Richie Sambora Shares Real Reason He’s Done With Bon Jovi

It’s been eight years since Richie Sambora parted ways with Bon Jovi — and, apparently, his wounds from the breakup still haven’t healed.
The guitarist is calling out frontman Jon Bon Jovi, claiming his relationship with the band’s namesake wasn’t as harmonious as it appeared. “Part of my deal was to shut the f*** up,” Sambora says. “If I had a coffee place, the sign would say, ‘Have a hot steaming cup of shut the f*** up.’ That would be my coffee place. And you know what? Guess what? I did it. And it worked out because that’s what he needed for whatever reason. And I was working with him if he needed that kind of thing.”
Sambora’s comments come just one year after he addressed the possibility of his returning to the band, telling an interviewer, “It would have to be a special situation for me to go back, but I’m certainly not counting it out. I have no malice toward that band.”
