Jon Bon Jovi illuminates the state of affairs Richie Sambora more than 10 years after he left the band.

During a question-and-answer session at a screening of the band's documentaries, Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi StoryJon, 62, assured music fans they wouldn't hold any grudges against Richie's decision.

“There was never a fight,” he told the audience on April 10 via PEOPLE. “There was drug abuse, there was anxiety, he was a single parent and had a lot of personal problems. But to this day none of us, me or him or David [Bryan] or Tico [Torres]ever have an argument.”

Richie, 64, who had previously struggled with painkillers and alcohol, decided to leave the group in mid-2013 Because we can Trip.

At that time, he expressed his desire to spend more time with his family. He shares a 26-year-old daughter Ava Sambora with his ex-wife Heather Locklear.

“I’m no angel,” Richie said PEOPLE in December 2020. “But I realized that Ava needed me at that time. Family had to come first and that’s exactly what happened.”

Jon agreed that Richie wanted to be home more than out and about. At the same time, however, he admitted that there was an adjustment after the loss of his long-time music partner.

“There is no animosity,” he said during the question-and-answer session. “In three of the four chapters, an integral part of my story was my right-hand man being asked to join my band, and I was lucky enough to have met him. But life went on.”

To this day, the Grammy winner respects his former bandmate for prioritizing family – even if he misses rocking out with his pal.

“I respect the idea that he wanted to stay home and raise his daughter,” he said. “It’s unfortunate for us and the world, but I’m not angry about it.”
