well no doubt its my life helped get bon jovi back in the game. but Jon has done a great job keepin his name and band out there. They have been able to cross genres some and even their record company has done a great job.

around the time ofits my life, def leppard released euphoria and sales of that album were actually not bad...I tihnk its sold around 600,000 in the states...they had a mild hit of Promises. While I am bigger def lep fan i do tihnk its m life was a better song. but def leps record company was never that great at promoting them as well as bon jovi did..

Journey actually has done a good job at self promotion. Revelations actually sold very well in the states. A good marketing helped it, along with the deal at walmart. When their last cd came out , i saw nothing on tv about it, or any promotion.

i dont fully agree about bon jovi still attracts women..yes they do..but honestly if you go to a def lep concert there are tons of women..all ages......

its not just "old" bands having issues selling much...even newer bands are....

sadly many older bands are just satisfied to just tour and have given up all creativitity.....to me..true artist want to create no matter what.....ifmoney is an issue, these older bands have tons of it..they could easily record a new CD for next to nothing..then they could bypass everyone and sell it through their own website and on their own at concerts....

got to think outside the box..

i still believe a true artist shoudl be making new stuff...Jack blades stated awhile back that if he couldnt create new stuff he woulddie...he hasto....

just with def lep, styx etc would think that way..
