BON JOVI GUITARIST SAYS NEW ALBUM REPRESENTS THEM TODAY

3/14/2013

Richie Sambora told us that fans can count on every new Bon Jovi album being a reflection of where the band is at upon its release. This week Bon Jovi released its 12th studio album, What About Now, and tonight (March 14th) they appear on Fox's American Idol on. The band will perform the disc's lead single, "Because We Can." Bon Jovi's performance coincides with Idol's "Live Results Show" in which the public votes for which finalist stays in the competition and who gets cut loose.

Richie Sambora explained that every new Bon Jovi album is essentially a snapshot of the band's life and times: "I think every album is born out that specific time period -- a moment in time. We never were one of those bands that actually carried songs over from, y'know, five or six years ago and brought that into a whole new situation. Maybe that happened a few times, but not that much. So, I think every album is, y'know, born out of what's happening in the world and what's happening in our own emotional feelings."

Bon Jovi performs tonight (March 14th) in Louisville, Kentucky at KFC Yum! Center.
