Bon Jovi Book: Runaway Hit for HarperCollins?

Bon Jovi, the ’80s rock band that gave single-tone hair and regular-wash jeans a bad name, has signed a book deal with HarperCollins.

Bon Jovi: When We Were Beautiful, which uses heretofore unpublished photos and personal accounts to chronical the band’s “highs and lows” “on stage, on the road, and at home,” will be released next fall in honor of the group’s 25th anniversary, according to a press release from HarperCollins. A documentary bearing the book’s title also will be released.
