Watch: Jon Bon Jovi shares the Christmas story of his first guitar


So, what do you want for Christmas?

In 1975, a 13-year old Jon Bon Jovi, known then as John Bongiovi, wanted a guitar.

“I looked around and there's no guitar and I tried to pull that Santa Claus stuff right there,” Bon Jovi said. “I was 13 and they weren't going for it. I explained to my parents that I really wanted this thing and there wasn't one.”

Rock 'n' roll history might have been altered if he didn't get one.
