As fans still come to terms with the untimely departure of Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi, the band has allegedly enlisted the services of New Jersey guitarist, Matt O’Ree.

Jersey Shore radio station WRAT announced via its social media channels:

The Rat wants to send out a hearty congrats to our local guitar hero Matt O’Ree. Matt has been signed on as the new guitar player for Bon Jovi as they tour Europe and other far-away lands. Congrats Matt! You deserve it big time! Couldn’t have happened to a nicer or more deserving guy. It helps that Matt can play his ass off!”

O'Ree is a veteran of the New Jersey music scene and has released three studio records since 1998′s "88 Miles", with the most recent, 2005′s "Shelf Life", winning four Asbury Park Music Awards. Bon Jovi's newest recruit has also released two live albums.

However, there has been no official statement from the band regarding the matter.
