BON JOVI & MY VH-1 AWARDS 2001

The morning after... and we can celebrate! BON JOVI took home the MY VH-1 MUSIC AWARD for HOTTEST LIVE SHOW!!!! But we'll get to that. JON BON JOVI arrived at the Shrine Auditorium and gave an interview to Isaac Hayes and VH-1's Rebecca Rankin along the red carpet and gave away the big secret: JON & RICHIE were now opening the show... When the show began, the entire venue was dark except for spotlights on a small stage where Jon and Richie were sitting on stools. Richie had his double-neck acoustic guitar (and the guys were accompanied by two cellists.) And then the first notes of "HERE COMES THE SUN" were plucked on Richie's guitar and the crowd in the theatre and at home realized Jon & Richie were paying tribute to the late George Harrison. Jon & Richie sang as black & white images of George Harrison's career played on a large screen behind them. And as the performance ended, Jon said "we'll miss you, George." Jon and Richie were asked personally to play and were honored to pay tribute like this.  And then the proper awards show was underway.

JON & RICHIE sat out in the crowd the whole night. Heather Locklear was sitting next to Richie. Between Jon and Richie was Luke Ebbin, their co-producer on CRUSH (and the same producer they're currently working with on the demos for the next album.) The first award they were nominated for was My Favorite Group (Dave Matthews Band took that award home.) During the show, Eric McCormack spoke briefly with JBJ from his seat and questioned him on the dangers of leather pants... JON & RICHIE took the stage to present the award "Damn, I Wish I Wrote That Song" and gave the statuette to Dave Matthews. Gary Sinise and Kim Delaney were the presenters for the award HOTTEST LIVE SHOW and BON JOVI WON! JON & RICHIE got up to accept the award. Jon's thank yous were brief - he thanked VH-1, he thanked THE FANS, he thanked THE FAN CLUB and said the award was for the BON JOVI ROAD CREW who made sure the band put on the best show possible.



A big THANK YOU and CONGRATUATIONS

to all the fans here at BACKSTAGE WITH JON BON JOVI who voted for the guys - you won them the award! And a big congratulations to the staff of Operation Bon Jovi - we would have liked to have seen them win but they got to attend the awards and they were terrific representatives of the Bon Jovi fan community. If you missed the awards on VH-1 last night, check your local listings as VH-1 repeats the show often. For those of you outside the U.S. who did not get to watch the VH-1 awards live, check your local listings to see when your local VH-1 and TV networks may be airing the show in your part of the globe. One more thing... Jon closed his thank you speech with "we'll see you next year"... where were you a year ago? A year ago, last night (December 2nd) the band had already performed and taken home the My Favorite Video award at the very first My VH-1 Awards and then played a kick-ass sold-out show at the L.A. Forum before hosting a celebrity party after the show. That was one year ago! Imagine what we'll all be doing one year from now! A new album, new music, new tour plans... 12 months will fly by. We promise you!!!  Stay with us for the ride.
