Bon Bon Jovi

Where does Paul Grein get off saying that Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer" won't make it to the Grammys this year ("Grammy Forecast: U2 Faces Stiff Competition," Jan. 10)?

They proved to be the hottest group around in '87, despite what the U2 fans think. They showed that they have talent, unlike U2, who sing about politics and try to make "statements."

Music fans don't want to sit around and hear about politics--there's enough of that on TV. Bon Jovi shows that they have topics that people can relate to, and enjoy.

Next time you think about Grammys, think about Bon Jovi, instead of some boring group like U2.
