Bon Jovi alum Richie Sambora says he has 'a different perspective' on events surrounding band than what was seen in Hulu docuseries titled Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story SuperNayr

Bon Jovi alum Richie Sambora says he has ‘a different perspective’ on the events that took place in Bon Jovi than what was depicted in Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story, the Hulu docuseries that debuted last month.

The 64-year-old guitarist spoke with People following a performance at the 35th Barnstable Brown Kentucky Derby Eve Gala in Louisville, Kentucky.

The Perth Amboy, New Jersey native told the outlet that he felt the four-part docuseries did not reflect his story of how things went down with the rock band, as he thought it was primarily from the view of his former bandmate Jon Bon Jovi, 62.

‘It’s his project and it’s his perspective,’ said Sambora, who was interviewed in the project. ‘I have a different perspective on all of that.’

Sambora and Bon Jovi appear to be on good terms more than a decade after his 2013 exit from the band, as the famed frontman told People last month that there was ‘never animosity’ in their relationship, and that he and Sambora watched most of the documentary together.

‘He came over and watched three parts of the docuseries at my house,’ the veteran rocket told the outlet.

The docuseries, which Gotham Chopra directed and produced, also included interviews with current and former members of the band – including keyboardist David Bryan, 62, and drummer Tico Torres, 70 – and its management team.

Sambora departed from the musical ensemble – renown for his such as You Give Love a Bad Name, Livin’ on a Prayer, Born to Be My Baby and It’s My Life – in 2013.

In the Hulu doc, Sambora said that he had mixed feelings over parting ways from the popular musical ensemble, as he left the band’s tour and never returned.

‘I don’t regret leaving the situation, but I regret how I did it, so I want to apologize fully right now to the fans, especially, and also to the guys because my feet and my spirit were just not letting me walk out the door,’ Sambora said in the doc. 

Sambora told People over the weekend that his set at the gala was ‘really good’ but ‘too f***ing short’ as time constraints limited him to a pair of Bon Jovi staples: 1986’s Wanted Dead or Alive and 1988’s I’ll Be There for You.

‘I only had 23 minutes, but I blew the roof off the place,’ Sambora said.

Sambora at the event donated a guitar for a charity auction that sold for $32,000, according to the outlet.
