MUSIC NEWS - Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora surprised fans over the weekend by revealing a stream of a brand new tune called "Come Back As Me" on YouTube.
Sambora gave no indication what his plans are for the song, whether he may release it as a single or part of a new solo album. He introduced the song via Twitter by saying "Since everybody was diggin stuff figured I'd lay something new on ya. And the lyric is pretty timely...."
The "digging stuff" comment likely referred to fans tweeting links to Sambora songs on YouTube, which he himself was enjoying. On the previous day he tweeted to his fans "Lotsa cool stuff comin up...keep your heart smilin..." As for the lyrics of Come Back to Me being timely, the song includes the lines; "What do you want me to say, I gave you everything I could give / But everything just wasn't enough, so I just let live and live" and "If I die tomorrow, I would come back as me."
Music fans and media are speculating Sambora might be referring to his issues with Bon Jovi. Sambora sat out the band's latest concert tour, dropping out at the last minute due to a "personal matter."
Regardless, this latest development still doesn't shed any light on what up with Sambora's future as a solo artist or as a member of NJ's Bon Jovi.
