According to Richie Sambora, he is “in talks” with Bon Jovi about rejoining the band.
The last time Sambora performed with the New Jersey group was at their 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. Sambora who left the group in 2013 recently confirmed:
“We’re talking about it. I don’t think there’s any reason not to at this point.
“Jon [Bon Jovi] was having a hard time with his voice a little bit there and he needed to take a little bit of a breather. I don’t know when Jon’s going to get his voice together and [when the reunion is] going to happen, but we have to get out there and do it for the fans, really. I feel a second obligation.”
When asked if he’d be writing new music with Jon Bon Jovi, Sambora answered:
“Oh, if he doesn’t let me, he’s crazy. I’m on a tear. People think that I just come up with the guitar parts and something like that. But songwriting is conceptual. You have to have a concept. It’s a story. And it can sometimes just come from looking out the window and observing and a lot of times it comes from your own life and for the most part of Bon Jovi my life was a lot more colourful than everybody else’s in the band!”
After leaving the reality TV program The Masked Singer UK, Sambora was interviewed. Sambora called his time away from Bon Jovi a “hiatus” in a statement he released after the performance, implying he planned to rejoin the group in the future. He also made a suggestion about new solo music, which he has since clarified. He stated:
“There’s a new album coming out, probably at the end of March or the beginning of April.
“It’s a rock record. Yeah, it’s a lot of fun and the songs are good, and I’m thrilled and I can’t wait to get out and play again.”
Sambora also reveals that Bob Rock, widely renowned for his work with Metallica, Aerosmith, Motley Crue, and other bands, produced the record. Moreover, he engineered and mixed the albums Slippery When Wet and New Jersey for Bon Jovi, as well as produced the 1992 album Keep The Faith.
