You never know who might pop up at the Obama White House. Thursday's guest? Jon Bon Jovi. The rock star came to have lunch and share ideas with David Axelrod, a senior adviser to President Barack Obama. Bon Jovi and Axelrod discussed the president's efforts to encourage community service, an area of interest that the musician shares and promotes as well, the White House said.

Bon Jovi helped out Obama during the presidential campaign. Last September, Bon Jovi and his wife hosted more than 100 people for dinner on their mansion lawn in New Jersey to raise money for Obama and the Democratic National Committee. Obama was at the event and spoke briefly.
