Jon Bon Jovi Says Sambora “Absolutely” Still Bon Jovi’s Guitarist
Bon Jovi frontman Jon Bon Jovi still won’t divulge exactly what’s going on with guitarist Richie Sambora. But the singer tells “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in definitive terms that there’s been no falling out between them.
Sambora’s status in the band has been the source of questions, rumors, and speculation since he abruptly left Bon Jovi’s tour earlier this month. Neither Richie nor the band have offered any explanation, but have just said it’s due to “personal issues.” Bon Jovi has continued on with their tour, tapping guitarist Phil “Phil X” Xenidis to fill in for Sambora. Bon Jovi will wrap up the North American portion of their tour with a show in San Jose, California on Thursday, which will be streamed online via Evntlive.com.
