Not saying he isn't talented, well you guys know what I mean.
He definately won't be playing venue anywhere near the size Bon Jovi will be. It's up to him wether he can accept that. Play huge venues to thousands of people but be unhappy or play smaller venues to people who want to see YOU? It's a decision that would be really hard for someone who's been on top for as long as Richie has to make.
