Sex, Drugs and Bon Jovi

07/23/2010
.
Steven Adler's new autobiography apparently isn't the only rock tell-all that will be released next week. We received an announcement that Bon Jovi's former tour manager Richard Bozzett will release Sex, Drugs and Bon Jovi on July 26th. Here is the info that we were sent about the release:

Bon Jovi has sold more than 130 million records worldwide and performed in front of more than 34 million fans but little is known about how Bon Jovi rose to superstardom as he doesn't often talk about the early years.

For the first time, take an all-access backstage ride into the early years (1983-89) through tour manager Richard Bozzett's eyes in Sex, Drugs and Bon Jovi. This book visually takes you from the group's first performances in front of a few hundred fans through being an opening act to touring on their own and becoming Rock Legends.

Some items in the book of particular interest include:
Bon Jovi's managements connection to the largest cocaine and marijuana trafficking operations of their time, which led to multiple run-ins, while touring, with the DEA.
Details on Bon Jovi's use of speed prior to shows to get "amped up" and Halcion after shows to allow him to sleep
Details on how the Living on A Prayer tour saved the band for financial chaos
Never-before-released photos of the band touring, partying, family get togethers shedding a new light on the early days of these Rock Legends and a "Sex Scandal" that never leaked.

This apparently won't be a wide release as Amazon does not carry the title at press time, but we were sent a link to the book's website http://sexdrugsbonjovi.com/ - (warning the site's flash programmer thought it was a great idea to have a blaring video included that you can not mute!)

Atlas Books is also selling it at http://www.atlasbooks.com/marktplc/03053.htm

Warning: These were the only two references to this book that we could find aside from the "announcement" that was sent out to various news sites. Nor could we find a publisher listed. The Atlas site does have an 800 number you can call to order.
