drama might be finally cooling down as axeman Richie Sambora
recently hinted at returning to the ranks of New Jersey rockers.
During a chat with the Sun
, Sambora called the entire matter "a family drama"
that "will be resolved,"
expressing his hopes for a September return.
"I'll be in Paris with my daughter Ava while the band rocks the UK,"
the guitarist said. "But let's see what happens at the end of summer. September's looking good. So, maybe September."
The axeman also confirmed that he will not be performing with the group during the upcoming Hyde Park show in London, confessing he is feeling sad for skipping such a major concert.
"I am not going to be on stage at Hyde Park sadly,"
he said. "It's just not happening right now. I truly want to be there and I feel very sad for the fans that I won't be performing."
Sambora continued, "I love the fans, I love the band. Jon and I have been tight for like thirty years, so all of this is very sad and it affects so many people around us."
According to the previous reports, the guitarist was furious at singer Jon Bon Jovi for basically calling him a replaceable member
of the group. As initially reported, Sambora left the band in early April due to "personal issues."
