NEW YORK (AP) – Jon Bon Jovi knows about rock and roll. But he acknowledges that it comes to raising a kid – no one has all the answers. Last month, his 19-year-old daughter Stephanie was found unresponsive in her college dorm room. It was an apparent heroin overdose. Bon Jovi says he appreciates “that outpouring of kindness” from people after that – but that he was “shocked as much as the next parent” at what happened. He notes when he brought his daughter home as an infant “there was no manual” – but he tried to “surround her with hugs and kisses.” Bon Jovi says he hopes there will be no more problems – but adds “no one knows the future. It is what it is.”
