Seacrest interviews Sambora during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about how Hurricane Sandy affected him.
Actually, my mother’s house was pretty decimated. She lives on a river in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, right where that hurricane had hit the coast. We had a couple feet of water in the living room and in the bottom floor of the whole house. So, mom will be living out with me here in California for a little while.
Sambora performs Every Road Leads Home To You on Good Morning America from his album Aftermath of the Lowdown.
The band releases, We Weren’t Born To Follow, from the album, The Circle. Sambora:
When I recorded the solo to that song, I played a very melodic, kind of Beatles-esque break. That was the mood I was in. As soon as the song got leaked to radio, people went crazy, sending e-mails and Twittering and everything: ‘We love the song, but what’s with that solo? We want a rippin’, burnin’ Richie Sambora solo. So I said to Jon, ‘Hey, do you want me to change it? We got time. And John was like, ‘Sure. Go lay down another solo and we’ll drop it in the song on the album.’ So that’s what I did.
Sambora is interviewed by Hall on The Arsenio Hall Show. They talk about the gospel undertones on his music, and his relationship with Bon Jovi.
We’re full on. I mean we went through some problems. I mean every family has them.
The band releases, You Give Love A Bad Name, from, Slippery When Wet. Bon Jovi, Sambora and Child collaborate in the writing of the lyrics. Child:
The very first day we got together we wrote You Give Love a Bad Name. Then a few weeks later we wrote Livin’ On A Prayer. It was a magical collaboration and there was instant chemistry between us.
