Richie Sambora appears to be slamming former bandmate Jon Bon Jovi in his new song 'Come Back As Me', where he alludes to the issues they had when he dropped out the band's tour

Richie Sambora has a dig at Jon Bon Jovi in his new song 'Come Back As Me'.

The 54-year-old star - who was the lead guitarist of the rock band Bon Jovi until he dropped out of the band's world tour in April for undisclosed personal reasons - includes words on the song which appear to refer to his spat with the singer.

The song features the lyrics: "What do you want me to say / I'll tell you anything you wanna know / You want to know about disappointment, baby I haven't watched that show.

"What do you want me to say / I gave it everything I could give / But everything just wasn't enough so I just let live and let live."

Richie gave a knowing wink to fans about the lyrics as he announced the song, tweeting: "Since everybody was diggin' stuff figured I'd lay something new on ya. And the lyric is pretty timely.... (sic)"

Despite Jon's previous suggestions Richie was having problems in his life, the guitarist's lyrics claim he is happy with himself.

He sings: "In spite of it all, in all that you see / if I die tomorrow, I'll come back as me
/ Not Elvis, or God not Frankie not Dean / If I die tomorrow I'll come back as me."

I think Sambora is cheap. He should face Jon Bon Jovi with his problems and sort them out, rather than digging at him in a song. The band, with Phil X playing lead guitar did as well without him as when he was there so he's excess baggage - Jon should let him go for good.
