Richie Sambora has had a rough go of it, the last six months or so, and the rocker felt the need to thank his fans for standing by him.
After being in and out of rehab twice last year, and getting arrested last week for suspicion of DUI (with his daughter in the car!), Richie was back on stage at Bon Jovi's Denver concert last night, where he showed his love to the crowd.
Near the end of the show, Jon Bon Jovi introduced his partner to the screaming crowd, then left the stage. Richie used his solo time to talk to his fans. "Hello Denver," he said. "I just want to thank everyone for their support. Sometimes friends need the help of their friends to get by. This next song is one that keeps coming back in my life and is current again ... ."
Then he sang "These Days."
I wish I was there.
