent experiences because of the vastness of the room, but these two singular artists found a way to bring breathtaking intimacy to the sold-out crowd through their performance. "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night" triumphed because the delivery was forthright, sincere and found Jon Bon Jovi cuing the crowd into ecstasy into a celebratory finale.

"Stranger In This Town" found Richie Sambora front and center in a dreamy, bluesy and a tour de force moment. When he sung the lyric, "Hey mister can you tell me, what this world's about, it might just help me out" it rung truer to me than at any other time in my life. Great artists often ask questions they don't have answers to. It's in these questions that we derive hope from…and more importantly, faith. I would rather have an enigmatic track that leaves me with more questions than answers and "Stranger In This Town" is a contemplative elegy for all-time. Here is an artist who has climbed some bleak walls in the last few years, clashed with demons and let me tell you, the end result is the most fluid, free form and feverish playing of Sambora's career. In short, Richie Sambora is at the apex of his career. A month ago, I caught Buddy Guy in his Chicago nightclub and after witnessing that miracle, I wondered why I bother with large shows. Richie Sambora reminded me why I love arena rock with the heartrending delivery of his solo tune. His playing is emotive like the best blues legends, only on a larger and grander scale.

Even the nightly warhorses were riveting; "Whole Lotta Leavin" rung true with an earnestness that is genuine and after the band surged in fully after the first verse, it was like a knockout blow from a heavyweight. During "Born To Be My Baby" (on Saturday night), Jon Bon Jovi strove over to the side platforms and actually kissed a woman and her husband/boyfriend giddily stood by taking a picture. In what world would this be OK with him? Only at a Bon Jovi concert. Jon was more mobile than I've seen him on stage in over a decade and appeared to be footloose and fancy free. Right from the first note to the last one, the band was storming to their own groove.

"(You Want To) Make A Memory" continues to attest their relevancy with a hush-like performance where the audience can be heard murmuring the lyrics but when multiplied by 20,000; it's not just good, it's divine. The pure adolescent jubilation of "Who Says You Can't Go Home" secured the emotions of the 20,000 in attendance which was followed by the tangled rawness of "Have A Nice Day". The simple flipping of these two songs worked wonders for the set list as the pacing improved leading up to aforementioned "Keep The Faith" and the supercharged "Livin' On A Prayer".

The collective talents of the seven musicians on this stage bestowed the Chicago crowd with an explosive exuberance none of them will forget any time soon. The inner mechanics of their musicianship is still in tact and is as enlivening as it's ever been. The cinematic inferno they injected into the crowd during the explosive "Keep the Faith" proved to be a countercultural movement inside the walls of the arena. The bad has had bigger and more ambitious hits but none have resonated and continued to develop the way "Keep the Faith" has progressed. Like "Gimme Shelter" from four decades back, "Keep the Faith" has proven to be a socially vicarious turbocharged plea for trying times. It speaks of the coming storm, wrestling with life's obstacles and yet finding solace and hope. For 150-minutes on Sunday night in the Windy City, Bon Jovi gave me and 20,000 others shelter from the storm and a renewed sense of faith substantiating that their art is more than a nostalgia trip but an expansive and weighty body of work.

 

And it's hard to hold on when there's no one to lean on.

Faith: You know you're gonna live through the rain.

-Keep The Faith

New country for old rockers
By Mark Guarino | Daily Herald Music Critic


When the national spotlight turned to DeKalb last week following the shooting rampage at Northern Illinois University, New Jersey rock band Bon Jovi found themselves in the middle of the melee as that same night the band was scheduled to rehearse in the university's convocation center in preparation for a tour that will take them to Chicago for three nights, starting Saturday.

Bon Jovi in the center spotlight isn't news, considering that the band has had the good fortune and savvy insight to periodically reinvent their look and sound to prevent from rotting in the hair metal dustbin alongside former peers Whitesnake, Skid Row and Cinderella.

Bon Jovi continues the reinvention with "Lost Highway" (Island), a crossover album into modern arena country, featuring flecks of fiddle and steel guitar and guest cameos from LeAnn Rimes and Big & Rich.

Last week, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora, keyboardist David Bryan and drummer Tico Torres jumped on the phone to talk about their new sound and lend a perspective about being in the same rock band after 25 years. What follows is an edited transcript.

Q. Last summer, you were in Chicago to shoot the video for "Lost Highway" at the roots music club Fitzgerald's right outside the city in Berwyn. What were your impressions of the club?

Tico Torres: It was a great bar setting. Just walking into the place, looking at it -- you couldn't make that up in Hollywood. It's true. It's just perfect for the video's relaxed setting.

Q. What made you go into this country direction?

Richie Sambora: Obviously, you know, the surprise success of "Who Says You Can't Go Home" (a country crossover hit from 2005) to becoming the number one track and, also, it really comes down to songwriting. And in Nashville, there's a lot of great songwriters and we kind of fancy ourselves as good songwriters also. Because it seems that we get to people with our lyrics and our music. So it was like a natural progression and a natural "why not try that and see what happens?"

Q. Do you think your songwriting has changed or that Nashville country has just evolved into pop music?

Sambora: It just kind of happened. And it's completely unclear that we will stay in that genre. I don't think we'll ever make another country album completely again. Well you never can say never, but it doesn't sound like that we're going to stay there. I think that it will always be a piece of our sound. The Rolling Stones had a lot of country elements to them in the beginning of their records. There's a definite link between country and rhythm and blues down there. There's some Southern twang blues that goes on that really created rock and roll so it's going to be an element. I think that's going to stay in our music somewhat. To say that country music is moving back in the pop direction, on the contrary, it has now moved back to a more country kind of thing. I don't think that it's moving in the pop direction anymore. I think that's what was happening when "Who Says You Can't Go Home" became a number one country single: It was really moving in the pop rock direction. And I think Nashville is a very, very cliquey place and I think they held it back this time. And they went back to what real country is about. Our album couldn't have been more successful in the country market if it wasn't for that.

Q. So you didn't just try to write country songs, you traveled there to soak up the vibe.

Sambora: We walked in there with a blank pad and a pen. We had no idea what was going to go on. And we kind of cruised -- Jon and I were just like -- he's got a rent-a-car and we went over to people's houses and just wrote. And it was mind-blowing. We just had a blast. There's a lot of great, great songwriters in Nashville and we wanted to plug in and see what was going on. We just love Nashville. It's a fantastic town. As far as musicians go, it's the Hollywood of music. When you're an actor, you want to go to Hollywood. When you're a musician, you want to go to Nashville.

Q. Did "Lost Highway" come out the way you envisioned it when the project first started?

Torres: Honestly, it was a work in progress. You know, there was no vision. That was the beauty of it. It was spontaneous in the … way it came about and also the recording of it and doing half in Los Angeles and half in Nashville. And it was beautiful to see it formulate. It's like a seed growing into a plant and then bearing fruit. We had no idea how it was going to turn out and that was probably the best part about it.

Q. Who do you consider your contemporaries considering that many of the bands you started out alongside of aren't together anymore?

Sambora: That's an interesting question. You know, I don't there's any kind of time limit or anything like that on contemporaries. I mean, I think that you move in a contemporary position because of your success, your relevancy to your fans and what's happening in the marketplace at the time. So for me, I think our contemporaries could be anywhere from the Rolling Stones to Aerosmith and U2 to the Foo Fighters, and bands that are out there today working hard.

Q. What parallels do you see with how it is today working in music with how it was back in the 1980s?

Sambora: The parallels would be the things that still work in music and that get to people: really good songs and great live performances. I think that that's why we're still around. Obviously, the music business has changed because of technology. All the downloading and the business part, the business model has not caught up to any of that stuff. So I think for the newer bands that are coming out today, it's a bit harder to crack that nut, so to speak.

Q. After so many albums were you ever surprised when a song takes on a life of its own?

Sambora: "Who Says You Can't Go Home" was one of them. We are the first rock band that ever had a number one country hit for a couple of weeks. That was something that we all kind of scratched our heads at.

Torres: "Living on a Prayer" almost didn't make it.

Sambora: After we wrote that song, Jon and I were in a taxicab in New York and it was rainy day, just like it is here in New York today, and we just had finished, we completed the first verse and chords. And he looked at me and said, "Well that's good, we'll probably give it away to a movie soundtrack" and I tell him, "What are you, crazy?" (laughs) So, I mean, you never know sometimes.

Q. Did Jon's aspiring movie career ever lead any of you to think about breaking up?

Sambora: Nope. Hey, everybody has their thing outside this band. And it's very, very important that everybody has an individual kind of nourishment outside and we all welcome that.

David Bryan: Our day job is probably the best one you can have so we're all quite content and we spread out and do different things. I've got a Broadway show coming in '09 and there's actually two of them coming, so there's a lot of activity outside of the band. But no, we would never stop.

It's so much fun, I always said, the most fun you could have with your clothes on.

Merci à Jovi de Bonjovi france pour la traduction.Voici la traduction réalisée par Sophie (Jovi) d'une interview récente de Richie, Dave et Tico :

Q:L'été dernier vous étiez à Chicago pour filmer la vidéo de Lost Highway au club Fitgerald en dehors de la ville à Berwyn. Quelles étaient vos impressions sur ce club?
Tico : L'agencement du bar était vraiment super; on ne peut pas refaire ça à Hollywood. C'est la réalité, c'était juste parfait pour le côté relax de la vidéo.

Q:Qu'est ce qui vous a fait aller vers la direction country?
Richie : Clairement,le succès surprise de Who Says et aussi la composition des chansons. Et à Nashville, il y a beaucoup de superbes compositeurs et on se considère aussi un peu comme de bons compositeurs. Car il semble que nous touchions les gens avec nos paroles et notre musique.
Alors c'était une progression naturelle, un "pourquoi ne pas essayer et voir ce qui se passe?"

Q:Pensez vous que votre manière de composer a changé, ou que le country de Nashville a juste évolué vers la pop music?
Richie : ça c'est juste produit. Et ce n'est absolument pas clair si nous allons rester dans ce genre.
Je ne crois pas que nous allons jamais refaire un album complètement country. Bon, on ne peut jamais dire jamais, mais il ne semble pas qu'on va rester dans ce genre.
Je pense que ce sera toujours une partie de notre son. Les Stones avaient beaucoup d'éléments country au début dans leurs disques. Je pense que ça va rester dans notre musique dans une certaine mesure.
Dire que la country music revient vers la pop; au contraire, c'est maintenant redevenu quelque chose de bien plus country. Je ne pense pas que ça se dirige vers la pop. Je pense que c'est ce qui s'est produit quand Who Says est devenu numéro 1 country : la country allait vraiment vers la pop.
Et je pense qu'à Nashville, ils l'ont retenu, et ils sont revenu vers ce qu'est la vraie country. Notre album n'aurait pas pu avoir plus de succès dans le marché country sans cela.

Q:Donc vous n'avez pas simplement essayé d'écrire des chansons country, vous avez voyagé là bas pour sentir le 'vibe' :
Richie: Nous sommes entrés avec un bloc note vide et un stylo. Nous n'avions aucune idée de ce qui se passait. Et on a fait un voyage, Jon avait loué une voiture, et nous sommes allés vers les gens et dans leur maison et avons juste écrit.
Et c'était hallucinant. Il y a énormément de bons compositeurs à Nashville et on voulait se brancher et voir ce qu'il se passait.
Nous aimons simplement Nashville, c'est une ville fantastique. Du côté musique, c'est le Hollywood de la musique. Quand vous êtes acteur, vous voulez juste aller à Hollywood. Quand vous êtes musicien, vous voulez aller à Nashville.

Q: Est-ce que Lost Highway est comme vous l'aviez prévu quand le projet a commencé?
Tico : Honnetement, c'était un travail en cours. Vous savez, il n'y avait pas de vision de ce que ça donnerait. C'était la beauté de tout ceci. C'était spontané ... Nous n'avions aucune idée de comment ça allait tourner et c'est probablement ce qu'il y avait de mieux dans l'écriture.

Q: De qui vous sentez-vous contemporains, si on considère que beaucoup des groupes avec qui vous avez commencé ne sont plus ensemble maintenant ?
Richie : C'est une question intéressante. Vous savez, je ne pense pas qu'il y ait de limite de temps ou quelque chose comme ça dans le fait d'être contemporains. Je veux dire, je pense que vous passez dans une situation contemporaine à cause de votre succès, de votre pertinence envers vos fans et de ce qu'il se passe dans le marché à ce moment là.
Donc pour moi, je pense que nos contemporains pourraient être n'importe où des Stone à Aerosmith, de U2 aux Foo Fighters, et les groupes qui travaillent dur aujourd'hui.

Q: Quels points communs voyez vous dans la manière dont fonctionne la musique aujourd'hui par rapport aux années 80 ?
Richie : Les points communs seraient les choses qui fonctionnent toujours en musique et qui touchent les gens : de vraiment bonnes chances et de superbes performances live. Je pense que c'est pour cela que nous sommes toujours là.
Le marché de la musique a changé à cause de la technologie. Tout le téléchargement et la partie business, le modèle de marché n'a pas suivi avec tout ça. Je pense que pour les nouveaux groupes qui sortent aujourd'hui, c'est plus difficile.

Q: Après autant d'albums, n'avez vous jamais été surpris quand une chanson prenait vie d'elle même ?
Richie : Who Says a été une de ces chansons. Nous sommes le premier groupe rock a avoir jamais été numéro 1 country pour plusieurs semaines. C'est quelque chose qui nous a réellement surpris.

Tico : Living on a prayer a failli ne pas voir le jour ...

Richie : Après avoir écrit cette chanson, Jon et moi étions dans un taxi à New York, il pleuvait, nous avions juste fini, nous avions complété le premier couplet et les accords. Il m'a regardé et a dit : "C'est bien, on va probablement le donner pour une bo de film" et je lui ai dit "tu es fou?" (rire). Ce que je veux dire : des fois, on ne sait jamais ce qu'il va se passer.

Q: Est-ce que le fait que Jon voulait faire une carrière cinématographique a conduit l'un de vous à penser à vous séparer?
Richie : Non. Hey, tout le monde a son truc en dehors du groupe. Et c'est très très important que chacun ait quelque chose de personnel en dehors.
David : Notre travail est probablement le meilleur qu'on peut avoir, nous sommes tous contents et on va aussi faire différentes choses. J'ai un show à Broadway qui sort en 2009, et il y en a 2 qui sortent là, donc il y a beaucoup d'activités en dehors du groupe. Mais non, nous n'allons jamais arreter.
C'est tellement de plaisir, je dis toujours, le plus de plaisir qu'on peut avoir tout en ayant ses habits!

Richie Sambora avait atteint le fond du baril
Julie Rhéaume   

Le guitariste Richie Sambora.
Lorsque le guitariste de Bon Jovi Richie Sambora a été admis dans une clinique de désintoxication l'an dernier, il avait atteint «le fond du baril», dit-il.

«J'avais divorcé (d'Heather Locklear). J'étais impliqué dans une bataille pour la garde de mon enfant. J'étais accro à l'alcool et mon père se mourait», a dit le musicien à People mardi, avant un concert bénéfice donné par son groupe à New York.

Sambora vivait plusieurs problèmes graves. C'était l'enfer, dit-il. «Réussir à m'extirper de ces ruines (qu'étaient devenues ma vie) fut une victoire triomphale pour moi», raconte le musicien.

En Septembre dernier, l'homme a été admis à la clinique de désintoxication Cirque Lodge, en Utah. Le soutien de ses amis, de son groupe et tout particulièrement de sa mère l'a aidé à se remettre sur pied.

Enfant unique, le guitariste est très proche de sa mère Joan. Il était aussi proche de son père, Adam, qui a mené une longue bataille contre le cancer du poumon avant de rendre l'âme l'an dernier. «C'est comme être en train de se noyer dans un océan de désastres», affirme Sambora au sujet de la manière de composer avec cette maladie.

Bon Jovi a débuté une tournée d'une durée d'un an au profit du Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, à Manhattan, là où Adam Sambora fut traité.

Sambora est le père d'Ava, 10 ans, née de son mariage à Locklear. Il aimerait avoir d'autres enfants, a-t-il dit à People. Il aime bien être papa.

Il dit fréquenter quelqu'un après avoir rompu avec Denise Richards en 2007. Toutefois, «je ne veux pas en parler présentement», a-t-il ajouté.

On a steel horse Bon Jovi rides to top of the charts

Article from:

The Daily Telegraph

Bon
 

Revival ... Bon Jovi have eight albums in this week's ARIA Top 100.

THERE's nothing like a stadium tour to boost a band's record sales.
On the back of their sell-out tour, American rockers Bon Jovi have enjoyed a surprising revival in the Australian music charts.

The band have landed eight albums in this week's ARIA Top 100 in the wake of their first tour in seven years, which rocked Sydney's Acer Arena last week.

Bon Jovi's hit 1987 album, which features singles Livin' On A Prayer, You Give Love A Bad Name and Wanted Dead Or Alive, re-entered the chart at No. 28.

Slippery When Wet reached No. 1 in Australia when it was originally released and went on to sell six times platinum. It has sold 28 million copies worldwide.

The band's next two biggest records, 1992' s Keep The Faith and 1988's New Jersey, landed in the chart at No. 39 and No. 41 respectively.

The four-times platinum live set Cross Road scored the No. 57 spot, followed closely by 1995's These Days at No. 58 and the band's eponymous 1984 debut at No. 59.

Finally, Bon Jovi's 1985 set 7800 Fahrenheit, their least commercially successful album and one which failed to originally chart in Australia, grabbed the No. 66 position.

The Bon Jovi tour of Australia wound up at Subiaco Oval in Perth last Friday.
