David Bryan, Bon Jovi keyboardist and a Tony Award-winning composer, has tested positive for the coronavirus, the rocker announced.
“I just got my results back today and tested positive for corona virus,” Bryan wrote in an Instagram post Saturday afternoon. “I’ve been sick for a week and feeling better each day. Please don’t be afraid!!! It’s the flu not the plague. I’ve have been quarantined for a week and will for another week. And when I feel better I’ll get tested again to make sure I’m free of this nasty virus. Please help out each other. This will be over soon … with the help of every American!!” Matthew Bongiovi, brother of Bon Jovi frontman Jon Bon Jovi, encouraged Bryan to “Feel better brother” in the comments of his post. Bryan’s daughter Gabby wrote, “Classic Bryan luck!!!! We’ll be chugging tequila again soon!”
Bryan and creative partner Joe DiPietro recently staged the musical “Diana” on Broadway at the Longacre Theatre. The play, about the late Princess Diana, was in previews before it was postponed on March 12.
Bon Jovi is scheduled to release the new album, “2020,” on May 15. Meanwhile, Cassie Randolph shared updates over the weekend on her boyfriend, “Bachelor” star Colton Underwood, who revealed Friday that he also tested positive for coronavirus. The couple has been in quarantine with her family at her parents’ home in California.
“We’re trying to one, stay positive, two, take a lot of vitamins, and get a lot of sleep,” she told fans in an Instagram Story, urging everyone to “please, please” stay at home because “it’s the only thing we can do.” She noted that Underwood, 28, who has been sequestered on the third floor of the house, didn’t know where he contracted the virus. “I disinfect myself every time I leave,” she said, and shared video shot from the deck of the reality star getting some fresh air by himself on the roof.
