Richie Sambora Fired Just Before Bon Jovi Goes Back on Tour

Posted by at 3:53 pm on August 21, 2013

Richie-SamboraGuitarist Richie Sambora IS NOT returning to tour with Bon Jovi this year — he’s been fired from the tour, per a RumorFix report.

Sources close to the band tell us it’s all about money. We are told just like any break-up, their differences are irreconcilable.

Richie, who has been a member of the band for 30 years, was making $2 million a month and 20 percent of the profits after each show. His replacement Philip ‘Phil X’ Xenidis is only making $10,000 a month.

But don’t think Richie is going to be just living on a prayer now– since he co-wrote most of the songs and since his likeness appears on merchandise, he continues to get royalty checks.

RumorFix’s source says, “Richie wants to go back on stage — that’s his first love. He’s really upset over the news.”
