Jon Bon Jovi to keynote DOJ Antitrust event (no joke)

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  It was also the year that we first got cable and I saw the video for Livin' on a Prayer on MTV (historical reference for those of you under 40 - MTV actually played music videos back in the day).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.
