The rocker has been an influential character in the music scene, inspiring fans with songs such as It’s My Life and Livin’ on a Prayer.

Despite the wealth of new artists, the 50-year-old worries people are no longer as interested in good songs.

‘The young boy band thing has its place,’ he told British magazine Star.

‘But you can’t compare One Direction to the likes of Adele or Mumford & Sons. Their talent is invigorating. I’m glad to see talent continuing because I worry this generation isn’t paying that much attention to music.’

These days, many artists find their way into the spotlight thanks to talent shows such as The X Factor and The Voice.

Jon isn’t sure his band Bon Jovi would have succeeded under these circumstances.

‘No, I had 21 years to write my first record,’ he explained.

‘It’s hard because they’re thrust into a huge spotlight and they’re expected to have a record on a par with the greats six weeks later.’

Personal relationships can also be challenging when living the life of the rich and famous.

The star married his high school sweetheart Dorothea Hurley in 1989 and believes he just has good fortune when it comes to love.

‘I just got very lucky,’ he smiled.

‘I’ve got a great girl who still loves me and I got it right the first time.’
