|Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora keeps rocking
Richie Sambora had a lot to be thankful for on Thanksgiving. After more than 30 years in the rock ’n’ roll business, the Bon Jovi guitarist is still grinding away, working on another solo effort and teaming up with band mate and longtime friend Jon Bon Jovi for a new album.
That’s why he tries to give back.
Sambora, 52, will team up with legendary singer/songwriter Richie Supa to host the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County 13th Annual “Bikers Bash” at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Dec. 9.
“I’m the kind of guy who always tries to aim at helping children,’’ says Sambora from Los Angeles. “Every time I get involved in charities it’s to help kids, whether they’re abusing drugs or runaways, or in trouble somehow.’’

“You see these kids in danger,’’ he says, remembering a trip to Joe DiMaggio’s Children’s Hospital. “I realize how blessed I am to have a healthy child. Knock on wood.’’
Daughter Ava — with ex wife Heather Locklear — is now 14. The two are headed to Hawaii together for the holidays.
