Tonight’s mystery artist’s first professional recording was on a Star Wars Christmas Album, no lie you think you know who he is??

The year was 1980 and Star Wars was a global phenomenon. Summer had brought us “The Empire Strikes Back” so why wouldn’t Christmas bring you Holiday greetings from R2-D2, C3PO and Jon Bon Jovi. Don’t know if he is proud of the effort or if he doesn’t watch Star Wars movies any more but it certainly is something Jon got that the rest of the musical world will never know. The band Bon Jovi would officially form in 1978 but would have to wait until 'Slippery When Wet' and MTV would make them a household name.

Here they are with tonight's featured song. Let's just say he's come a ways.


To prove you can't make this kind of stuff up.
