Richie Sambora’s Family Was Directly Affected By Hurricane Sandy
There is no act in music more closely related with New Jersey than Bon Jovi. So when Hurricane Sandy ravaged its shoreline, the band was deeply affected. But was guitar player Richie Sambora‘s family personally impacted at all?
“Actually, my mother’s house was pretty decimated. She lives on a river in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, right where that hurricane had hit the coast. We had a couple feet of water in the living room and in the bottom floor of the whole house. So, mom will be living out with me here in California for a little while,” Richie tells us.
Richie is playing a show in Los Angeles next week in support of his new solo album Aftermath of the Lowdown. He’ll donate a portion of the proceeds to the New Jersey Red Cross. If you want to help out with a $10 donation, TEXT: Red Cross to 90999 now!
