Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora rocked the Billboard charts at # 7 out of 100  with “Dead or Alive.”  They released on their album Slippery When Wet in 1986, and later re-recorded and released as a single in 1987.

John Frances Bongiovi, Jr., hails from Perth Amboy, New Jersey.  He is quoted as having said that  Bob Seger’s song, “Turn the Page,” inspired “Dead or Alive.”
