We’re starting to get details on what happened between Richie Sambora and Jon Bon Jovi.

The guitarist who eventually split from the band started having issues as early as 1985, he said in a recent interview.

Sambora wanted Bon Jovi to be more of a band, and felt it was more focused on making Jon Bon Jovi a star.

Sambora DID say he enjoyed the recent Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, and it was NOT awkward at all.

Don’t a lot of great rock bands have a prominent lead singer who gets more attention than other members (think Kieth & Mick)? And didn’t Richie know pretty much from the start that the band was built around Jon?
