For a time, the relationship between Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora appeared fractured. Sambora abruptly left Bon Jovi over three years ago — a shock to the band’s leader — but any strife between the two parties appears to have been mended following Sambora’s well wishes after the Jersey-born band released it’s newest single.

The two longtime collaborators even spoke recently.

“We just talked a week ago. Everything is cool,” Sambora told in Australia. “They’re on a different trajectory, I’m on a different path. Plus I wanted to go out and sing.”

Of course, anything but disdain between former bandmates will be met with hope for a reunion, which Sambora also addressed.

“Never say never,” said Sambora. “There’s no malice. People propagate a story that there’s problems. No. You spend 30 something years in a band. That’s a long time. Not a lot of bands had that kind of longevity. We weren’t a band who took any breaks. The Rolling Stones or U2 will take three years off so they have a life, we didn’t really do that ever. The 30 years we put in probably felt like 50 years.”

Sambora is currently touring with guitarist Orianthi as RSO. The duo, who are also dating, will be touring Australia at the end of the month and may release music in the near future.
