Ritchie Sambora Questions Bon Jovi's Legitimacy Without Him

(Classic Rock) Richie Sambora has suggested Bon Jovi aren't the real deal without him - although he accepts frontman Jon Bon Jovi doesn't agree. The guitarist says his departure from the band was his own decision. And he admits he's found it frustrating being seen a less important member than the singer.

tells the Herald Sun: "It was an unpopular decision with the fans and the band, but sometimes a man's got to do for his family. It certainly didn't come down to money - it's something I needed to do for my family and myself."

Sambora says of his absence: "At the end of the day, if you're going to buy a can of Coke you want the real thing. I know Mick Jagger wouldn't tour without Keith Richards and call it the Rolling Stones. Jon just has a different mentality." more on this story
