Which Rock Star’s First Professional Appearance Was On A Star Wars Christmas Album?

Bono
Billy Idol
Jon Bon Jovi
Alice Cooper

Answer: Jon Bon Jovi

Performing artists get their starts in the most unlikely of places, but in the case of rock star Jon Bon Jovi, that unlikely place is so unlikely it’s probable you’d never in a million years outright guess it.

The first professionally produced album Bon Jovi appeared on was none other than the 1980 Star Wars Christmas album, Christmas in the Stars. Bon Jovi makes an appearance, billed under his birth name John Bongiovi, as the lead vocalist in “R2-D2 We Wish You A Merry Christmas.”

Despite how we might view the album from the present, it sold remarkably well–during the 1980 Christmas holiday, 150,000 copies of the album flew off the shelves.
