Since Richie Sambora’s departure from the rock band Bon Jovi during the “Because We Can" Tour, the former member has been civil with his former band mates but now he is speaking out and the drama is starting to heat up again.
Sambora said, ““At the end of the day, if you’re going to buy a can of Coke, you want the real thing. Jon (Bon Jovi) just has a different mentality. I know Mick Jagger wouldn’t tour without Keith Richards and call it the Rolling Stones.”
According to Asbury Park Press, at the time of his departure from the band, his reasoning was so that he could spend more time with his daughter, Ava. Presently, he has been playing shows with guitarist Orianthi.
Sambora has co-wrote many of the greatest hit songs such as “Livin’ On A Prayer” and “Wanted Dead Or Alive,” although as earlier reported by NewJersey.com, Sambora has not received the proper credit or attribution for the songs.
In the past, the band has gotten back together and Sambora is still not saying that it will not happen again, but for now he said, “"There will have to be a lot of communication, a lot of talking."
