drama was once again stirred up with the latest reports claiming guitarist Richie Sambora
was officially fired from the current tour.According to RumorFix
, the axeman and singer Jon Bon Jovi
are clashing over money, with their differences now becoming irreconcilable. The firing itself will force Sambora to skip performing with the band at least until 2014.As the same source indicates, Richie was earning $2 million per month plus a 20 percent bonus from each of the Jovi shows. His temporary replacement Phil X
on the other hand, cashes in only $10,000 a month."Richie wants to go back on stage - that's his first love,"
the unnamed source said. "He's really upset over the news."
Sambora initially stopped performing with the band
in early April due to "personal issues."
Up until now, a series of various reports surfaced indicating an internal turmoil and a feud between the two musicians. But seeing that both remain fairly secluded about the entire matter, not much is known for sure.Do you think that Bon Jovi can continue as strong without Sambora's strumming contributions?
