Apparently not content with "just" being the frontman of one of the '80s biggest rock bands, Jon Bon Jovi has had success in the music, acting and business world outside of his namesake group. He's released a pair of solo albums – 1990's 'Blaze of Glory' soundtrack and 1997's 'Destination Anywhere' – as well as appearing in over a dozen films, and television series such as 'Ally McBeal' and 'Sex and the City.' In addition to his considerable charitable works, Bon Jovi also owned an Arena Football League team years before anybody from Kiss or Motley Crue did – and has made at least two efforts to buy part of a National Football League team in recent years.
