    Jon Bon Jovi was the victim of a (very painful) torn calf muscle on Friday night during a concert at the Meadowlands in his beloved home state of New Jersey. It did not stop him, however, from seeing those million faces and rocking them all! YouTube footage of the show proved that JBJ was limping and in pain after the injury, but nothing stopped the rock.

    "Jon Bon Jovi sustained a torn calf muscle," a spokesperson for the Jov told People. "Jon made light of the injury and went on to close the show with their hit, 'Living On a Prayer.' The band ended the night together, thanking the capacity hometown crowd, and assisting Jon off the stage." That is consummate professionalism. Most rockers with weaker DNA would have whined and complained and called off the show but not JBJ. He played through the pain, like one of the arena football players on his former payroll.

    Should Jovi have stopped the show or was a he a valiant soldier in the rock 'n' roll army by continuing to perform despite the obvious pain?
