Jon Bon Jovi admits that how he gauges his success has changed drastically since his early-days topping the charts in the late-1980’s. While appearing on MSNBC’s Mavericks With Ari Melber, he was asked how he knows when he’s done good: “After a while you don’t measure success in the terms that I once have measured them by — in album sales and Number One this’s and that’s. I think for me, preserving a legacy compounded by taking the time to enjoy the fruits of my labor; and I don’t mean the monetary fruits of my labor. I mean my kids, and my wife, and the connection to the people that we’ve connected with around the world for nearly 40 years. That’s the magic.”
