Richie Sambora

I WILL Return to Bon Jovi

11/24/2013 1:23 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

112413_richie_sambora_launch_v2Richie Sambora's hasty departure from Bon Jovi was only temporary ... so claims the guitar player himself, who tells us his shredding days with the band are hardly over.

The 54-year old rock legend was blowing out of L.A.X. when we asked about his rift with the band ... and Sambora told us to keep the faith.

We broke the story ... Sambora pulled out of Bon Jovi's current world tour for "personal issues" -- Richie sources say it was a fight over money, but others in the band claim Richie was hitting the bottle again.

Fun Fact:  Bon Jovi were the highest paid band in '13 ...  $79 mil ...more money than the tours of Kanye West, Coldplay and One Direction.

Just another old over the hill entertainer trying to hold on to every shred of his younger days. He still thinks he is in his 20s but the years of partying and alcohol have taken their toll on him, so we don't care anymore.

You guys do realise that all the nonsense about Jon and Richie fighting and Richie being in rehab was completely false? Richie himself said in an interview that he needed to spend more time with his daughter and that was the reason he left the tour.
