Former Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora recently revealed that he had ‘nothing to do’ with the band’s latest documentary.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Sambora shared his thoughts about ‘Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story.’ He stated:

“I had nothing to do with it really, except I work there but it wasn’t my perspective. It was one person’s perspective.”

Sambora then expressed how he would have preferred to celebrate the band’s 40th anniversary:

“To me, the celebration of 40 years would have been how the songs affected the whole world because we did a pretty good job after doing it. We worked very hard. And the songs really got to people and communicated all over the world.”

Sambora’s Perspective Differs

The former Bon Jovi guitarist made his first public appearance on May 11 since the docuseries aired. He headlined the 11th Annual Unbridled Eve Kentucky Derby Gala at The Galt House Hotel. After his performance, Sambora spoke to People magazine about the series, saying it focused more on Jon Bon Jovi’s story than his own.

Additionally, Sambora’s representative commented on the documentary, noting that Sambora was unhappy with how he was portrayed and how his departure from the band was depicted.
