He appeared on 26 records and has recorded with Franke and the knockouts, a Jersey band with hit singles during the early 1980s. David Bryan had quit the band he and Bon Jovi founded in order to study medicine. While in college, he realized he wanted to pursue music full-time and has been accepted Juilliard School, New York music school. When Bon Jovi called his friend and said he was putting together a band and a record deal looked likely, Bryan followed Bon Jovi and gave up his studies.
Once the band started playing show and opening for local talent, they attract the attention of record executive Derek Shulman, who signed them to Mercury Records and who was part of the PolyGram company.
