Bon Jovi tops the Billboard charts this week for the fifth time with their new release “What About Now”. The Rock Art Show pays tribute to Bon Jovi by offering two recently discovered 1985 photographs of Jon Bon Jovi at a special introductory price, available exclusively through the Rock Art Show.
These never before seen images are from January 1985, when the band was staying in Philadelphia to record its second album, 7800 Fahrenheit, over a year before they became a multiplatinum act with Slippery When Wet.

Randy Alexander was the main music guy at the Trenton Times in the 1980s and ’90s, and was introduced to Bon Jovi while they were promoting their first album. Randy explains, “The band was hanging around the Trenton area – and Philly – a lot, so we became chummy and found a way to hang out whenever they were around. Late one afternoon while they were recording, Jon called me at the paper and invited me down to the studio. I was not on assignment but thought it might be cool to take some pictures. So I grabbed my 35mm Nikkormat and arrived at The Warehouse studio in Philadelphia. Jon gave me free reign to shoot anything as a fly on the wall, and they posed for a few while they were going about their business, too. I used all natural lighting so I wouldn’t intrude. We had a great time.”
