GREAT WHITE Had No Business Using Pyro In Rhode Island: RICHIE SAMBORA

Richie Sambora of BON JOVI has shared his thoughts on the tragic fire in Rhode Island last week that took the lives of nearly 100 GREAT WHITE fans. "I was in disbelief when I saw the video," Sambora told Boston Herald. "When you saw the low ceiling in that place, they had no business... (using pyrotechnics) there. They had some flamethrowers up there, man. That was just wrong. People should be very careful about that stuff. Obviously, if you're a band at a lower level than an arena band and you're going to have pyro, you gotta have a guy who's a specialist.

"We used pyro throughout our career," Sambora added, "but not in the last couple of years. When we did use it, we had a specialist do it. But now at our stadium shows we have a fireworks display after the show, behind the stadium, and we get a fireworks company to do it just like on the Fourth of July."
