Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora haven’t spoken in 11 years

--

We are not in contact because he is not in the band. It doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be mad at each other, but it’s been 11 years since he just didn’t show up, Bon Jovi explained their strained relationship.

Richie Sambora left the band in April 2013, a few hours before they were supposed to play a concert in Calgary. Canadian musician Phil X, who also played with the group when Sambora went to rehab in 2011, joined Sambora for the rest of the tour.

There were problems with him going as a single father, and there were problems with wearing old clothes… Phil X had to show up once, and then he had to show up again, Bon Jovi explained.

Sambora openly talked about his decision to leave the band in 2020. It wasn’t a popular decision back in the day, but I really didn’t mind. I had to put in a lot of work in my personal life, he told People magazine at the time.

At that time, he prioritized families and his child Av (26), who he has with ex-wife Heather Locklear (62). The actress, known for example from the Melrose Place series, was still struggling with addiction to alcohol and drugs, and the musician was taking care of her daughter at the time.

When I look back and start listing the turn… Eighteen and a half months on the road, 52 countries. Sleep! It was really time to take a break. In 31 years, we have completed it trnctkrt, the guitarist added.

Hulu’s docu-series about the rock group will premiere on April 26 and will feature three stars.
