Jon Bon Jovi took to social media to pitch a new song about the collective stress we're all feeling regarding the Coronavirus. In his home studio, the New Jersey rocker addressed fans, all in the same boat, and asked them to post their own verse to a new song he's writing about surviving the pandemic. Earlier this week, Bon Jovi's co-founding keyboardist David Bryan became rock's first Corona victim.
Before playing his portion of the song, Bon Jovi told fans: ["There are trying times we're going through; uncharted territory — the great unknown. But, one thing's for sure, we're gonna make it through. I did what I do best, which is to sit down with my guitar and try to put something to words — for you. Maybe to brighten up your day. Here's my idea — we write this one together. I'm gonna give you the chorus, I'm gonna give you the first verse. I'm gonna play the second verse, but you, tell me your story. Tell me what you’re goin' through. Tell me how you’re feelin'. Tell me if you’re hurtin'. Talk about that high school graduation that’s gonna be canceled. Talk about the paycheck you’re losin'. So sing your song, you and me, together. And remember when you can't do what you do, you do what you can."] SOUNDCUE (:37 OC: . . . what you can)
Bon Jovi will release its 15th album, titled, Bon Jovi 2020 on May 15th.
