Because although Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi cross over at New Jersey roots level, there's a credibility gulf between their outputs that's heightened by their most recent releases.
What About Now is the title of Bon Jovi's 12th studio album, but the singer doesn't appear to have adequate answers for his own question. The title track claims to stand up for "the restless... the lonely... the desperate... the hungry..." but all Bon Jovi can offer is a string of the most wretched clichés pinched from The Boss's wastepaper basket. "You wanna start a fire? It only takes a spark," he begins, and goes downhill from there.
