Bon Jovi Talk Podcast - Chatting To Adam - Dublin Gig, Changing Bon Jovi Lyrics & Random Things
You will always remember the first podcast with Adam! He changes the lyrics to Bon Jovi songs and it's HILARIOUS! I mean, most of the podcast isn't even about Bon Jovi. We just go off on one... Mainly Adam... but that's why I enjoy the podcasts so much with him! Subscribe, like and enjoy!!

Bon Jovi Talk Podcast - Chatting To Jerry Braden - Runaway Tours, 2020, Concerts & Becoming A Fan
It's no secret to a lot of you that for a long time on Twitter, myself & Jerry didn't see eye to eye. The reason being, we are both such different fans. As time has gone on and things have changed in the world recently, it's actually made me and Jerry become quite good friends recently. Both had personal issues at home and whatever else and decided to put things to one side, unblock each other and we recorded a podcast. This is something I wanted for a long time. I always knew I didn't want to argue with Jerry on here, the same way I don't with anyone who comes on. The problem with Twitter, you can't get your opinion across properly. Limited characters, it can come across the wrong way and just overall, it's not very good.  I wanted to do the podcast with Jerry for the reason stated above, we are so different. I am quite critical whereas Jerry praises the band. Who is the right fan? None of us. It's just an opinion and I think that this podcast shown that.  We had a lot of fun, we spoke about a lot of topics and it's something I hope we can do again in the near future. Thank you for coming on, Jerry. Enjoy guys!

Bon Jovi Talk Podcast - Chatting To Angelo From Collateral - JBJ Cruise. Phil X & More
Here is the latest Bon Jovi Talk Podcast. This podcast was with Angelo from the rock band, Collateral. Collateral got to play on the Jon Bon Jovi Runaway To Paradise Cruise and was also support for Phil X's UK Tour. Angelo is a HUGE Bon Jovi fan so it was great to get insight from someone who is such a big fan of the band but also had to remain professional. We had a great chat about our favourite band and we shared some good stories.

Bon Jovi Talk Podcast - Chatting To Andy About No Tour, 2020 & Limitless
This is the first podcast with me & Andy for a few months. We planned to do a face to face one in February but things got in the way and then with what's going on in the world, we decided to do one over Skype again. It's always great to chat to Andy who is a very good friend of mine. We spoke about 2020, no tour & Limitless.  This podcast was recorded around midnight so we apologise for not being as crazy as usual! Enjoy.

Bon Jovi Talk Podcast - Chatting To Joseph About 2020 & UK Tour
Me & Joseph have been chatting for the last 10 years or so after following Bon Jovi set lists and such on the JoviTalk Forum so it was good to get him on the podcast. We are a similar age and have seen similar shows so our chat was in detail about the same shows we have seen. We also discussed the new album coming out later this year.

Bon Jovi Talk Podcast - Chatting To Mitch Lafon - All Things Bon Jovi & One Of The Best Stories I've Heard
It was incredible to have Mitch on. Over the past few months, I have seen Mitch post a lot about 80's Bon Jovi and always thought he may have been a fan of the older stuff but it turns out to be the other way round. Mitch's knowledge on the band is incredible and he shares a catalogue of music from the band like most of us. He told me one of the best stories I have heard at a Bon Jovi show so make sure you give it a listen.

Bon Jovi Talk Podcast - Chatting To Die Hard Fan Ollie
Ollie is a very good friend of mine and we have attended multiple Bon Jovi shows together. He has seen the band over 40 times since 2003 and has got to see some of the best shows in recent times.  This was our first ever sit down chat about our favourite band so it was good to hear Ollie talk so positively about the band.

Bon Jovi Talk - Quiz With Brian
I actually recorded this is December 2019 but I have only just got round to publishing it. This was a lot of fun to do and I think some of these questions may have been too hard... or Brian just had a really off day? Haha. Give it a listen and send me your scores over. Good luck!

Bon Jovi Talk - Lyric Quiz #1
This is the first lyrics quiz. I used to play this game a while back with a friend. We say a lyric of a song and we have to guess what song it ois from just from that one line of the song. James is the first guest to try this. Give it a go and send me your scores across.

Bon Jovi Talk Podcast - Chatting To Jason Morey From The Slippery When Wet Tribute Band
This was an interesting podcast. I had never spoke to anyone who was part of a tribute band and it was great to have Jason on as they are the ONLY affiliated Bon Jovi Tribute Band out there. Slippery When Wet have been going for 16 years and in 2019, they got invited to be on the Runaway With Jon Bon Jovi Cruises to perform some shows. Fans loved them as not only did they put on a good show but they also performed songs that Bon Jovi have never performed before which the die-hards really want to hear.   Please subscribe, like and enjoy!

Bon Jovi Talk Podcast - Chatting To Matt O'Ree - Being On Tour With Bon Jovi & The Impact It Had
It was an honour to have Matt on the Bon Jovi Talk Podcast. Matt was brought in after Bobby Bandiera departed for whatever reason and done a short stint with the band. For me, I really enjoyed his time with the band. It brought out the best in Phil X, in my opinion. Matt speaks to me about how he had to do an audition to be in the band, what it done for his career and how he still keeps in touch with some of the band

"LAST CHRISTMAS - THE MUSICAL 2" - James takes on the Bon Jovi Talk Quiz
James takes on the Bon Jovi Talk Quiz. He was the first one to try it so give this a listen to see what answers he gave. I have no idea why I keep saying 'This House Is Not For Tale Tour', though.

Bon Jovi Talk - The Quiz
This is just a little bit of fun for everyone. I planned to do a Quiz in time for Xmas but as we all know, nothing ever goes to plan around Xmas. I ended up doing this on New Years Eve and had 3 people go live doing it. I haven't uploaded that yet as I want you guys to have a go before you hear the answers. This video is just me giving you the questions so here are the rules to the quiz: NO GOOGLE. Just defeats the purpose of the fun of playing the quiz. No prizes in this game and some people have had REALLY low scores so don't worry. I allow 30 seconds to answer each question and then we move on. You can pass the question and go back to it at the end, but you get another 30 seconds and that's it. That's basically it in terms of rules. Just have fun with it and then DM me the questions on @bonjovitalk on Twitter or email me the answers at I also recommend pausing the video after each question as I go into the following question pretty quick. Enjoy.

Bon Jovi Talk Podcast Episode 20 - Discussing Bon Jovi 20/20 & THINFS Tour
This podcast is with Shane. I have done a couple of bits with Shane in the past but I felt this podcast was the most detailed with him. If you guys listened to the podcast I put up recently with Shane, you will know just how good his knowledge is on live performances so I was intrigued to get Shane's opinion on the shows he went too during the recent tour.   We also discussed the new album and what we expect.

Bon Jovi Talk Podcast - Snippet Game (Live Performances)
This episode has a slightly different version of the snippet game. Shane likes to listen to live performances more than studio versions of songs so we mixed it up and done the snippet game using live performances. Give it a go and tell me what you scored.

Bon Jovi Talk - Podcast Episode 15 - Talking To The Public About The Band, What Is Next For Bon Jovi?
This episode I was chatting to Dave who is a massive fan of Bon Jovi. Dave has been a fan for a long time now so we had a lot to discuss. We spoke about current albums and the buzz that is no longer with us when we get new material from the band.  We also spoke about how members of the public who only know a couple of songs from the band will never understand our love for the band. Also, THE SNIPPET GAME IS BACK!

Bon Jovi Talk - Podcast Episode 13 - Mark Weiss, Working With The Band, Auction, Competition
 I couldn't quite believe that this podcast was happening. I was interviewing Mark Weiss. Mark was the photographer for the band back in the 80's and 90's. Some of the bands most iconic images were taken by Mark and it was an honour to have him on the podcast.  Mark has an auction with Bon Jovi items until March 20th and has very kindly done a competition for us fans. If you go onto my twitter page @bonjovitalk you can find out more information.

Bon Jovi Talk - Podcast Episode 11 - Jake (Hugh's Stepson), His Band, Jon & Richie, HOF, Q&A
The podcast that EVERYONE has been asking for since I announced I would be doing a podcast with Jake. Jake is the stepson of the legendary bass player of Bon Jovi, Hugh McDonald. Jake has been the support act for Bon Jovi previously so it was great to chat about that experience.  Jake also spoke to me about Bon Jovi being inducted into the Hall Of Fame. Seeing Jon & Richie back together. Some stories about the two of them from Hall Of Fame. How the band and people connected to the band have been supportive. What it takes to be successful in a band. Jake also answered a Q&A.

Bon Jovi Talk - Podcast Episode 10 - What About Now Tour, Bootlegs, New Generation Of Fans
On this episode, I spoke to a 'new' fan called Shane. Shane got into the band during the 'What About Now' tour when he got to see the band for the first time. For us Bon Jovi fans, we know that the 'What About Now' tour leaves quite a sour taste in our mouths so it was interesting to get the opinion of someone who only recently got into the band.

Bon Jovi Talk - Podcast Episode 9 - KTF Era, Runaway Tours & Top 5 Guitar Solos
This episode featured Andy. Andy has been a big Bon Jovi fan for a long time now and is somebody I have spoken to for a few years now. Andy has a lot of similar views to myself so it was brilliant to chat. What I had written down, we got through half of it. A part 2 is definitely on the cards soon. Apologies for the sound issues at the start. It took us a while beforehand to get it going properly but it ended up flowing.
