In news that hopefully isn't as troubling as it seems, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora will miss the next leg of Bon Jovi's touring commitments due to what the band is describing as "personal issues."
The numbers are in, the sales have been tallied, and just as expected, Bon Jovi and David Bowie's new albums are sitting in the top two positions on the Billboard charts -- and for all that talk about a tight race for the No. 1 spot, it really wasn't even close.
David Bowie and Bon Jovi are currently embroiled in a huge fight -- but it's nothing personal. In a scene that seems ripped from the mid-'80s, the two classic rock heavyweights are duking it out for the No. 1 position in next week's Billboard 200 chart.

Fans of more authentic, grit-songs will need to keep digging.
It's hard to find anyone better than New Jersey's home state hero Bruce Springsteen when it comes to opening a benefit show for victims of the East Coast's Hurricane Sandy. As expected, the inspirational rocker kicked off the '12-12-12' benefit on a high note, and he welcomed a fellow New Jersey favorite in Jon Bon Jovi to raise the excitement level even higher.
