Jon Bon Jovi addressed the coronavirus pandemic and the upcoming multimedia Jersey 4 Jersey fundraiser set for April 22nd with Bruce Springsteen, and others. Bon Jovi, who also stepped up in the wake of the devastation New Jersey faced during Hurricane Sandy starting his JBJ Soul Kitchen, explained to USA Today: “These are our people and in these times of need we all come together.
COVID-19 has hit as close to home as possible for the New Jersey rocker, with his 17-year-old son Jacob getting slammed with the virus, and bandmates David Bryan and touring percussionist Everett Bradley both recovering from COVID-19.
Bon Jovi revealed: “Everett had it bad. He's about 85 percent on the road to recovery.” Regarding Bryan, Bon Jovi said, “He had it hard but I’ve spoken to him this week and he sounds so much better.”
