(ITS) A new episode of the syndicated radio show In The Studio: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands celebrates the 30th anniversary of Bon Jovi's breakthrough album Slippery When Wet. The show sent over these details:

No hyperbole here: it is impossible to overstate how massively popular Bon Jovi's third album Slippery When Wet was soon after its release in Summer 1986, or how influential its sound and success were for the rest of the Eighties. Slippery When Wet would produce three Top 10 singles, "You Give Love A Bad Name", "Living On A Prayer" (both going # 1), and "Wanted Dead Or Alive". The album would go on to sell in excess of twenty-eight million copies worldwide.

Jon Bon Jovi and former Bon Jovi guitarist, songwriter Ritchie Sambora share with In The Studio host Redbeard the stories behind this blockbuster album.

Jon Bon Jovi says, "Bang! 'Shot through the heart and you're to blame, you give love a bad name'. As soon as the needle hit that record in 1986, our lives changed."

Ritchie Sambora adds, "We learned a lot and we became a tight unit. I don't think we really wrote any great songs until Slippery..."

Also In The Studio will preview the title song to the new forthcoming Bon Jovi album This House is Not for Sale. Stream the episode here.
