So Ben Jones of Absolute Radio in the UK was going to interview Jon Bon Jovi about the upcoming Bon Jovi album “The Circle,” and he asked fans to submit questions. And Teresa did, first a list of 8 or so and then a few more individual ones.
This is from Teresa Bridges, who I think must have sent about 5,000 questions, she would much rather be standing here than me, but this is the question: “Help us out, for all of us who are battling our obsession with you: give us a fault or two of yours.”
Didn’t get a conclusive answer from him to that question (although she did finally learn a new personal fact about Jon that she probably could have done without, and which she realized has been used as the promo for the show for the last few days) but as it turned out, out of the four fan questions Jones asked, two of them were actually from Teres because he mistakenly asked another of hers and attributed it instead to a fan from Edinburgh. Now she’s conflicted about how excited to be, and feeling a bit bad for the fan who’s real question didn’t get used.
(Well, not too conflicted. She’s still psyched. Hell, she’s been bouncing off the walls for days ever since she got the e-mail response that her question was chosen and “Jon says hi.”)
Personally, I think that if two of her questions were chosen out of the hundreds or thousands Jones received, she should get a crack at interviewing Jon herself. Well? Entertainment Weekly? Rolling Stone? Hello?
Note: the podcast may not be the entire interview, we don’t know yet. There were a few places where it was edited, and it’s supposed to run in four parts from Monday to Thursday, so it’s entirely possible there are more questions than just the four. Still seriously cool, though.
