The World According To Richie Sambora
On whether he ever gets bored playing Bon Jovi's numerous hits… "No, no, no. Rock 'n' roll is a contact sport," he told Musicradar.com. "The rush is to take it in front of 70,000 people and have that happen. That's what makes it great. It's like having sex with your clothes on - it's the best thing you can possibly do.... It's the adjoining of the band and the audience that makes it still really good. And you know what? They're really good songs. Both Jon and I are pretty proud of them. We've discussed it, and we say, 'Hey, people wanna hear those songs? We're gonna give it to 'em.' That's it."
On the Bon Jovi songwriting method… "With Jon and I, the songwriting always starts with a conversation, how we're feeling and what's going on with our families or in the world," he told Star Bulletin. "It's been that way from day one - we sit in the same room with two guitars and a tape player. It's very old-school. Inspiration? There's a story on every street corner, my friends. All you have to do is open your eyes." more on this story
