Richie Sambora tells Billboard magazine that he is open to performing with Bon Jovi if they get inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. ”Sure. Of course, why not? There’s not a lot of malice there, you know. I mean, there’s just — it was just time for me to leave at that point. So yeah, of course.”
Bon Jovi is dominating this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame fan vote. As of last night, they were in first place with over 117,000 votes. Moody Blues was second followed by Dire Straits, The Cars and the Eurythmics.
Sambora says he would request they play ”Living on a Prayer”. “Livin’ on a Prayer” would have to be one. “Prayer” is a song that has lived through the ages. It’s one of those songs that means more today than when we wrote it. When you’re a songwriter and you hit that note when everybody relates to it, and it becomes a part of humanity, for God’s sake… And you know, “Wanted Dead or Alive,” obviously. With the Rock Hall, you have to almost sum up your life in three songs or so. That’s a really tough thing to do, something that the band would decide on.”
