Screw Richie and Jon .
Neither make any effort to respond to their fans tweets.
Not mention when Richie was on that Late night talk show . The contest he ran seemed to be rigged and winners were members of indepent fan clubs. All seemed to have met this man in person. When questioned the rules of the contests his fans reported me and got me bammmed from twitter.
I have spent at least a thousand dollars on Bon Jovi /Sambora merchandise. Sadly got treated like crap by a band I loved.
Sad and heartbroken fan

The only things Jon and Richie "owe" you are good songs and good performances. That is what you pay for - nothing else.

I love when fans attack. Why not allow a fellow fan a different opinion then yours ? Talk about mob mentality

No one is ganging up on you. You brought up the subject and people are letting you know what they think about it.

Sadly the last time I was in concert it was a very poor performance. The concert ticket was overpriced and performce was very poor. Perhaps if they made an attempt to reach out and communicate with thier unhappy fans . The band might learn grow and improve from the feedback they receive

I'm not the enemy. Just a fan like every else with limited funds.

Becca, two things:

1) Jon does not have a twitter account. Matthew answered that direct question only a few days ago. And if you think Jon himself is manning the @BonJovi account, you're dreaming. Not every celebrity HAS to use twitter. So far he has chosen not to.

I'm curious, what account have you been tweeting in the hope of getting a response from Jon himself?

2) I know what you mean about the trivia contest. That week did not make him look good. Richie may be talented as far as the music goes, but man did he put on full display why no one will ever think he is the brains behind the band. He only named the *correct* winner one day out of the five. I feel bad for the people who were actually the first ones with the right answer. Must have been a letdown for them.

Lisa,

Thank you for response.
Your tactful response has made this once very devoted yet angry fan, take a softer stance on the way I felt treated.

Jon and Richie should give a P.R. Job ...lol

Thank again

While I certainly agree with you Lisa that not every celebrity has to have a twitter account and Jon does not have one.

I have had many questions answered by Jon's brother Matt . I only he pays Matt a decent salary.

Richie however chose to have a twitter account and also run a trivia contest while performing on The Late show with Creig Fergson. While some might not consider him the sharpest knife in the drawer. He is responsible for the integrity of the contest. Let's face it he failed.

The daily winners of the contest seemed to be members of unofficial fan clubs. Each winner had many photos of themselves with Richie on thier twitter accounts.

When the question was asked weather the contest was for fan club members or everyone . Some people were banned from twitter.

Sadly Richie chose to remain silent.

I usually don't come here.
But this prompted me to.

First off..Richie had a PR company handling the Craig Ferguson contest. THEY screwed it up and he fired them. So the last day HE did it and got it right!

Secondly, My best friend won the first day! She has NEVER met Richie! It was not fixed! Richie didn't screw anyone out of anything! Once he found out it was wrong, he righted it!

I believe Richie did the best he could. He hasn't had to manage or operate a solo career or Bon Jovi, so he was treading on unfamiliar territory. Despite him saying he'd been the front man before. That was 30+ years ago. Give the man a small break!
Thanks!

This is completely untrue! Many won and didn't have a picture of them with Richie. Nikki Taylor never met Richie. Sigrid didn't have a pic of her with Richie. MANY!!! It was run for 4 days without Richie's knowledge of a problem. Once he knew...it was corrected and he chose the winner the last day!

What do you expect him to do answer your tweets? Or better yet answer all the tweets coming in hourly?

I believe everything your saying and this when Mr. Sambora should have put his twitter account to good use and issued an apology.

While Richie couldn't what happened and apology goes a long way.

Remember we are all fans here
