Up until very recently, Richie Sambora was a founding member of one of the great rock bands of all time, Bon Jovi.
The legendary guitarist is out here to have a good time at the Melbourne Cup, but we couldn’t help ask the rock star what happened with him and Bon Jovi.
Bon Jovi released a statement on their website last may, saying Richie Sambora won’t be appearing on the band’s current world tour, including shows in Australia.
“You know, I was out there 24/7 for 30 years and I realised i was missing a lot of my child’s life and I sacrificed a lot being out there and I just really needed to take a break and be a dad,” he said, on Triple M’s Grill Team.
“It’s not the end of the band and there’s no malice or anything like that, it;s just that’s where we’re at right now.” Listen to the full interview below.
