Jon Bon Jovi is going down memory lane as he looks back at his life as a rock and roll legend fronting one of the most successful bands of all time, Bon Jovi, with a career that spanned four decades, in a new Hulu docuseries, Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story.

Ahead of its debut, Jon sat down with Good Morning America anchor Michael Strahan for an ABC special, Michael Strahan x Jon Bon Jovi: Halfway There, to discuss his life and legacy.

GMA aired a sneak peek of the interview on Wednesday, April 23, in which the singer opened up about his career’s effect on his relationship. 

Jon has been married to his high school sweetheart Dorothea Hurley for over 30 years. When Strahan mentioned that his success must have been “tough on a relationship,” Jon replied, “That’s nonsense.”

“I got away with murder. I say it again on camera,” he added. “I’m a rock and roll star. I’m not a saint. You know, I’m not saying that, that there weren’t a hundred girls in my life. I’m Jon Bon Jovi. It was pretty good.”

Despite all the attention he received from being in the spotlight, Jon said they weren’t worth being entertained.

“If you think I was ever gonna jeopardize anything for believing the narcissist in me was real? What a stupid thing to do,” he said. “What kind of excess does a man need that’s gonna fuel that fire. It is just not worth it. Not worth it.”

For a full interview, tune in to Michael Strahan x Jon Bon Jovi: Halfway There, which airs Sunday, April 28, at 10 pm E.T. on ABC.
