Nothing went wrong - they were great albums. Why didn't people buy them? Why do more people buy The spice Girls, Westlife and Bieber albums than buy Gotthard, Talisman or Jeff Scott Soto albums? Because sales figures don't equate to good music but a massive variety of factors. There are so many artists who couldn't sell out a shed, and yet I'd rather listen to them than some mega selling boy band because their music is better. After all - musically Richie's solo albums are much better than Jon's, yet I bet they didn't sell nearly as well.

However, Jon's work ethic is incredible and without it the band wouldn't have lasted. It's hard to disagree with Desmond about that. It's the main reason Bon Jovi not only remained successful but went on to even greater success after the Grunge triggered melodic rockalypse. The other bands took their success for granted, but Jon is much smarter than that and he more than put the work in to building the band. The rewards have been well earned and speak for themselves.
