Interesting excerpt:

“I sang ‘Prayer’ yesterday at (vocal) therapy,” he says, explaining he wants to “clear up a misconception with this storyline out there now.” “Perfectly. I can hit the high B’s and C’s, no problem.” His speaking voice today certainly sounds much stronger than it was in the documentary.

That's encouraging.

Encouraging yes. And whatever becomes of it, and I do hope it goes back to 2010-11 levels of course, but it's really refreshing to see and hear Jon talking about his voice finally more freely. And yet, I know, he is a shrewd businessman, he turned very bad situation into basically single to new cycle with all the voice stuff, but he wouldn't do that if he didn't believe in progressively getting better.

The high B and Cs in Prayer are the wo-ah notes; he hasn't sung those live in ages. If it's true, that's more than just encouraging.

Does that include the "Livin on a Prayer" line before the solo and also the "Baby it's Okay"?

Fired?



In archival footage, Sambora describes the challenge of serving at the pleasure of Jon Bon Jovi. “See, in Bon Jovi, even when I write with Jon, I write for Jon to be able to sing what he needs to be able to sing,” he says. Sambora also shares the story of being fired from the group. (Recollections vary: Bon Jovi and other members of the band point to Sambora’s substance abuse and the fact that he didn’t show up for songwriting sessions or a show, while Sambora says, “Jon got in a strange mood about time” and pins his own absence on caring for his daughter during ex-wife Heather Locklear’s mental-health issues.)

By the way, is the fact that Jon called Richie a "single father" and that Richie actually stated that Heather was not fit to take care of Ava a new development? I certainly don't recall any such statements from back then.

Interseting. Yeah this blows holes wide open in the "he's welcome back any time" bologna.

Question

“Jon got in a strange mood about time”

What does that even mean?
