Jon Bon Jovi does not have a lot of regrets in his life, and that even includes Richie Sambora's dismissal from the group.
Sambora was part of Bon Jovi from its inception in 1983 until 2013, when he missed a tour with the band. This led to rumors that he had been fired, though Bon Jovi himself said he had quit.
Eventually, the two parties came to an understanding and settled their differences, though Sambora did not return to the band. Sambora would eventually come to say he'd been "unhappy with how Bon Jovi led the band for many years," while Bon Jovi would later claim Sambora’s “life choices” had “led him astray.”
Regardless of what actually happened, Bon Jovi was recently asked if he had any regrets in his life, and this included the Sambora saga.
Sambora has battled with substance abuse problems, which many believe is the reason he left the group. In a 2016 interview, however, he said he was taking time off to spend more time with his family. Sambora said then, "I really needed to take some time to be with my daughter. She needed me and I needed her, actually."Via Ultimate Classic Rock
