Riche Sambora: 'Bon Jovi Needs to Stop Talking'
Richie Sambora has accused Jon Bon Jovi of putting obstacles in the way of his return to the band. Recently singer Jon suggested substance issues were behind his bandmate's latest absence, and admitted that "it's getting more and more difficult not to talk about Sambora." But now Sambora claims he's said too much already. He tells the Daily Mail (via Classic Rock): "My opinion is Jon wants to see if he can pull off stadiums by himself. He's making it very difficult for me to come back. "Enough with the trash-talking Jon needs to stop talking about me publicly. I am fine, working very hard on my fashion company, and this is a private matter. I don't have any major problems in my life right now." He adds that his thoughts are with followers of the band, saying: "I love my fans and I feel bad from them at the moment. They've paid money to see Bon Jovi, and, right now, they're not getting the whole deal." Sambora recently tweeted: "Hey there's too much to say right now so I won't say anything. Love you all. Thank u for the support. Just don't worry ... everything's good."
The guitarist dropped off the latest leg of Bon Jovi's world tour just hours before it was supposed to kick off in Calgary. He was replaced by Phil X, who also stood in during Sambora's visit to rehab in 2011.
