Jon Bon Jovi shared that his songwriting has matured with his aging 

Jovi had his fair share of struggles in his rockstar career, his recent comeback with his band received criticism for his changing voice. However, amid these challenges, there is still one thing that plays in favor of the singer as he grows old. Jovi opened up about how he feels that his songwriting has deepened with his increasing age. 

The Bon Jovi frontman remarked that he has had a plethora of personal experiences, thanks to his 62 years of age, to draw inspiration and write new songs. He shared, “I have a grander palette to write from. More life experience. I think that every record reflects somehow who I am at that time.”

It seems like Jovi is going to follow McCartney in writing songs during their old ages as the former finds more flare in songwriting these days. Fans can surely expect Jovi’s upcoming songs to be impressive, as he reflects on his personal experiences for inspiration.
