Bon Jovi and Kissinger’s Unholy Alliance

One of you asked me:

If work belongs to Kissinger and Bon Jovi, do I say “Kissinger and Bon Jovi’s work,” or “Kissinger’s and Bon Jovi’s work?” The former seems right, but why?

The former is right if Kissinger and Bon Jovi shared the work. (I wonder what kind of work they shared, but that is another blog post altogether.)

However, if you are talking about their different projects, you would say “Kissinger’s and Bon Jovi’s careers went in radically different directions.”

What’s your favorite unholy alliance?
