Well there goes any chance of Bon Jovi ever making a rock album again. Word is Richie Sambora has been officially fired.
Mind you, if they keep Phil X as a permanent replacement, he's a pretty heavy guy. He's largely responsible for the sound of Alice Cooper's Brutal Planet album, not that I expect Bon Jovi to make anything that heavy, but he might at least steer them back towards actual rock music.
9/4 Scott Weiland
