A band called The Contagious was picked to open for BON JOVI in Dallas last Monday but there was one problem. The members are sophomores in HIGH SCHOOL and they had classes that day.
So, JON BON JOVI wrote them a permission slip to get them the day off. It said, quote, "To whom it may concern, please excuse the members of The Contagious for being absent from school . . ."They were busy being my opening act and kicking butt." Here's the note Jon wrote and a pic of Jon with The Contagious.
