Richie Sambora Opens Up About His Departure from Bon Jovi

In an interview with People magazine, Richie Sambora explained that he left Bon Jovi in 2013 to focus on his family and he has no regrets about walking away from the group.

Sambora explained that he left the group because his daughter, Ava, needed him around. Richie said, “We’ve been through a lot of things together. That was a time of psychological maintenance for the family. You know, I ain’t no angel. But I realized, Ava needed me to be around at that point in time. Family had to come first, and that’s what happened.”
