I know the reporters are doing their job but I wish they would stop asking. They can't say anything. I wish Richie would man up and say what is wrong!!

I think the question will always come up if Richie is Not Doing an official Statement...

I still keep going back to Matt's tweet that the situation is 'really simple actually'. If it's so simple then why have they let it drag out iike this?

I don't get it too, if it is that simple so whats going on, that Richie cannot back to tour??... I'm start to thinking that Richie just need some separation from band...Like Jon said: "if Richie wants back, he always welcomed"... It looks like is not that Richie CANNOT back to tour, he just don't want to right now. And Jon is just waiting and gives him time to get finnal decision...

Jon wearing sunglasses again inside.

Big sign that he wants to hide his true thoughts and feelings. Easier to hide behind them.

Rather be rude than show a sign of the real Jon.......

Haha! Talk about way over thinking!!! He always wears sunglasses to press conferences because of the flashes. Haha "to hide his true thoughts?" Seriously?!!!!! Enough already!

most "celebs" do the sunglasses bit ... I believe the above analogy is correct on both counts. I am more inclined to lean a bit further on the hiding behind the shades theory...this is why they wear them, to avoid eye contact. Yes I am sure those bulbs are quite bright as well, but really a well lit room no doubt a ballroom in some hotel. They could not have been that bright. I am few years older than Jonny and a few younger than Tico, and for me to wear sunglasses inside is like blindfolding me. Notice, Tico does not have on sunglasses. Sunglasses allows one to avoid eye contact. Can't see the eye rolling, etc. while flashing those pearly whites. He may not be hiding anything,--- it's the lack of connection which bothers me more. A person's eyes tell a lot, isn't there a saying "the eyes are the gateway to your soul". Tico don't need to hide. JMO.

It doesn't seem like there is a "they" in this lisa, just a "he", meaning Richie. Both the leaving and the returning seem to be his choice, not anyone elses. So until he decides he's going to talk about it or go back on tour.......... everyone gets left hanging. Don't get me wrong, I would love for all to be well with Richie and for him to be back on the road with the band, and I'm sure he has his reasons for doing what he is, but fans frustration needs to be firmly planted on Richies doorstep and no one elses.

A lot of RNR stars wear sunglasses inside. It seems to be a "thing" with them.

He was wearing sunglasses even before he was Jon Bon Jovi and still just plain old John Bongiovi

I remember a interviewer asking him what advise would he give his kids and Jon said something about coffee, minivan and to never leave the house without sunglasses.
Can't remember where I read it but it made me laugh.

I remember that one. He was in England doing a tv interview. Not sure if I can find it.

Hi everyone! How hard is to understand that Richie is now semi-retired?! He is enjoying life..I do agree he should just tell the fans but that is his choice how he handles his personal life.

Mark my words, I know I am right. Can't tell you details but this has been on his mind for at least a year. If Richie comes out and says something else, I will be the first to say I was misinformed.

Have a great weekend!

Jon has the same shade of blue eyes I have and the shades help keep the sun and pollen out. Nice interview, jbj.

Correct. he has an eye condition that unfortunately is getting worse. His right eye swells up from if the flash goes off. So sad.
