Richie Sambora fired from Bon Jovi tour - report
Bon Jovi's lead guitarist Richie Sambora was fired from the band's tour, according to U.S. reports. The rocker reportedly fell out with Jon Bon Jovi and their bandmates over money, according to RumorFix.com. Sambora still collects songwriting royalties and profits from merchandise, but he won't be rejoining the band onstage after stepping down earlier this year (13). Neither the guitarist nor Bon Jovi have discussed the split or the reason for it, but Sambora is reportedly not taking the news well. A source says, "Richie wants to go back on stage - that's his first love. He's really upset over the news." The 54 year old has not performed with the band since the spring (13), citing a "personal matter," and in July (13), Sambora revealed he wouldn't be joining the band for their much-anticipated Hyde Park shows in London. He said, "I am not going to be onstage at Hyde Park sadly. It's just not happening right now. I truly want to be there and I feel very sad for the fans that I won't be performing. I love the fans, I love the band." He added, "Jon (Bon Jovi) and I have been tight for, like, 30 years, so all of this is very sad."
