Jon Says Richie Sambora Welcome Back in Bon Jovi

(Classic Rock) Jon Bon Jovi says the door is open for Richie Sambora to rejoin the band any time he feels ready. He still won't discuss what led to the guitarist's non-appearance at the start of Bon Jovi's latest world tour leg but he insists it's not about money, and the pair haven't fallen out.

"We were all in Calgary. Richie was going to turn up on show day, but we went the night before because it's a long flight," Bon Jovi tells the Mirror.

"At 3.30pm on show day the manager said: 'Guess what?' He didn't even have to finish the sentence. Because we had been through it before we performed that night. We couldn't let down the fans."

He admits he hasn't set eyes on his bandmate since that moment. "I talked to him once once in six weeks and 18 shows. He's not fired, we didn't have a fight, it certainly isn't about money. He can return when he is ready to die every night, the way I walk on stage. No one's mad, no one's sad."

Bon Jovi is still reeling over his teenage daughter's overdose.
