MTV/SonicNet article: Richie speaks about the next album
|"Bon Jovi's Future Holds Vampire-Slaying, Another LP"
Bon Jovi still have two weeks of wild European nights ahead of them before they return to America on July 8 for the final leg of their tour, yet they're already preparing for their next studio project.
"I was gonna put out a solo record next year, but we decided we didn't want to lose the momentum we've got going as a band," guitarist Richie Sambora said over the phone Sunday afternoon before a show in Dublin, Ireland. "Jon [Bon Jovi] and I still have a lot to say as writers, so we're gonna take a brief break after this tour, then we want to get right in there and do another band record."
So far, Sambora has written frameworks for 10 or 12 new songs, all of them upbeat and optimistic.
"I'm really not feeling ballads right now," Sambora said. "Even on our new live record [One Wild Night - Live 1985-2001], there are no real ballads. They've served us well in the past, but at the moment, that's not where I'm at."
None of the new tracks have titles yet, and they're likely to be altered considerably by the time Sambora sits down with Bon Jovi in September to develop the new material.
