Richie Sambora Biography

Founding Bon Jovi member Richie Sambora has spent almost three decades as an integral part of one of the world's most beloved bands. He's created some of the most instantly recognizable guitar sounds and penned many of the greatest rock anthems in a generation.

In a departure from his previous major label releases - Undiscovered Soul (1998) and Stranger In This Town (1991) - Sambora has returned to his roots, creating a vital and visceral album of raw power.

"This is my favorite record I've ever made," says Sambora. "It's the most fulfilling and beautiful experience in my life as a musician."

Lyrically, he tackles the universal tribulations of divorce, substance abuse, single parenthood, independence and self-reliance. "A lot has happened in my life over the last ten years, personal stuff that's cathartic for me to get out," says Sambora. "Really things that could happen to anybody, but I just happened to be in a band with the biggest concert tour in the world, and in the glare of the public eye."

I think that Richie Sambora could do a lot better than wanting to be with a two bit tramp that has told her exfriend that she was in love with her husbond as far as her I dont like her I dont think she is a good actress and no role model to kids who may look up to her she will do to him like she has done to every guy she has been with stay with him till she gets bored and then dump him whem the next best thing comes along . Like they say what comes around goes around if he had any sense left in his head he will dump her quick.
