Get off the VF southbound LVR, hang a right, MD's on the right, parking lot, 7/14/13 11.43 A.M..... right by the CHP barracks no less! Had a driver. Just a mess,big double chin. Meal brought out.$, now JD. X is the new guitarist for good, nobody cares about RS, the numbers for the next swing are 75% sold with easy 90% sold by crunchtime. Game-set-match. 3 guys on the next CD cover will look funny.

Maybe X will join them on the cover!

I doubt it! I mean if any body would deserve to be on the cover it would be Hugh. Jon employs them all David and Tico are the upper level employees. Phil will join Hugh and mushroom Bobby as the minimum wage employees.

You never know.

Wonder how much Richie will bring in on his solo tour and where he will tour?

You seem to know all the inside info. You can probably answer that better than me. Because I have not heard him mention a tour lately.

I was away a few days when the Aftermath tour was announced, by the time I realised that there was one date in the UK in October last year it was already sold out. It cost me 200 for tickets via Getmein.
And I dont begrudge a penny, it was an amazing show - truely fab.
I would love to see him play live again solo. I have been to big show with Jovi, but to see someone of his calibre up close and personal playing was f**king amazing. I sang and danced myself to the ground.
I would love to see Jon play solo like that too.
I dont understand the taking sides thing thats going on, I dont think Jons the devil and Richies a saint (although Richie is my fave). I think they are all great.

I don't get the taking side thing either.

Great post.

It's not about taking sides. That's just how those who are defending Richie have tried to frame the argument. If you think Richie has shown himself to be disrespectful, ungrateful, unappreciative, unreliable, etc then you must be a Jon girl. You must worship Jon and hate Richie and revel in seeing Richie screw up. Yeah, that's it.

It couldn't possibly be that some of us just simply recognize that it's not OK to make a commitment and then bail on it with no explanation. No, that can't be it.

The bottom line is that Jon made a commitment and he has honored it. So has everyone else in the band, and the crew as well. If appreciating that they have all shown up where they were expected to be is 'taking Jon's side' then so be it.

All you have to do is look at almost any thread & it's the same thing.

Richie can be replaced, he's not all that on the guitar, he's immature, he's an idiot, he's an alcoholic, he's a drug addict, he can't sing, & so forth.

I'm not going to look but I bet before on this board Richie played a mean guitar, he & Jon wrote the best songs ever, & boy can that guy sing!

I guess until this is resolved one way or the other it will continue to be this way on here. I have been told many old posters left just because of all the angry posts.

But yea I agree with the previous

poster. There are "sides" on here. That is absolutely true.

He'd have beeen back already and out of rehab if he were boozing, he wants more money due to his failed '12/'13 exploits. Yes he looks like hell if reports are correct. Yes, Hughie/X get wage, no merchandising and the other two waaaay down what people think. Yes, rumour has it he's going to be totally bought out by Jon, he runs the corporation....and it is one, they all are employees including Jon.
