My wife loved him on Ally McBeal. I was in the 7th grade when Slippery When Wet came out and bought the album at record store Sam Goody's in fall 1986. I got it on cassette. It was an awesome album. It was also the year that we first got cable and I saw the video for Livin' on a Prayer on MTV (historical reference for those of you under 40 - MTV actually played music videos back in the day). I am so excited that Jon Bon Jovi will be providing a keynote at the DOJ music licensing workshop. Clearly this must be the brainchild of the coolest person I know at DOJ - Jeff Wilder in EAG. I am sure that Jeff listened to Van Halen and Bon Jovi back in 1986 and may have even been into glam rock like Poison and Motley Crue. I just cannot imagine him as a British new wave sort of guy or someone who listened to Madonna.
