Bon Jovi and Sambora’s Journey: A Tale of Time and Change


A captivating new docuseries is set to hit Hulu soon, delving into the musical magic and dynamics of the iconic band Bon Jovi. Titled “Thank You Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story,” this documentary aims to capture the essence of the band and their journey. It features exclusive interviews with band members, including the legendary frontman Jon Bon Jovi, as well as fellow musician Richie Sambora, the former guitarist of the band.

However, despite their joint involvement in the documentary, it turns out that Bon Jovi and Sambora have not communicated with each other for quite some time. In a recent interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, Bon Jovi shed some light on the reason behind this absence of contact.
When asked if he had discussed the docuseries with Sambora, Bon Jovi honestly replied, “Not a word.” He further explained that the responsibility of communicating with those involved in the project, including Sambora, rested with the documentary’s director, Gotham Chopra. Bon Jovi himself had no involvement in the interviews or production process. In fact, he hadn’t even seen the completed documentary, leaving him unaware of his former bandmate’s perspective.

Back in 2013, Sambora left Bon Jovi without much explanation. Publicly, he cited “personal issues” as the reason for his departure. This unfortunate timing meant that Sambora’s unplanned exit occurred just hours before the band’s scheduled performance in Calgary. Phil X, a talented musician, stepped in at the last minute to replace him for the rest of the tour, eventually becoming an official member of the band.

But what caused the rift between Bon Jovi and Sambora? Is there lingering resentment from Bon Jovi regarding Sambora’s abrupt departure? The answer, it seems, is quite different from what one might expect. According to Bon Jovi, their lack of contact is simply due to the fact that Sambora is no longer part of the band’s organization. He clarified, “Doesn’t mean that there’s not love forever, but it’s 11 years ago that he just didn’t show up anymore.”
