Joel Ellis accuses Jon Bon Jovi of stealing his song!


Recommended Posts

Yeah, I've heard the PBF story too. But the debut CD actually credits Stiles with the song writing, doesn't it?

 

What's sad is that if 'Size really does matter' is Summers' first attempt at song writing, I think ripping off another dude was the right way to go.

 

 

nevertheless the debut pbf disc is without a doubt one of finest glam albums out........

 

it's shame to know there is s sinister side to that cd.......

True. I couldn't care less who wrote it... the thing is one of my all-time fave albums and nothing will ever change that fact.

So:

 

Jon Bongiovi - Thief

 

Richie Sambora - Drunken Driver

 

Tico Torres - Bad Mullet

 

Alec Such - Shitty Bassist

 

David Bryan - Bad Perm

 

Should have locked them all up a long time ago maybe!! :lol:

 

 

in all honesty, bands have been feeding off each other for so long now it's become the norm.

i'm not condoning what jbj has "alleged" to have done but the more you listen out there the more you "re hear".

i do hope jbj makes a healthy donation to mr ellis if thats possible, after all the power ballad in questionis one of the finest compsotions EVER IMHO.

 

another point to clarify is why has joel taken his sweet time in coming out with this revelation, why not a court case, if he truely doesn't care why reveal.....? Turn it on Joel :) ( what a great song btw, one of all time faves )

its a dog eat dog world, you want it bad enough, youll go to extreme lengths to get it...

 

no-one ever got anywhere without dirtying their hands a little.....i bet most famous people have a few skeletons in their closet so to speak...

 

So are you saying that if Jon and Richie did steal other artists songs that it's okay? :unsure:

 

no, im just saying its not like theyre the only rockstars that have gotten their hands dirty in one way or another..

So it's okay because other people have done it? Or was Richie drinking? ;)

JBJ = "Copycat,Copycat,don't know what you're lookin' at"

 

is it possible to talk about Bon Jovi without the thread turning into a general pisstake? this is, after all, the place to talk about 80s stadium rock, is it not?

Just remember im not the one who starts these threads -_-

When your sense of humour was bypassed,where'd it go ?

im actually kinda interested in wether or not JBJ did rip off this guys song....when every threadlike this turns into a Bon Jovi pisstake it gets tiresome..

 

do you guys not realise that this site is primarily about Hair Metal? a style that Bon Jovi were very well known for in the 80s....they are the only decentband of our genre that you guys constantly take the piss out of, just because theyve released a couple of crap albums lately..

 

well so have Europe, Poison and Warrant, you dont take the piss out of themEVERY time theyre mentioned though, do you?

 

ok, maybe you do on the Poison one

'A couple of crap albums lately' is pushing it a little!! - try Haven't done a really decent album since 'New Jersey' 20 years ago. That fits a little better I think.
