In the late 80s, there was no bigger rockstar in the world than Jon Bon Jovi. Do you know the story of what he did for the students of SoBo High School in 1987?

Here's what we do know: Bon Jovi played Rockford's Metro Centre on June 5, 1987 with special guests, Cinderella. What went on that day has been told a few different ways, but all versions of the story have Jon Bon Jovi showing up at South Beloit High School's graduation ceremony. Why was he there? Did he speak to the graduating class? Who's jersey is he wearing? Where is the football player today?

So many questions we have. Do you know this story? Please share what you know.
