A Look Back On One Of Rock’s Best Bromances
Richie Sambora and Jon Bon Jovi are finally on speaking terms following a 3 year silence after Sambora’s exit from Bon Jovi. Well…sort of; last week Richie took to social media to congratulate Bon Jovi on their new single “This House Is Not For Sale” and Jon was kind enough to respond a few hours later and while a brief exchange on Twitter isn’t going to rekindle the great 30 year bromance these two enjoyed as the principal songwriters behind Bon Jovi classics like “Wanted (Dead Or Alive)” and “Livin’ On A Prayer,” it’s got fans hoping that much like Axl Rose and Slash’s great reconciliation, Richie and Jon too will be able to put the past aside and move forward as best friends and bandmates one day.
Fun Fact: Shortly before joining Bon Jovi in 1983, Richie auditioned for KISS, to be Ace Frehley’s replacement.
Meanwhile, we’re left grieving the loss of a standout amongst the best time and wildly stimulating manly relationships rock’s brought to the table us with a video arrangement of lighter times in the lives of Richie Sambora and Jon Bon Jovi – when snickers were simple, the dramatic science was genuine, and these two carried on more like siblings than easygoing colleagues. Love them or scorn them, you can’t deny that the enchantment that happened when Richie and Jon were in a state of harmony with each other was a piece of what made Bon Jovi so much fun; remember the enchantment in the video!
