Bon Jovi Premieres Another New Track, Richie Sambora Says “Nothing Happening At This Point”

Author: Jim Johnson

Bon Jovi has just released a lyric video for the tune “A Teardrop To The Sea,” as a teaser for the band’s new album, Burning Bridges, which will be released on August 21st. The album is being seen as a stop-gap release between major projects, and when the collection was first announced last month, the band issued a statement saying, in part, “Burning Bridges. . . is an album for fans and will accompany an upcoming international tour. The band is hard at work on their next album, which will see a full-scale release in 2016.

One of the songs, “Saturday Night Gave Me Sunday Morning” features a three-way co-credit with Jon Bon Jovi, producer John Shanks, and departed guitarist Richie Sambora. We recently caught up with Sambora and asked him if there’s anything going on between him and the Bon Jovi camp these days: “Not really, y’know? There’s just nothing happening at this point. Y’know, being in a band for 30 years, there’s a specific frame. I mean, the last tour was, like, 19-and-a-half months, 52 countries and 16 months before that. . . I mean, there are only two bands in the history of rock n’ roll that had back to back big tours back and forth; Grateful Dead, Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi. You miss a lot of life when you’re out there for so long. And my daughter needed me and I needed her and I didn’t have anything to contribute after 30 years at that particular point. I’m not saying it’s not gonna happen ever.”
