Bon Jovi new album cover for '2020' inspired by picture of President John F. Kennedy

The cover for the new Bon Jovi album “2020” has a dash of Camelot.

The cover picture of Jon Bon Jovi, alone with sunglasses and a pensive fist on his chin, was inspired by a 1962 image of President John F. Kennedy by Michael Ochs, said Bon Jovi Monday, Feb. 24 on the band's web site.

“The inspiration for the cover of ‘Bon Jovi 2020’ is a photo of John F. Kennedy, taken by Michael Ochs in August of 1962,” Bon Jovi said. “It pictures the president reflecting both literally and figuratively upon a crowd in California. I saw this photo and wondered what the president was thinking. Since there are so many socially conscious songs on the record and my admiration of the photo of JFK, I asked photographer Clay McBride to capture it as the cover of ‘Bon Jovi 2020.’”

“2020,” Bon Jovi’s follow up to 2016's “This House is Not for Sale,” will have more have more “socially conscious” themes, previously said frontman Jon Bon Jovi. Those include gun control, veterans’ issues, politics, the meaning of family, and more.
