Oh, Jon Bon Jovi.

We could forgive you for having a perm with a fringe in the 1980s. We could forgive wearing gold-lamé trousers so tight they looked like they’d been spray-painted on as some exotic form of torture. We could even forgive writing loads of songs about cowboys despite growing up in industrial New Jersey.
