Helping people help themselves
For more than four decades, Bon Jovi have filled stadiums around the world. In the lead up to the band’s latest Australian tour, Doug Wallen talks to drummer Tico Torres about how the once-shaggy-haired rockers keep that Blaze of Glory burning. And Bon Jovi über-fan Beth Heath explains why she’s still Livin’ on a Prayer.
Also in this edition:
Zoe Barron gives her spin on Cycle Polo; Rod Myer faces the legacy of genocide in two countries; bookworm Chris Flynn quits reading and loses the literary plot; Doug Wallen finds out why Madness frontman Graham ‘Suggs’ McPherson is neither tired of London, nor life; and in Roving Eye, photographer Simon Davidson focuses on the spectators of night-time drag races.
This edition’s ‘Vendor Profile’ is Dennis from Brisbane. And we have ‘Streetsheet’ contributions from Ricky H in Adelaide; Gary B, David S and Richard C in Sydney; Les in Maryborough, Vic, and Shannon B in Melbourne. Plus there’s a priceless pic of Melbourne vendor Craig looking pretty ‘horsey’, while selling our Spring Racing edition (Ed#444). Giddy-up!
