Two years and 11 million records later, Bon Jovi came to Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens in July of ‘86 on the ‘Slippery When Wet’ tour and made only one other stop – that’s right – at MuchMusic. The fans filled the parking lot and watched Christopher Ward barbeque with Bon Jovi, who insisted on doing the cooking.
In 1984, Christopher Ward helped launch Muchmusic as Canada's first VJ. A former Second City Touring Company member and acclaimed songwriter, Ward has written for Diana Ross, Hilary Duff, The Backstreet Boys and many others. Ward received the 1990 Songwriter of the Year JUNO Award for Alannah Myles’ hit, "Black Velvet".
