Richie Sambora's Return to Bon Jovi
We, as Bon Jovi/Richie Sambora fans respectfully request that Richie Sambora be allowed to return to his rightful place, and given the respect he has earned, in Bon Jovi, provided he desires to return.
We request that any conflict, that may exist between Richie Sambora and Jon Bon Jovi, etc., that may be keeping Richie Sambora from rejoining "Bon Jovi" be resolved QUICKLY. We, as fans, would also like to receive timely reliable status updates on these resolution efforts through trusted sources; meaning Richie Sambora or Jon Bon Jovi Management.
We, in no way, mean to offend either party by this petition. We are in no way requesting any personal or private information regarding Richie Sambora's departure.
We, as loyal and loving fans, would like to remind both Richie Sambora and Jon Bon Jovi that life deals unpleasant hands and sometimes we have no choice but to deal with what life hands out. We would also like to remind both of these men that things can and will be said in the heat of anger/fear that cannot be taken back once spoken; but can certainly be understood and forgiven. (In other words, just talk it out).
We would like to do what little we can by signing this petition to reunite these two musical genuises who have not only been partners in one of the most successful rock bands of our time and written some of the most beautiful/memorable music and brought it into our lives; but have been "brothers" for the past 30 years. Please don't let that or let us slip through your fingers.
Last, but certainly not least, RICHIE SAMBORA CANNOT EVER BE REPLACED! HE CAN BE "SUBSTITUTED FOR" BUT NOT EVER REPLACED. While Bon Jovi continues to tour the globe without Richie, the difference in Richie Sambora, himself, and a "substitute" are deafeningly obvious. I can say this from personal experience. Please back us in reuniting the BON JOVI we all love...Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, David Bryan, and Tico Torres.
