‘It was not pretty,’ says Jon Bon Jovi of his prior mental health difficulties.

Jon Bon Jovi was the first to pay respect to bandmate Alec John Such, who died at 70. The singer-songwriter stated the bassist was “integral to the band’s development” before adding that he will be missed “dearly.”

With such a tremendous career, the 60-year-old Bon Jovi gives tribute to many people who helped him gain popularity. Another is his wife, Dorthea Hurley, whom he describes as “phenomenal” in supporting his mental health.
