Sir Paul McCartney and Jon Bon Jovi have been friends for years, and to this day, Bon Jovi can hardly believe that he gets to casually hang out with a Beatle. The "Livin' on a Prayer" hitmaker sat down with AARP The Magazine on Thursday (May 23) to speak about the advantages of aging, his career, struggles he's had to endure, and his longtime friendship with McCartney.

The two often have picnics together and spend time at Bon Jovi's property in East Hampton, New York in the summertime.

“We do this all summer. I’m sitting there with a f---ing Beatle. He comes to my house often, I go to his beach house often, and our wives are very close.” The 62-year-old standout mentioned that he is extremely impressed with McCartney's work ethic, accompanied by an unmatched enthusiasm for his craft.

The storied Beatles co-founder is 81-years-old and shows no signs of slowing down just yet.

"'Oh, I’ve got new stuff!’ he tells me. At 81. Crazy," Bon Jovi recalled of a recent conversation he had with the "Love Me Do" legend. Influenced by McCartney, whom he considers a "close friend," and longtime mentor Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi revealed that he might also be releasing music for decades to come as there are still experiences to be had and stories to be told through his songs.

“I have a grander palette to write from. More life experience. I think that every record reflects somehow who I am at that time.”

In fact, the icon is slated to release his highly-anticipated 16th studio album, Forever, following 2020's 2020, on June 7th! Fan's can listen to everything Bon Jovi on iHeartRadio now to prepare for the upcoming record.
