It’s a Friday night video shoot at the storied Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens, and cavernous Soundstage E is rockin’.

Inside a tunnel of billowing white silk and flashing blue lights, Jon Bon Jovi lets loose on “Superman Tonight,” the Jersey boy’s paean to everyday heroes.

Off to the side, Bon Jovi’s longtime lead guitarist, Richie Sambora, watches on a monitor with two extras from Philadelphia. Back in the day, he tells the women, shoots like this were an excuse for blow-your-mind bacchanalia. “It was a lot more fun then,” he laments.

“But Richie, think of how far you’ve come,” one offers cheerily. “It’s Friday night and here you are, hanging out with a nun.”

Sambora answers Sister Mary Scullion with a howl.
