"In that specific period of time, I had some crazy ass, tumultuous relationships that I was going through. One girl that I was completely in love with left me, and that was 'I'll Be There For You.' I guess this time you're really leaving, I heard your suitcase say goodbye. So it was actually borne out of an experience that I was living. 'Bad Medicine' was about the same girl. I was just drawn to this woman, sexually, physically, and mentally, but it was bad. It was bad medicine, but that's what I wanted. I wanted some more of it." - Richie Sambora
