  RICHIE SAMBORA QUIT BON JOVI TOUR BECAUSE YEARS-OLD TENSIONS FINALLY ERUPTED
4th April 2013

Guitarist Richie Sambora dramatically left the Bon Jovi tour on Tuesday in Canada and celebrity gossip site TMZ are claiming that "it's all about a war that's exploded between Jon and Richie".

Fans speculated on the band's official forum that his departure may possibly be due to his well publicised alcohol and subtance issues. Sambora has already done three stints in rehab facilities but apparently it is nothing at all to do with substance abuse.

Sources directly connected to Bon Jovi told TMZ: "Tensions between Jon and Richie have been running high for years and it's finally erupted. It's a classic Jagger/Richards blowup."

TMZ sources also say that part of the problem is that Jon constantly belittles Richie and that they're fighting over money.

Yesterday (Wednesday) Richie posted on the Bon Jovi website that he was pulling out because of "personal issues."

During the Calgary concert, Jon told the crowd: "I had two choices: pack up and go home or give you everything I got... Richie Sambora won't be performing for a while. If there's ever a night I need you, it's tonight, Calgary!"

TMZ sources have also said that Sambora's camp is hopeful the two sides can work things out before April 19, when Bon Jovi is set to play in L.A., Richie's hometown.




NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
