At least Richie is honest about his demons. There are other members of that band that need help that won't admit that they have a problem. Common knowledge when they were doing the pre tour work that a certain band member drank in every bar he could find,and was a mean drunk. Then we have Jon who admits that he needs a bottle of wine every night and he won't share.
I feel I know a lot about the band -- never heard about this "common knowledge" about a mean drunk. Since you aren't talking about Richie or Jon and Tico is a recovering alcoholic, then we are to assume you are talking about David? I don't buy that at all....

I told you already I don't think Phil fits into the BJ mold. He does not strike me as being someone that will become one of the brothers JMO. I could be wrong when Tico leaves maybe Jon will try to get Tommy to replace him. Why are you so interested in my statement about Phil and Tommy? Now who do you consider the "unstable alcoholic"?

Why bring up Phil partying on sunset strip and his association with Tommy Lee have to do with replacing/filling in for Richie? Are you making judgments about Phil?

So how do you know that this current situation is because Richie is a "unstable alcoholic"? I do not know Phil well enough to judge him. And you don't know anything about Richie's current either.

I think this person is talking about Tico. The fact that he was a "mean drunk" came out in the WWWB film. I think he is trying to imply that Tico is no longer in recovery.

how about just letting things be as they are now. I am sure Jon is figuring what to do, I mean who knows, maybe Jon and Richie have been secretly talking and maybe things are good, and Richie will be ready for the next leg. As u can see I am seeing the positive, not the negative, there has been too much of that around here. We need patient and we need to trust Jon to do whats right. He could have just easily cancelled this past leg of the tour, or even worse, cancel the entire tour, and we know many fans would not be happy at all, so lets give Jon credit for continuing the tour, with all of the drama. We will find out soon enough on what will happen.

Wow!! You have been on this forum for years and always enjoyed your postings and discussing topics with you but you have really become obsessed with your hatred.

Yes Richie went to rehab in 2011 and missed concerts.

Yes Richie has missed this leg for unknown reasons.

Yes he is tweeting about reviewing videos for a contest that has his named attached. It would be poor judgement on his part to let others look at the vids and decide on a winner without his involvement.

IMO he tweeted that message to get another one across...his life goes on and will without Bon Jovi. That tells me that Jon will not let him back...

Jon is inserting WLOLGO as a slap to fans...hahaha...I kicked him out and you don't know it yet. That is an egotistical thing to do and who does that sound like?? JON!!

I haven't checked here for a day or two and the fighting is just like a year or two ago when the trolls were rampant. I stayed away because it was like pure evil on this board.

Now peeps don't go all ballistic on me with the nasty pics as before...though they do make me laugh...so pre-school. They take too long to load for me so I don't waste my time on them.

You are a Jon lover and Richie hater and I am the opposite.

The bands albums have been horrible for years now. Whoever posted about Jon's voice is spot on. He cannot do it anymore. His voice is gone for the most part and what he is singing now is god awful!

I am really disappointed in the bands work for several years and no I do not waste my money on concerts. There is no place for my disabled daughter to sit and see the show with everyone standing up and I sure cannot go without her...she'd disown me very quickly. lol

This is not life or death Bon Jersey. It is just a band who has run its course and sadly may never get their "wow factor" back. That is sad.

I still do respect your opinion and you may be right but I prefer to think otherwise :)

No hatred, I really wish Richie the best. You left off he missed the Puerto Rico show in 2007(rehab), and the cancelling of his tour(sickness, cough, lol).

I won't jump on you for your opinion of"IMO he tweeted that message to get another one across...his life goes on and will without Bon Jovi. That tells me that Jon will not let him back...

That is your opinion and you have the right to state it. Some around here would say you have no knowledge but I respect what you are saying as you form opinion based on how you see things.

I made a statement! Damn is there something wrong with you?

The fact of the matter is you do not know any more about Richie's situation than any of the rest of us do. You have based all of your hateful remarks on things that have happened in the past. How long is Richie going to have to pay for his sins. He stated "personal reasons" for his absence why do you assume the worse.

Because history repeats itself, leopards don't change their spots and it is my right to have an opinion and assume the worse if I so choose too.

Yes you did make a statement, just asking you to explain it because it makes no sense with the reasoning you gave.

What does Phil partying "with the best of them" and spending time with his friend Tommy on Sunset have to do with Phil replacing/filling in for Richie? As the band can party "with the best of them" and are known to go to clubs/bars/strip clubs.

Honestly, for me I will be devastated. The magic will be gone and it won't be the same anymore. It might sound overboard and dramatic but Bon Jovi have been a part of my life for 27 years and it's been those 4 guys (Alec included when he was there) who have been there during every milestone of my life. I was a single highschooler when I heard of Bad Name, I'm now a married mother and no longer in high school!
He is behaving in ways now Richie which is upsetting me. I see the reaction from his fans and in a way, I think that he is why he can do this. His fans let him. He needs to get twitter messages that he is missed and wanted on that stage NOW. Not take as long as you need. He needs to know that he is letting everyone down. Not just the "Richie Girls" but all the fans. Just because I am not a Richie girl, doesn't mean I'm not a fan of his. I want him on that stage, I want him to know that people are upset, not that I am sending prayers to him. I have my own family to pray for, not an overpaid rock star!
If anyone doesn't think it was on purpose that he posted that twitter at the moment that the livestream was going to start, you are fooling yourself. Even if it wasn't on purprose but the tweet, he is having fun. That's a slap to his fans more for me, than to the band. Sorry you guys are missing me but I'm having fun. Sorry for the fans who went to the shows that I wasn't there, at least I'm having fun. People don't know whether to refund, go to the shows, is the band over, what is happening but Richie is having fun and screw up.
It will be hard for Richie to walk away too. I remember when the tour started and Jon wasn't moving around so much on stage (it seemed like he had a bad back) Richie was the one on fire. He was working that stage. They have a friendship between them. I know people like to think it's an act but it's not. It just might not be as close as before. They both have (all the guys do) other commitments now. When they started this band, they were young, single and had a fire in them. They had no other responsibilities. Now they are married, children, older and have outside interests, friendships change but they still are friends.
i AGREE!

Amen, this is exactly what I think. I also have a family, so I have other things to take care for, but the situation is not indifferent to me. BJ has been a part of my life for long. Richie is one of the reasons I go to the show - I have bought a diamond VIP package for a show in Europe...and Mr Sambora does not even bother about letting us know, actually, he's having fun...sad
