Elvis Inspires

Elvis still inspires people. Last week we mentioned he inspired the Dolce And Gabbana designers, now he inspires the rock band Bon Jovi for the cover of a new 4 CD/DVD set with the title "100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans Can`t Be Wrong".

Bon Jovi has a large fan base,I was a kid when they first made it big.I wasn't a fan then, but am now.I see this is another way John is paying tribute to elvis.He and the band are very big elvis fans.In one of his videos, I think it's for the song living on a prayer, he is wearing a long denim jacket, that has elvis on the back from the aloha show.

Bon jovi have a solid fanbase, millions love them, dont get me wrong its not my sort of music, but they have stood the test of time and fads etc. Its a great tribute to Elvis and should be viewed as such, its another introduction, indirectly, to Elvis the King!

Weird reactions on this cover... I think it's really funny.
The Clash copied on Elvis LP cover with the "London Calling" album and now Bon Jovi was "inspired" by an Elvis album. See it as a tribute, not a rip-off... But I am surprised to see that there are so many Bon Jovi fans :-)

Stop whining on! Why are you all so upset? Beats me. This is just another indication of how Elvis inspired other major artists. It's a sort of tribute. They're not my favorite band but you can't deny their success. Good luck to them.

Don't be too harsh on the boy. You've got to like anybody who pays homage to the King... apparently at his concerts Bon Jovi has a permanent backstage pass with Elvis's name on it... just on the off chance.

What a copycat and thief! The title should read: 100,000,000 Bon Jovi Fans Are Definately Wong!!!

Rip Off! Although flattering to Elvis. You's think however they could be more creative instead of stealing this design. Also maybe they better lower that number to 100,000.

well, way back in the early eighties I guess Rod Stewart did the same thing, in a red dress... was it a best of? don't be too hard on Bon Jovi. he surely must have the golden records vol.2 on his own shelf... ;-) Once again another evidence about Elvis Presleys influence on pop culture and design.

To DAB2355: depends on how many drinks you had before you started counting. Tacky cover BTW. It looks sooooo much better with Elvis on it.

Are there 100,000,000 Bon Jovi fans?
