Post BON JOVI TOURS ON WITHOUT RICHIE
:shock:


News: "Bon Jovi rocker Richie Sambora is checking into rehab for exhaustion and sobriety issues, RadarOnline.com reports. "Richie recently has been drinking too much, and wants to get his life together," a source told Radar. The guitar star has been on tour with Bon Jovi and reportedly needs time to regroup.
"Richie has had a busy year," a friend revealed. "I think this was a culmination of all the things that overloaded his life and finally he realized he needed to take care of himself."
This isn't the first trip to rehab for the rocker, who spent time at Cirque Lodge in Utah in 2007 following his divorce from Heather Locklear and split with girlfriend Denise Richards. Bon Jovi has scheduled performances this month and is set to kick off a European tour in June. There's no word on how Sambora's treatment will affect his role in the band, but sources say the group stands behind his decision to seek treatment.

Bon Jovi statement: "Our support for Richie is absolute. He is, and will remain, a member of Bon Jovi. Although he will be absent from upcoming shows for the time being, we very much look forward to his healthy return. In the meantime, we will keep our commitment to our fans and continue our tour."

I heard they played yesterday at a jazz festival. Replacing Richie was Phil X. He's played in the studio with a number of well known artists. I know him best as the guitarist in the Fretted Americana youtube videos.
