In a recent interview on Absolute Radio, Bon Jovi addressed Sambora’s exit in 2013, clarifying that there was never a fight or falling out between them.

You have to understand that there was never a fight, or a falling out, he quit the band 11 years ago in the middle of the night. There was no animosity because being in a rock band, as glorious as it sounds, is hard work and he decided that being on the road with us wasn’t for him and he just didn’t show up anymore. That’s really what happened.

Despite the lack of contact, Bon Jovi harbors no ill will towards his longtime friend and collaborator. In fact, he revealed that Sambora even watched the first few episodes of the band’s new documentary, “Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story,” with him. “He came to see the doc though, I watched the first few episodes with him. It’s all good.”

Richie Sambora is Open to Reuniting

Sambora, on his part, has expressed a willingness to reunite with Bon Jovi once the frontman fully recovers from his recent vocal cord surgery. In an interview with “The Allison Hagendorf Show,” Sambora stated,

If he gets [his voice] back, I’ll go play. I got songs. I swear to God. It’s the honest-to-God truth… I told everybody that I would without a doubt go back. The world needs it… We need hope.

The guitarist, who left the band in 2013 to focus on personal issues and his family, believes that a reunion would be welcomed by fans. “The fans would love to see a reunion,” he said, adding, “It’s not finance, it has nothing to do with it. The world could use it.”

Jon Bon Jovi Gives Update On Vocal Surgery

As for his struggles, Bon Jovi worried he might not be able to perform after undergoing vocal surgery.

What you see in the series was shot a year, two years ago and I have a major surgery – much to my surprise – but the progress, and the process, have been continual since then. I’m far along and more than capable of signing on the record and singing on a daily basis now. It’s just getting back to tour shape but that’s up to God.

A Friendship Endures

Fans continue to be hopeful for a reunion of the rockstars. While the future remains uncertain, it’s clear that the bond between Bon Jovi and Sambora endures despite the challenges they’ve faced. As Bon Jovi himself stated, “Well, it’s been 11 years and I’m still waiting for the phone call, so who knows what the future holds.” Their willingness to reconnect and the absence of animosity suggest that a reunion, should it happen, would be a celebration of their lasting friendship and musical legacy.

Finding a perfect blend between heavy metal, rock, and pop, Bon Jovi not only shared their love for music with the world but the band sold over 120 million albums at the same time. Releasing a total of 15 studio albums, Bon Jovi is currently preparing to share their latest album, Forever, in June.
