He’ll give Hillary a good name.

Jon Bon Jovi is pitching a place for himself in Hillary Clinton‘s cabinet that would meld both politics and music.

“I’m gonna be the Secretary of Entertainment when Mrs. Clinton gets in,” the 54-year-old joked during his final Runaway Tours appearance at the B.B. King Blues Club and Grill in New York City.

Would he ever take on the big role of Commander in Chief, though? No way, Bon Jovi said: “There’d be so many skeletons that would fall out of my closet.”

Bon Jovi revealed that he’s known the official Democratic presidential nominee and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, for some time, sharing an anecdote about their time together at a horse race “many years ago.”

“He asked Dorothy and I to come with him and there was only three other people, and we flew down on this private plane,” Bon Jovi shared, explaining that the other passengers began badgering President Clinton with questions, including, “Whose job is cooler, your’s or Jon’s?”

The musician stepped in to answer, asserting that his job as a rock star was definitely superior because “I got to keep the airplane and the house.”

He laughed, adding, “I got him to agree that mine was the cooler position.”

Bon Jovi campaigned for Clinton in June, appearing at a rally for the former Secretary of State in New Jersey.

Last year, Bon Jovi was spotted celebrating Bill’s birthday at the Blue Parrot restaurant in East Hampton.
