Bon Jovi Talks Getting Advice on New Album from Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney
The day has finally arrived! Bon Jovi 2020--originally set for release earlier this year-but delayed due to Covid–hit the shelves, and front man Jon Bon Jovi has been making the rounds with interviews, including an appearance on “Good Morning America.”
The extra time gave Bon Jovi the chance to seek critiques and a little help from his friends, Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen.
“‘Bruce came over to my house and we sat down and listened to 2020 and [Bruce’s upcoming album] Letter to You,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer tells the Mirror.
“We’re both from New Jersey and have known each other long enough not to pull any punches. But he applauded 2020...and his album’s great,” Jon adds.
“It was the same when I played it for Paul, just the two of us in a room,” Jon says, referring to the Beatle legend. “I hadn’t finished recording [the song] ‘Lower the Flag,’ so I picked up a guitar and played it in person. Singing a new song live in front of a Beatle took some courage.”
