Bon Jovi Members Only Positive About Rock Hall Reunions

Bon Jovi members David Bryan and Tico Torres are not only pumped about their upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — but they’re looking forward to playing with the band’s original lineup. In a rare case of a Rock Hall ceremony avoiding any and all friction, Jon Bon Jovi let it be known immediately after the announcement that former members Richie Sambora and Alec John Such would absolutely be performing with the band. Back in 2013, Sambora went AWOL from Bon Jovi at the beginning of the band’s massive world tour in support of its then-recent chart-topping What About Now album. Alec John Such was booted from the band back in 1994.

Keyboardist David Bryan spoke about teaming up with his former bandmates again after the long wait for Bon Jovi’s Rock Hall induction: [“We’re gonna play a couple of songs and Alec and Richie are gonna join us and it’s going to be pretty cool. We’re looking forward to it. Nine years a little late, we’re in the club and it’s a wonderful club to be in from Elvis (Presley), and the Beatles, and the (Rolling) Stones, and it’s, its a great honor.”] SOUNDCUE (:14 OC: . . . a great honor)

  • Drummer Tico Torres talked about reconnecting with Alec John Such after hearing the news of the Rock Hall nod: [“Y’know, it’s hard to predict what you’re going to go through emotionally, but, y’know, speakin’ to Alec on the phone, it was just — it was wonderful. In reality, we took that journey together at certain times as a group, and I think it’s wonderful that we can re-enact that — and not only for us, but for the fans, y’know? So, I think when you get together with old friends, there’s always going to be some deep emotions within that.”] SOUNDCUE (:22 OC: . . . emotions within that)
  • Just released is Bon Jovi’s new edition of This House Is Not For Sale, which features two new songs — “When We Were Us” and “Walls.” Each online Bon Jovi concert ticket purchased will include a CD of the original edition of This House Is Not For Sale.
