Bon Jovi Comments On Surgery

Rock icon Jon Bon Jovi recently opened up about his ongoing recovery from an intense vocal cord surgery, expressing a candid perspective on the challenges he has faced.

Speaking to Fox News Digital ahead of the release of the docuseries “Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story,” Bon Jovi reflected on his two-year journey post-surgery, bluntly stating that the recovery process “sucks.”

He drew parallels to the injuries endured by athletes like Kobe Bryant and Tom Brady, emphasizing the shared struggle despite different fields.

The rock legend revealed a deep faith in leaving his vocal cord healing process to a higher power, remarking that it’s ultimately “up to God” whether his vocal cords fully recover.

Bon Jovi, whose live singing career was temporarily halted in 2022 due to an atrophied vocal cord, remains steadfast in his commitment to healing while acknowledging the uncertainties of the journey.

In celebration of Bon Jovi’s 40th anniversary as a band, the group collaborated with Hulu on a four-part docuseries, chronicling their illustrious career. Reflecting on this milestone, Bon Jovi emphasized the importance of archiving their journey and involving band members in commemorating the occasion, highlighting the significance of the band’s legacy.

Joined by fellow bandmate “Tico” Torres, Bon Jovi expressed enthusiasm for their upcoming album, “Forever,” slated for release on June 7th. Torres echoed Bon Jovi’s sentiments, underscoring the joy of creating music together and the band’s ability to evolve creatively even after four decades in the industry.

Addressing Richie Sambora’s departure from the band in 2013, Bon Jovi acknowledged the challenges faced but maintained that there was “never anything malicious” in their parting. He cited Sambora’s personal struggles with substance abuse and anxieties as contributing factors, emphasizing the band’s need to move forward despite the loss.

Looking ahead, Torres reflected on the possibility of a reunion with Sambora, noting the special moment when Bon Jovi reconnected with Sambora and the late Alec John Such at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018.

Despite the absence of Such and the complexities surrounding Sambora’s departure, Torres expressed respect for Sambora’s decision and the enduring bond shared among band members.
