While many continue lamenting the departure of Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi, the bandhas apparently quietly made a switch in their touring lineup. There is a report that they have hired Matt O’Ree as their rhythm guitarist. Phil X will remain the lead guitarist.
Jersey Shore radio station WRAT wrote on their Facebook page, “The Rat wants to send out a hearty congrats to our local guitar hero Matt O’Ree. Matt has been signed on as the new guitar player for Bon Jovi as they tour Europe and other far lands. Congrats Matt! You deserve it big time! Couldn’t have happened to a nicer or more deserving guy. It helps that Matt can play his ass off!”
