NEW YORK, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Bon Jovi's former tour manager, Richard Bozzett, has penned a memoir about the New Jersey rock band's rise to fame, SDB Publishing said Monday.
"Jon Bon Jovi has publicly condemned the book and has criticized me in the media because I know a lot about Jon and the band that he would prefer to leave in his past," Bozzett said in a statement.
"Sex, Drugs and Bon Jovi" features stories and photographs of the band's life of excess on the road;
details of a racy, never-published photo shoot the band posed for; and the alleged secret of the drug ring funding the band's management behind-the-scenes, the author said.
"Bon Jovi fans deserve an inside look into the band's early years," Bozzett added. "Working and living with the band on the road from 1983 through 1989, I was there for every moment, and want to share it with the fans. Our inner circle was like a family."
