Jon Bon Jovi: 'Richie Sambora Can Come Back Anytime He Wants'
Jon Bon Jovi has been speaking to the Mirror about guitarist Richie Sambora's latest absence from the band. And while the singer is still tight lipped about the reasons for Sambora's departure, he insists that it has nothing to do with money or in-fighting: "We were all in Calgary. Richie was going to turn up on show day, but we went the night before because it's a long flight," says Bon Jovi (via Classic Rock). "At 3.30pm on show day the manager said: 'Guess what?' He didn't even have to finish the sentence. Because we had been through it before we performed that night. We couldn't let down the fans. "I talked to him once once in six weeks and 18 shows. He's not fired, we didn't have a fight, it certainly isn't about money. He can return when he is ready to die every night, the way I walk on stage. No one's mad, no one's sad." Bon Jovi recently released a statement on their website explaining that Sambora's absence would extend to their scheduled South African and European shows. Stand-in guitarist Phil X will take Sambora's place for these gigs.
