IF it is true that was said in that article 2 days ago,that Jon said to Richie that he always thought it would be a daughter of Richie's who would OD and not a daugter of his... Well,that is pretty bad. I am a big Jon fan(although I like Richie too),but then I would be dissapointed in Jon. Don't think I can believe that story.
I agree with you. Who in their right mind would say that!!

Really Paula he already has more money than he knows what to do with. I cannot believe that you fault the man for enjoying a morning out with his daughter. Richie is enjoying his life, he is going out a lot. Why should he stay home and wait for Jon to say ok.
every statement that jon has made has included the words that richie is welcome to come back anytime blah blah blah so why do you think richie is waiting on an OK from jon. if its about money then richie should have fought that battle before the tour started if its about rehab then then jon aint saying OK be high and drunk all the time. richie left the band a couple of hours before he was suppose to be there instead of facing his responsibilitys. I know he wasnt expecting Phil X to be available. I wish I could have a fly on the wall for that call. hey phil its jon, are you busy? richie is being a douche again....

Someone that is intelligent!!
I think he would have had a lot more of open support from the band if it was something like this, they may not have said what it was but the comments that have been made would not have been.

I was just looking back through Richie's tweets for contest info and notice these two. Does make me wonder why he'd ask a question about this particular song seemingly out of the blue.

March 29..On vacation with family in Hawaii.

Hey did anybody listen to Forgiveness St today?

Forgiveness Street lyrics from lyrster.com

Another moment of a lost conversation
A chance to understand, then passing us by
Careless words and a wounded situation
In our silence it's a struggle to survive
Please meet me on the other side
Don't be afraid to cross

CHORUS:
On the corner of compassion,
shattered streetlight in the dark
When faith is lost and wandering
in your lover's heart
Drops of sidewalk desperation,
collected at your feet
An unlocked house is waiting,
at the end of Forgiveness Street

Faded polaroids of my regrets,
and my memories I never thought would last
In a box I kept them underneath my bed,
but the pain was running deeper than the past
It was supposed to stay unopened
That's where I got hurt

CHORUS:
On the corner of compassion,
shattered streetlight in the dark
When faith is lost and wandering
in your lover's heart
Drops of sidewalk desperation,
collected at your feet
An unlocked house is waiting,
at the end of Forgiveness Street

I found my way home to that
house of forgiveness street
Tired of carrying the pain
from dragging that cross
Someone stole all the signs
that led to forgiveness street
I'm broken inside, so here I am,
still standing all alone

CHORUS:
On the corner of compassion,
shattered streetlight in the dark
When faith is lost and wandering
in your lover's heart
Drops of sidewalk desperation,
collected at your feet
An unlocked house is waiting,
at the end of Forgiveness Street

About a month or so when Jon came out on Ellen DeGeneres he told his fans they love him, miss him and he is still very much in the band. Only Richie knows what is really bothering him and found it easy to blame Jon for his absence. Jon and Richie are definitely awesome when they play together. It would be ashamed to see two great performers ruin their friendship over whatever is bothering Richie. Jon is and always will be a great performer.The good thing is he still has Tico and David to support him. Yes, Richie is an awesome performer as a guitarist. He will never perform as a singer like Jon, if that is what he is looking to become. 30 years together, why a change of heart now. Earlier interviews, Richie seemed and looked very excited about this tour. I just hope this all comes to and end soon and he join the band on the remaining tour. Richie should be with his brothers when they tour in their hometown where they are loved and admired by their fans.

For the record, I love the song "Forgiveness Street": The lyrics, the melody, the way Richie's voice sounds singing it. It's haunting and vulnerable. I think it's too bad he didn't include it on 'Aftermath' for whatever reason, but there's a video he posted on his YouTube page of himself working on the song with the violinist Ann Marie Coulhun, so maybe it will see the light of day yet.

Some have speculated the song is about Heather, but I have a feeling it might just be referencing Richie's friendship with Jon. It's an incredibly bittersweet song, and the thing that made me think "Jon" was his reference to the "faded Polaroids". By the time Richie and Heather got together in the 1990s, did anyone even use Polarids anymore? But they would have been more common in the early/mid-1980s, potentially.

IIRC Forgiveness Street was a song on the "leaked" record that didn't make the final cut on the official CD. I can't remember reading anything where Richie commented about the song during any of the press he did, either meaning or who it didn't make the cut. Obviously he was thinking about it on the day he posted that tweet though which was the last day of his vacation.

Apparently when JBJ's daughter over-dosed, he said to Sambora he would have expected that of Richie's daughter and not his own.
If this is true then i don't blame Sambora for leaving. This was from a close source of Sambora's.
JBJ thinks HE is the band and HE is the only member. Every time he talks to the crowd its always 'I' or 'Me' and never 'Us'

In this situation darlin' it's become painfully obvious that the only things you can believe either Jon or Richie said are the things either coming out of Jons mouth on video or off of Richies personal twitter acct.Everything else is adding up to just so much B.S.

No doubt in the world that Jon said something to Richie about his daughter. Jon is known for being that much of an a hole around the jersey shore and has put both feet in his own mouth many times. Theres something wrong with this man. He was more worried with publicity than his daughter. Although the new law in jersey is a good one, jon must have embarassed his duaghter promoting it in her name. Tjen brags at the same time about his son at notre dame. Sorry steph your not daddys favorite anymore. Jon totally would say something that low to richie. Jon is well known for it. He picks on kids all the time. What a jerk. A grown man picking ln bieber. Jon is in his 50s and justins 19. Jon get a grip. You dont control anyone! Go home and take care of your daugjter now that you have destroyed her as well. God he is such a jerk! Good for you richie. You have proven to be the better dad! So proud of you!

Jon is the most disgusting being on the face of the earth right now for that comment about someones daughter. Ava is a beautiful child. Jon is well known for trying to ruin peoples lives. Picking on little kids. What a creep.

More confirmation that you have the IQ of a shoe - not being able to see the many nuances of a legal matter. It must suck to have a head made out of cement. You should crack it open and let your brain breathe. I think it's atrophying.
