"The very first day we got together we wrote 'You Give Love a Bad Name.' Then a few weeks later we wrote 'Livin' On A Prayer.' It was a magical collaboration and there was instant chemistry between us." - Desmond Child
''Desmond hasn't tried to change what we are, but to refine it slightly; to suggest extra ways that we could wring a bit more out of what we had." - Jon Bon Jovi
''A hit is something that people like to sing with, they can remember the lyrics and it's a little close to their home. Fortunately, maybe, things like ''You Give Love a Bad Name'' did that'' - Jon Bon Jovi
