“I feel a bunch of emotions. The road is not always rainbows and unicorns,” Bon Jovi says at the start of a promotional clip for his interview.

Jon Bon Jovi’s ABC interview arrives shortly after the TV and streaming premiere of Thank You Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story, a new four-episode docuseries about the band.

A trailer for the upcoming docuseries featuring band members, including Sambora, arrived on YouTube.

The singer shared his thoughts with other media outlets about various topics ahead of the Strahan ABC special and Hulu docuseries.

That included talking about his 34-year marriage to high school sweetheart Dorothea Hurley.

“These are all the wonderful clichés of rock stardom,” he confessed to The Independent, admitting, “It’s about never lying about having been a saint but not being a fool enough to f*** up the home life, either.”

Bon Jovi and Hurley married at the Graceland Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1981. He admitted that his wife’s patience and tolerance toward his infidelity helped their marriage last this long.

In Bon Jovi’s 1993 song Bed of Roses, the singer expressed regret over multiple affairs.

The couple has four kids: sons Jesse, 29, Jake, 21, and Romeo, 20, and daughter Stephanie, 30. Jake has made headlines for his relationship and engagement to Stranger Things actor Millie Bobby Brown.

Thank You Goodnight premieres Friday, April 26 on Hulu.
