During a recent interview with Daily Mail, Richie Sambora was asked about the possibility of him returning to Bon Jovi someday. The guitarist didn’t rule out the idea, but did say that “it would have to be a special situation.”
Sambora said the following:
“It would have to be a special situation for me to go back, but I’m certainly not counting it out. I have no malice toward that band.”
Jon Bon Jovi also addressed Sambora’s absent from the group during a separate interview with Rock Antenne:
“There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t wish that Richie had his life together and was still in the band. And yet, in a weird way, it’s because of his inability to get it together anymore that we went on and wrote ‘This House Is Not For Sale’.”
Sambora also discussed those comments in the Daily Mail interview:
“When people say I don’t have my life together — are you kidding me? I’m the happiest dude on the block.”
He also added the following about his exit from the band:
“Obviously it hurts and you know, breaking up is hard to do. I was in a situation and it was not easy to make that decision to leave the band and the fans. I was in a dire situation with my family and I had to make a tough decision and I did and I’m sure people weren’t happy about it.”
Bon Jovi has teamed up with Jennifer Nettles for a new country version of “Do What You Can.” You can find a video for that below:
Jon Bon Jovi commented:
“In 2005, Jennifer helped Bon Jovi take ‘Who Says You Can’t Go Home’ to No. 1 on the country charts. It was her powerful and emotion-filled voice that I hope will carry us back onto the country airwaves again to share this uplifting message of unity.”
“Being invited to sing with Bon Jovi back in 2005 on ‘Who Says You Can’t Go Home’ was a real blessing as an artist and in my career. I could not be happier to continue that amazing musical story on our new duet ‘Do What You Can’. (Or should I say ‘Duet What You Can’)”
As previously reported, Bon Jovi’s new album “2020” will be released on October 2.
Bon Jovi has premiered a new video for his new song “Do What You Can.” This track is from the frontman’s new album “2020,” which will be released on October 2. He said the following about the clip:
“Shooting a video on nearly empty streets of Manhattan amid a global crisis really told the story of ‘Do What You Can’ from the place where I lived it. And I know those empty streets look similar to so many parts of America battling this pandemic. But the story of everyday heroes showing amazing courage was inspiring to see and the video, much like the song, has a great deal of hope in it too.”
Bon Jovi has premiered a lyric video for his new song “Do What You Can.” This track is from the frontman’s new album “2020,” which will be released on October 2.

Jon Bon Jovi commented:
“I was moved to write ‘American Reckoning’ as a witness to history. I believe the greatest gift of an artist is the ability to use their voice to speak to issues that move us.”
