(Classic Rock) Bon Jovi keyboard player David Bryan says the departure of guitarist Richie Sambora has given the band "new life." The band release their first full studio album since Sambora's departure - This House Is Not For Sale - on November 4. And Bryan insists the addition of Phil X, as well as their continued collaboration with producer and guitarist John Shanks, has kept the spark alive in the studio.

Bryan tells Antihero: "It's a different thing, but there's new life, and I think when you have new people, you have new energy. And, of course, the creative process, the way we've worked together, is working with each other in the room. And if everybody's on the same page, it makes beautiful music.

"Of course we had some wonderful years with Richie, but if he wants to move on in his direction, it's one of those things that you can't avoid. And we carry on, because the premise of this record is the roots and the fact that we're still together and strong and love playing music together." Read more here.
