In a recent interview with USA Today, Jon Bon Jovi opened up about his plans for retirement.
The 50-year-old singer says that while he always thinks about retiring, he just can’t resist the lure of singing on stage again.
“I can’t see in front of this tour! It’d be looking at my Dad and saying, ‘You’re going on tour.’ But then who’d have thought I’d be 50 and in my prime! I lie down every year and I think I’m going to start slowing down, but I can’t help myself, so we just go with it. We’re lucky we’ve got all generations, we’ve got children to teenagers to people in their 60s! That’s what I always hoped to do, like the Rolling Stones,” Bon Jovi said.
Jon also said that the reason he and his bandmates are still successful is because they respect their fans and always give them a show to remember.
“The secret of our success is hard work, good luck and being true, and we never disappoint live so that people will come back. They know they’ll get their money’s worth. We won’t play for 40 minutes then throw a tantrum,” he added.
