When he was 17, John was working sweeping floors at his cousin Tony Bongiovi's recording studio, The Power Station. In 1980, when Meco was there recording Christmas in the Stars: The Star Wars Christmas Album, Tony recommended John for the song "R2-D2 We Wish You A Merry Christmas." This became his first professional recording (credited as John Bongiovi).
After a brief stint in the band Scandal, John attracted the attention of Atlantic Records and Mercury Records. Once Bon Jovi had put together his initial band and began playing showcases and opening for local talent as the John Bongiovi Band, they caught the attention of record executive Derek Shulman, who signed John to Mercury Records, part of the PolyGram company. Because John wanted a group name, Jerry Jaffe, A&R head at PolyGram at the time, came up with Bon Jovi, changing the spelling and rationalizing that it had the cadence of Van Halen and an oblique reference to AC/DC's, Bon Scott. The band didn't really like it. (Doc McGhee scoffed that it made the band sound like "French ice cream"). But within a week it was adopted without much fanfare. John then removed the 'h' in his first name to make it Jon. He re-emerged as Jon Bon Jovi. The group was collectively known as Bon Jovi.
With the help of their new manager Doc McGhee, the band's debut album, Bon Jovi, was released on January 21, 1984. The album went gold in the US (sales of over 500,000) and was also released in the UK. The group found themselves opening for ZZ Top at the Madison Square Garden (before their first album had been released), and for Scorpions and Kiss in Europe. They also made an appearance on Dick Clark's American Bandstand.
In 1985, Bon Jovi's second album 7800°Fahrenheit was released, but the response was poor. The leading British metal magazine Kerrang!, who had been very positive about the debut record, called the album "a pale imitation of the Bon Jovi we have got to know and learned to love." Jon Bon Jovi himself later said it could have and should have been better. The band members, in interviews, have said they will not perform live any song off that album anymore.
The turning point came when they brought in songwriter Desmond Child for their third album, Slippery When Wet. With Child co-writing many of their hits on this and future albums the band shot to super-stardom around the world with songs such as "You Give Love a Bad Name", "Livin' On A Prayer", and "Wanted Dead or Alive". The band recorded the album in Vancouver, and frequented many of Vancouver's strip clubs during their time away from the studio. The name of the album is said to be an homage to those very strip clubs.
The album has sold in excess of 26 million copies worldwide since its release in late 1986.
The next album from Bon Jovi was New Jersey released in 1988. The album was recorded very shortly after the tour for Slippery, because the band wanted to prove that they were not just a one hit wonder. The resulting album is a fan favorite and a mammoth commercial success, with hit songs such as "Bad Medicine", "Lay Your Hands on Me" and "I'll Be There for You", which are still nightly stalwarts in their live repertoire. New Jersey was a commercial smash and became the first hard rock album to spawn five Top Ten singles. "Bad Medicine" and "I'll Be There for You" both hit number one, and "Born to Be My Baby" (#3), "Lay Your Hands on Me (#7), and "Living in Sin" (#9) rounded out the list. "Blood on Blood" was also popular among fans. New Jersey was supported by video releases such as New Jersey: The Videos and Access All Areas, as well as a massive 18-month tour, originally billed The Jersey Syndicate Tour. In 1989, the band headlined the Moscow Music Peace Festival. Despite the band achieving massive success, New Jersey almost led to the end of the band as they went straight back out on the road so soon after the heavy touring for their previous album. During the New Jersey tour, singer
