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? <<

 

No, there are no publishing credits at all on the album, which is what originally caused the controversy.

 

The story is 100% true ... and, as far as the Bon Jovi guys ripping other people's music off I've heard that for over 2 decades now. A friend of mine even played me a demo that was done in 1985 or 86 with the exact same acapella opening (different lyrics) and intro solo as "You Give Love A Bad Name."

You complain about people talking shit about your beloved Bon Jovi but you seem to talk shit about Iron Maiden a lot knowing that it's gonna piss people(like me) off.

At least Maiden is ripping themselves off and not some other struggling band/musician.

There is a HUGE difference between writing a song that has a similar riff to another song(that's called influence) and taking a demo tape and stealing the song and calling it your own.

thats if he did that...Joel Ellis never really went anywhere JBJ did....you dont think theresa good chance he just saidthat to get noticed?

 

 

and i had a listen to that song Mustang was talking about.....only similarity is they used a 12 string guitar and a minor 3rd lick like in Wanted Dead Or Alive...but that same lick is in Layla by Eric Clapton.

 

and if he did write Ill Be There For You, they could have heard the take and subconciously ripped it off (George Harrison did it!!!)

 

i did that, i accidently ripped of Church Of Desire by Richie Sambora in one of my lyrics, it was totally unintentional though.

 

if they think of a chorus, like Ill Be There For You, and put it to a tune, the first tune that pops in their head would be this Ellis demo....even though they dont realise it.

 

besides, atleast i heard the Ted Poley song, i still havent heard Ellis' version :whistle:

I think if he wanted to be noticed he would of mentioned it around 20 years ago. :whistle:

The reason he mentioned it now is because of the article where a musician accused Jon of stealing his song.

Besides if Joel really wanted to be noticed I think he'd be telling his story to television, newspapers or magazines and not a website.

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.

 

 

Maybe thats when the scene changed and grunge and altenative entered the picture. They weren't able to rip off any more up and coming artist so they had to actually try and write their own music. :loser:

But Maiden invented that sound so they can play it all they want.

And all of Maiden albums don't sound the same. Listen to them all and get back to me.

"Aces High" sounds like "Run to the Hills"? In what universe?

"Can I Play with Madness" sounds like "Wicker Man"? I don't think so.

Yes some of their songs do sound similar but that's why they call it a "Signature Sound". :whistle:

maybe, i call it cashing in on what worked to make more hits, reusing the same old formula...

 

still, im theone that lieks Lost Highway because it sounds so different to their earlier stuff....so ill always take diversity over signature sound personally...

Cashing in? You do realise that Iron Maiden has never had a real hit single, well at least outside of the UK.

Besides "Run to Hills", which is the only song that radio ever plays, Maiden has hardly had any radio play in the US. All of their videos were only played on Headbangers Ball back in the day and not during daylight hours.

But they still sold gold and platinum in the US because of how awesome they are live, which is what makes a great band a great band. And for the record Maiden has never written or recorded an album in Nashville. :whistle:

    • Everyone's heard Maiden's cover of the Skyhoos song women In Uniform. Came across this one of Horror Movie, which is also pretty cool.    
    • From Frontiers: Stardust, a Hungarian melodic rock/AOR band, will release their much anticipated debut full-length on October 9, 2020. One of the hottest new AOR bands to come out of the underground European scene, Stardust's independently released self-titled debut EP stirred up quite a buzz in the underground melodic rock scene. The band were put to the attention of Frontiers' staff during one of the Frontiers Rock Festivals. Impressed with the band's melodic rock stylings on their debut EP, Frontiers moved swiftly to sign the band to the roster. Of the band's sound, vocalist Adam Stewart says, "We love Def Leppard, Winger, Journey and all the 80's stuff..So, we took those influences and mixed it in with our own 'Stardust' way of doing things. " Of notable mention is that none other than the mighty Mark Spiro (Bad English, House of Lords, Giant) and Swedish guitar hero Tommy Denander helped the guys with songwriting and production for their debut album. "One day I got a note from Mark Spiro! He wrote, 'Hey man, I found a good song that you would really love, what do you think?' I immediately listened to the song and it blew my mind! '2nd Hand Love' is a typical Spiro song with a magical atmosphere and a catchy chorus. I jumped right on it and made a new, modern kinda musical arrangement for the song. A riff centered verse, a bluesy chorus and a brand new intro part," explains Stewart of first single, '2nd Hand Love'. “Our first EP got really good feedback from the fans, not only from Hungary, but from around the world,” says Stewart. “I am certain that our debut album will be enjoyed by even more melodic rock fans thanks to our new cooperation with Frontiers. Stardust plays AOR/Melodic Rock with catchy melodies and lyrics, so Frontiers is truly a perfect home for us!" Founded by two friends, Adam Stewart (lead vocals) and Tim Keeley (drums) in 2015, the band is rounded out by Facey (lead guitar and vocals), Dave Legrand (keyboard), and Ben Martin (bass and vocals). The group's style is an amalgam of the classic melodic hard rock and AOR genres, with hooky choruses, beautiful keyboards, vocal harmonies, and loud guitars in the style of their favorite mid-80's bands, bringing to life this well beloved music in the 21st century. Stardust is the latest in a long line of amazing AOR/Melodic Rock signings for the label, so be sure to stay tuned as they are truly a rising star in the melodic rock scene. Line-up: Adam Stewart - Vocals, rhythm guitars Ben Martin - Bass Dave Legrand - Keyboards Facey - Guitars Tim Keeley - Drums   Tracklist: 1. Runaway 2. Heartbreaker 3. Bullet To My Heart 4. Perfect Obsession 5. 2nd Hand Love 6. Shout It Out 7. Can’t Stop Loving You 8. Eye To Eye 9. Hey Mother 10. Blue Jeans Eyes (Bonus Track) 11. The River Is Rollin’

    • Why is it that I picture Cody walking around his neighborhood in a trench coat and gumboots? Speaking of pictures, did you not have your phone with you? You really dropped the ball on that one mate. The next time this occurs I expect full video footage accompanied by a "meet the cast" video extra.  Don't let us down again! You're better than that.  
    • I would've watched I would've asked to join the fun as well...
    • Of course you'd watch any anyone who says otherwise is being untruthful.  Out of curiosity, did you romanticise yourself as you watched? 
    • Agree about Nirvana (liking them, that is).
    • Always liked Nirvana even though most people on this forum blame them for the grunge wave.....also I don't mind occasionally listening to Johnny Cash and Gordon Lightfoot....
