  1. There is a review of the show that he has re tweeted.
    The review rates the show highly, but it also states of Richie comments during the show in reference to JBJ

    " I know which songs are his and I know which songs are mine" as lead in to These Days"

    "When he coughs up more dough, I will probably go back"

  2. That's just so Fuckin rude. First he says no rift then says this shit! Go to hell Sambora! You're nothing but a two faced liar! I hope the guys never let you back. I suspect he better shut his yap or he's gonna have some serious shit to deal with. Jon's only gonna be pushed so far before he hits back, likely with lawyers. The only one to blame for him not being with Bon Jovi is him!

  3. Never thought Richie is like that as a person. I think something happened to him and changed his attitude. To attack an old friend like that is really bad. I hope it is just a show thing. But it is becoming ugly. Jon never attacked richie, even when he left the tour without explanation.

  4. Ego is what happened. Can't believe he's acting like this. I agree Peter, attacking an old friend is unacceptable. Sadly I think this is just Richie's way of drumming up publicity for himself. Sad that the only way he can do that is by trash talking a guy that helped him be famous & rich. Talk about a short, convenient memory RS has. Can't believe anything that comes out of his mouth anymore. I don't think he'll be back with Bon Jovi again. Can't imagine Jon will have him back now. Oh well, onward & upward for Bon Jovi & bring back Phil X. Adios Rich.

  5. This review by Paul McBride is the article that the first commenter is referring to.

    In this video of These Days, Richie does say "I know which songs are mine and I know which ones are his", which is a bit of a pot shot, but I didn't hear anything about coughing up more dough. Did anyone at the concert hear if it was said, and whether or not it was tongue in cheek?

  6. well, maybe he isn't allowed to play other Jovi songs who has Jon as writer in it? We just don't know. Thanks for posting the concert updates :)

  7. A personal message to Richie Sambora and, while I'm at it, Brian May. I'm very pissed off with both of you at the moment. I think your current conduct is disgraceful, disgusting and despicable. I wish I never heard of you. I wish you never entered my life. I wish I had a time machine so I can go back and tell myself, "these gentlemen are fucking scum, and their fan base is awful, so you don't want to mix with horrible, nasty gentlemen such as these." Don't have heroes, ladies and gentlemen, because they always let you down. How about a boxing match? I'll see you gentlemen go down. I thought Ronnie James Dio and Axl Rose were the most horrible, vile, disgraceful, disgusting and despicable pieces of shit in the business. No, it's Brian May and Richie Sambora instead. FUCK YOU arseholes!!

  8. In addition to my previous comment, I also think these three sum this up pefectly.


Thanks for giving me your time.
